Recently T-Pain visited the Hot 97 studios to have a chat. The interview was full of laughs as Nappy Boy talked about faking sports talk, how he first found music, and having trouble in school. Faheem Rasheed Najm (real name, how many of you knew that?) eventually dropped out of school and covered the Akon track “Locked Up” and that’s what led to him being signed to Konvict Music. He went on to reveal how he found that classic auto tune sound, which actually came from J-Lo. He said, “I had been looking for [Auto-Tune] for a while, and someone gave me a hack CD of all these plug-ins and I found it. I heard it that one time on that Jennifer Lopez song where she did it for like a second, and I was like, I’m gonna find that and that’s gonna be my thing.” Check out the full interview below!
