T-Pain Says EDM DJs Are Hurting DJ Culture

T-Pain is famous for singing on hit singles but the Florida native was actually a DJ before he became a singer and currently gigs on a regular basis.
During a recent interview with Hot 97’s “Ebro in the Morning,” the two-time Grammy winner spoke his mind about the current state of DJing, saying that EDM DJs are hurting the culture:

“You know who’s hurting DJs? House DJs. EDM DJs … If you’re a DJ and you can’t rock a crowd from someone else’s computer then you’re not a real DJ.”

Although it sounds like a generalization, we presume he wasn’t talking about every single EDM DJ, but rather those who pre-record their sets (David Guetta and Paris Hilton were named specifically).

T-Pain also discussed his current label situation, his career in comparison with Lil Jon’s and his recent performance without auto-tune that went viral.
