T-Pain Says That Future Doesn't Know How To Use Auto-Tune

T-Pain addresses Future's use of Auto-Tune but says that he respects the rapper's movement.

T-Pain came at Future earlier this week after posting a picture on Instagram that insinuated that the latter stole the idea to feature a Bugatti in his music video.

During an interview with Hot 93.7, Teddy P turned his focuse to Future's music, stating that he doesn't know how to use Auto-Tune. While he was quick to point out his technological shortcomings, he did commend Future for his songwriting abilities.

“I don’t think Future gets the technology very well. I don’t think he understands how it actually works," he said. "He’s writing great songs. He's a great writer. Keep in mind, you can use Auto-Tune and you can know how to work perfectly, but you still have to know how to write a good song. Just because he sound good doesn't mean he's saying good stuff. As far as how he uses Auto-Tune, I don't think he knows how it works. I think he’s thinking that you just turn it on, and then it just happens. But nah, he writes great, great hooks and great songs themselves. I just don't think he actually knows how to use Auto-Tune yet."

He also noted that many musicians don't know how to properly use the plug-in, recording their vocals and then adding on the filter after. While he suggested that Future was one of those artists, he bigged up his movement and said that he's "great."

“A lot of people don’t sing with it, a lot of people just sing and then put it on after, which is a terrible mistake. There’s a lot of stuff you’ve gotta know about Auto-Tune before you can start using it, because it’s the hot thing to do. But Future’s still great right now, he’s doing his thing.”

T-Pain most recently released his new mixtape Stoic, while Future dropped the repackaged version of his debut Pluto as Pluto 3D.

    Auto-Tune, really nigga. This nigga can suck a fat dick with that shit. Future just took this nigga lane and ran with it. Thats why these nigga making statements so he can become revelant. On another note its niggas on here posting Big Bang as if they me. Lol i ain't mad at you niggas following the movement. Fuck these fags who push that homo shit to the public. I ain't really mad at you nerd niggas. Just stay in yall fucking place. Big bang is back niggas.

      BenGay Devlin Yeah niggas obviously care(especially you) to waste no time and post on my shit. Also niggas using my name as if they me so yeah niggas do care. They feel the movement, Queers and Nerds ain't never been cool in hip hop. But now many of you are fags and its cool. T-Pizzle i guess that makes sense. I hate Fags cause i am a fag. I guess so with logic like that i can't even call you queers nerds no more. I bet you are one of those Knee pad wearing fags who don't wonna scrap up his knees from sucking dick.

    • T-Pizzle

      This nigga Big Bang is gay thats why nigga always bringin up fags and shit in all his posts. Nigga pull yo skirt up and come out the closet.

    ace hood, future and rick ross had to borrow t-pains bugatti to film a video for their song called bugatti!

  • killacam

    I used to hate so much on Future when Tony Montana came out,I found him so wack, but after giving him a chance and hearing him featured on other people's songs, its obvious he has talent and is capable of writing a nice song and melody. Hes also able to switch it up sometimes while T-Pain has been singing the same shit for years.

  • Anonymous

    Ummm....Who really cares dude? Auto Tune is overused, and wack as hell. Furthermore, who made this clown the national spokesperson for "Auto Tune". I don't like the way you use it either T-Pain, meaning I don't like your music at all. You used it becuase yo azz can't sing and thought it would help your career in fooling the masses. Which it did, but for me and my house, we will listen to Rodger Troutman before we listen to your lame azz music.

    Who the fuck is Future? Is he talking about Odd Future? Lol @ "doesn't know how to use autotune". Autotune is for those who dont know what they're doing to begin with, so perfect.

  • John-Boy

    @ 1st Anonymous. Never Understand Future??? The man says some the dumbest most simplestic B.S. ever put on wax. What the hell is hard to udnerstand? TONY MONTANA, TONY MONTANA, TONY MONTANA. TURN OUT THE LIGHTS, IM LOOKIN FOR HER TO. What the hell is hard to understand about that? Anonymous 2. You are an idiot. Nuff said.

  • John-Boy

    T Pain is garbage but I agree that he sounds waaaaaay better than Future with auto-tune. Future sounds like he has Herpes on his vocal cords. One day Future will be in the position that Pain is in. A washed up has been who is taking shots at the new hot artist.

  • Anonymous

    I dont get the whole hype thing around future. That song 'turn the lights out' or something is straight trash. People who actually have talent deserve more over this geezer. FUTURE = TRASH

  • Glenn P

    Future sounds like a stroke victim. How anyone can tolerate his screaming into the mic is beyond me. People have a very loose perception of what is and isn't "music" these days.

    T-pain= whack as a moterfucker Future= whack as a mother fucker WHY DONT ALL THESE SO CALLED RAPPERS JUST STOP USING AUTO-TUNE!! YOU ALL SOUND LIKE CHER WITH THAT GAY SHIT. IMAGINE PAC OR BIG USING AUTO-TUNE WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON MAN!! T-PAIN GO THROW URSELF OFF A BRIDGE WITH WEEZY, LIL B, FUTURE, ACE HOOD AND ALL THE OTHER WHACK RAPPERS OUT THERE AND GIVE US OUR HIP HOP BACK ITS OURS, NOT YOURS!! GO TAKE YOUR AUTO TUNE AND SHOVE IT UP UR ASS T-PAIN!

  • J

    Looks like T-pain is pissed because no one lookin' at him. I've only heard t-pain sing without auto tune maybe twice but no more than that. Future on the other hand stays like that. Either way, both are annoying. I see autotune battles.

  • Anonymous

    Future sounds like that on purpose its not that hard to know how to use auto-tune...

  • money

    But Future uses the T-Pain effect plugin to sound like that so whats wrong with that!

  • Frank

    time for jay-z to make the D.O.A part 2

  • Anonymous

    Peter Frampton didn't go at T pain, neither did the Troutmann estate so why is he hating on his descendand?

  • Anonymous

    i dont think its just not knowing how to use auto tune but lets be real future has one of the worse singing voices ive ever heard and he doesnt sound any better with the auto tune his voice is like fingernails on a chalk board but we got these dumbass fans who are 13 years old and think hip hop started with people like 2 chainz and future and the labels are even more of a let down for signing cats without talent then the rest who do have talent hardly get any love and people want them to sound like the same mediocre crap thats been going on since 2008

    Plain and simple: whether we're talking about Ron Browz, Future or T-Pain, one thing is for certain - auto-tune is for dudes that cant sing...

    • Pat

      @Black: They used the Talkbox on California Love. And saying that Autotune is for people who can't sing is totally stupid, it's just an effect, just like a reverb or distortion or whatever. The fact that some people who can't sing use autotune doesn't imply that people using autotune can't sing without it

    • BLACK

      ^^WORD MY NIGGA, YOU OUT HERE SCHOOLING US AND SHIT. YO...SO WHAT'S THAT SHIT THEY USE ON THE CALIFORNIA LOVE TRACK?? AUTO-TUNE OR ROGER TROUTMAN VOCODER??? I BET MAD NIGGAZ WANNA KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT MY NIGGA

    • yojzzee

      Roger Troutman did not use auto-tune. It was a Talkbox vocoder. Its different from autotune because it typically requires an instrument like a keyboard (not vocals) and sounds less like a human voice.

    • Anonymous

      Roger Troutman could. T-Pain ain't a crooner, but he can sing. Snoop did it more justice than what Future's doing.

  • the dude

    I can easily translate what T-Pain is saying: "I'm no longer relevant, so I'm gonna go at other people who are relevant." Thanks for sharing, T-Pain.

  • BLACK

    THANKS, T-PAIN. I BELIEVE THAT THE WHOLE CONCEPT BEHIND FUTURE IS HIM NOT BEING ABLE TO SING, NOT ABLE TO USE AUTO-TUNE AND BEING A GENERALLY CRAPPY ARTISTS. SOMEHOW THAT IS VERY APPEALING.

  • Anonymous

    this is tpain saying: "that nigga Future sucks ... but don't quote me saying that he sucks"

  • Slick

    Future or Tpain both suck, Anyone on this forum could make a hit song with autotune look go sing this into and auto-tune machine, I'm in love with a midget,ohhhhhhhh im in love with a midgetttttttt,yea ee yeah im in love with a midgettt

  • da truth

    T-Pain is da maaan, but this is Future's style.. thats just his style .. but i agree with T

  • Anonymous

    He didnt insinuate that he stole the idea of featuring a Bugatti in a video! They used his Bugatti! He said it was funny that the new T-Pain (Future) had to use to old T-Pain's (T-Pain) actual Bugatti for the music video!

  • Big Bang

    Damm Tpain sucks now he owns the right to comment on every person that use autotune? lol what a clown

    • donnis mac

      You know what he's saying, dude ain't using it right. I can hear it. Rob Browz ("old" Future) didn't know how to use it either.

  • nathan

    actually there is a correct way to use auto-tune, you have to hit certain notes to get the desired effect,. you cant just talk into it and sound like t-pain or w.e you have to actually hit certain notes with your voice.

  • escoveli

    Tpain stfu you hating because your buzz is on Graveyard mode. Im not a Future fan but he has a couple of hits. I hate when garbage ass men and women fall off and hate on the present. You the past bra deal wit it.

  • Dyaz

    Implying using auto-tune is a skill...smh

  • therealwayno

    Now there is a "proper" way to use auto tune? LOL.

  • griz9

    i don't know how the fuck everybody thinks future is good in any respect at all. that dude is ass.
