T-Pain Speaks On Diddy Royalties: “This Takes Everything To A Whole Nother Level”

T-Pain’s stock has apparently risen courtesy of Diddy.

As previously reported, T-Pain, who has given Diddy permission to use Auto-Tune, will be receiving half a point on the mogul’s next album.

“I just wanna voice that, this stuff just happened,” Pain said in a youtube clip after Diddy announced he was going to use Auto-Tune on his next album. “I didn’t do it. It’s just Diddy. I just wanna announce that show prices are going up, features…This takes everything to a whole nother level. All the people spreading rumors, saying T-Pain charges $100,000 for a show…I actually do now.”

The clip starts with Diddy claiming to officially have permission to use Auto-Tune. The mogul then reveals his reasoning for awarding  Pain with royalties off the album.  “He didn’t negotiate with me,” Diddy said, “but as a gracious offer of gratitude, I’m giving him half a point on my album just because …Cause I got extra points too.”

“I know there’s a list of cats that he’s given permission to Ye, Wayne, Chris Brown and now myself,” he continued. ”That’s not pro-rated. That’s off the point off the album just because he let me dabble in the tune. It’s called graciousness, motherfuckas.” -Michael Cohen

      Puffy is still paying the Crips protection Royalties for when we held him down for protecting him & Biggie back in 95-96. He was personally shook to death of me, 1 time I had to baby sit him @ an Vibe Awards Marlon Wayans comes over to shake his hand, I immediatly smack the shit outta Marlon and said, “If you touch him again, Imma kick you in the jaw and make yo balls swell!” He then takes his hand back and runs away. I told Puffy gay ass used to play the movie “Bodygaurd” Anthem by Whitney Houston because he was shook to death of the Piru’s and knew the South Side Crips were his firewall! I used to play Fu Shnikens instead in my walkmen. I stepped to T. Pain @ Club Zino 7 months ago and made him buy me chicken wings, he was crying and shit so I smack the shit outta E.Class & then go down the Carroll City take a bull horn and said, “All the real G’z of Miami, All of you are bitches and if anybody want a part of me get it!” I fire 2 rounds of my .22 pistol in the air they saw the arsonal I was working w/ so they bacced down! ECG-UNIT CRIP 4 LIFE SPIDER LOC 4 LIFE!

  • ruffhuff

    If diddy paid tpain for using it than i think t pain should take points of his points and give it to the makers of auto tune because its been around way before tpain… anyone remember California Love… tupac?… i mean fuck… wasnt peter frampton’s talking guitar kinda like auto tune?… where are dr dre’s or deathrow’s royalties or peter framptons and the dozens of other examples on where people use voice mods i mean fuck… its just a computer program and to tell you the thruth… most songs with this autotune voice sound gay as fuck right off the bat

  • Jamal7Mile

    Remember George Clinton’s “Atomic Dog” and the part where he goes Bow-wow-wow-yippe-yo-yippe-ya? That was some type of voice box. Oh yeah, the dude who made Double Dutch Bus (coming down the streeeeeet, ha ha). That couldn’t be his real voice either. I might have the dates wrong but them two seemed to have come out before Zapp… right???? Ahh, I’m just sayin’…

    • MFKNRMX!

      it was his real voice.

  • kEITH

  • Bigtony224

    I dont get it. Since when does anyone have to ask swagless no flow TPain for permission for anything. Secondly why these niggas acting like he invented this shit. Pay royalties to peter frampton or somethin. This whole thing is just gettin foolish, since when did all rap music have to be in autotune. And I’m sure this Diddy album will be great just like the last. (yeah right) Come on instead of worrying about singin you should work on some flow or becoming relevant again.

  • Clarity

    just to clarify things because i get read this and hear this every where…..Roger and T-pain use 2 different devices….roger used a vocoder t-pain uses auto tune…vocoders blend ur voice with a synth sound auto tune corrects your voice when u sing out of tune….t-pain sets the settings to try and correct all most all of the errors as fast as possible which makes it have that sound to it…Clarity

    • Big Jay

      Roger Troutman used a talk-box, not a vocoder.

    Let me get this straight. Did T-Pain actually have any part in inventing that auto tune shit. Don’t get me wrong dude can make some catchy ass tunes but enough is enough! Now’s about the time for something else to be hot.

  • Trickdd

    T-Pain isn’t getting none of my money so I’m alright with the lame auto tune shit Lol For real though how you gonna pay T-Pain for the shit and he didn’t even invent the shit I’m not gonna lie auto tune is tight on some songs like Cali Love but a whole song with the bullshit is fucking lame I can’t believe people like Kanye,Wayne, Diddy and Pain think the shit is tight it was getting old with just T Pain using it now all these other dumb ass rappers are doing it I hope Wayne realizes all these other rappers are using it and he stops just to be different again
