T-Pain Sings Without Auto-Tune And It’s AWESOME

T-Pain, the godfather of auto-tune, will forever hold a special place in the hearts of those that grew up listening to songs like “I’m Sprung,” “Buy U A Drink” and “Bartender.” I’m sure this applies to many of you. But did you know… that T-Pizzle had a set of pipes quite like this? C’mon man, release some music like THIS! I’m sure every future producer will be all over the remixes.

Nah but on the real, the dude shows clearly he’s mad talented. That natural voice over the gentle piano keys, and the amount of soul he puts into it… Could this mini video with NPR be the beginnings of promo for his next phase in music? Could this tweet back from 2013 be hinting at what we just witnessed? Stoicville: The Phoenix is apparently slated for a 2014 release, although nothing has been announced quite yet. In the meantime… enjoy.
