T-Pain is fed up with the lack of originality in hip-hop.
During the live stream on Twitch, the King of Auto-Tune berated today’s emerging artists for not being themselves. Instead of bringing something new to the table, he feels like they’re trying to copy what’s already out there.
“You are not original. Give me some original shit, ”he quipped. “Make other music. We have all the shit you do. We already have it. Lil Uzi Vert is already doing it. Lil baby already does. DaBaby is already doing it. It’s literally two n ** as with “baby” in their name already making all the music you want. Do something else. That’s all we want. “
During his passionate ranting, the “I Like Dat” singer said he was tired of people sending him “the same damn music as everyone else”. “Stop sending me this bullshit. And then I get pissed off if I don’t fucking like it, ”he said.
He doesn’t find anything wrong with today’s generation, but he just wishes that they show more creativity in their music. “I’m not saying this generation of music is worse than any other,” added T-Pain. “I don’t care about numbers because I know all that shit can be bought … But I’m ashamed that you do something different with your damn music.”
“Do something I haven’t heard,” he urged. “Give me something that will mean something.”
T-Pain itself has been criticized in the past. He recently announced that he was depressed for four years after Usher told him that he “screwed up” music because of his use of auto-tune.
