Here’s a video of T-Pain singing in front of a small audience without any effects, and he’s actually pretty good.
T-Pain used to say that using auto-tune was just his style (coming from a guy with dreadlocks) and did we believe him? No, we just thought he was shit without it.
But it turns out we were wrong and he’s actually not that bad.
The following video was recorded in association with NPR Music as a “Tiny Desk Concert.” Other artists that have performed Tiny Desk Concerts include Macklemore, Hozier and Jake Bugg.
