T-Pain caught a lot of slack for the heavy use of Auto-Tune in his music in the mid-2000s. He admitted that Usher told him he ruined music by using Auto-Tune and the Florida native said he went through a severe battle with depression after that revelation.

During his conversation with Billboard in August, Usher claimed he and T-Pain have “spoken since and we’re good.” But it looks like that’s far from the truth. T-Pain recently visited The Angie Martinez Show and revealed Usher never had a conversation with him to patch anything up.

“I texted him and I was like, ‘Yo, I know you saw what happened. I know you saw the interview.’ ‘Cause I told his A&R about the interview years ago because he was asking me to work with Usher,” T-Pain said. “So I hit Usher after the interview came out and I’m like, ‘I’m sure you saw what happened. That was the truth, that’s what happened, you definitely said that.’ I remember that whole day.”

He added, “Then all he texted me back was, ‘Let’s not text, let’s talk.’ And I was like, ‘Cool, hit me up.’ And I never heard from him, he never called me. I feel like I initiated the contact.”

Angie Martinez reminded T-Pain that both artists have busy schedules and Usher may have thought they would fix things before the interview aired. T-Pain recognized that could be the case and that Usher probably isn’t paying attention to any of this with everything he has going on with his Vegas residency and more.

T-Pain Went Into Depression After Usher Said Auto-Tune ‘Fucked Up Music’

This whole issue started when T-Pain spoke about his conversation with Usher on an episode of Netflix’s This Is Pop docuseries in June. T-Pain was on a plane when a flight attendant told him the Confessions singer wanted to speak to him.

“Usher was my friend,” T-Pain said in the clip. “I really respect Usher. And he said, ‘I’m gonna tell you something, man. You kinda fucked up music.’ That is the very moment, and I don’t even think I realized this for a long time, but that’s the very moment that started a four-year depression for me.”
