In an Instagram post shared by The Jasmine Brand on Wednesday July 14, the legendary beatmaker accepted a rant on AutoTune pioneer continued last week on newer artists appearing identical.
“Shout at @tpain !! ” newly single Dr. Dre said at the beginning of his comment. “I’m here making ass fun, but he’s right. I know and feel exactly what you’re saying.”
July 6, T-Pain did a five-hour long livestream on his Twitch channel where he previewed music clips sent to him by artists trying to make a name for themselves. However, he became frustrated after the songs he performed with emulated artists like Juice Wrld and Drake, urging the rappers to “show him something different”.
“You know when your shit looks like someone else’s shit,” Pain says. “You do it because you think … Because you’re in the studio like, ‘What’s the # 1 record right now? We have to do another one.'”
“Stop!”, Growls the rapper “I Like Dat”. “Just do something else. Just … damn. Make different music. We have all the shit you do. We already have it. Lil Uzi Vert already does it, Lil Baby already does it, DaBaby is it is already done. It’s literally two niggas with Baby in their names already making the music you want. Do something else! Do something else! That’s all! That’s all we want! Do something else!
T-Pain was far from over. “Holy shit,” he continues to moan. “We have it. We already have it. You don’t have to make that music anymore. We already have the music. We have Lil Baby, we have DaBaby, we have Lil Uzi Vert, we have Lil Yachty. We have Lil everyone. Do something else. Holy shit. “
“Stop sending me this bullshit,” adds the rapper. “And then I get mad when I don’t like it. Jesus Christ tap-dancing.”
Pain is fed up with the lack of originality in music these days and you can see his rant below around 3:30:27.
Any guesses on dollar amounts before looking?
