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).
Note: the section about DJing begins at nine-and-a-half minutes in.
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.

T-Pain Singing Without Auto-Tune
T-Pain will forever be associated with auto-tune, thanks to a massively successful run in the mid-2000s which saw him at the top of the charts. The 30-year-old can hold it down without the technology though, as a new video from NPR Music shows.
It’s pretty amazing to hear Tallahassee Pain sing songs like “Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin’),” “Up Down (Do This All Day)” and “Drankin’ Patna” assisted by only a keyboardist and his own vocal cords.
“People felt like I was using [auto-tune] to sound good . . . But I was just using it to sound different.”
