T-Pain On Kanye West's Auto-Tune: 'He Doesn't Use It Correctly'

Pain has some critiques for Yeezy.

Many may feel that T-Pain is the King of Auto-Tune, having worked with it throughout his career and helped to popularize its use. But there's another Auto-Tune favorite who Pain himself doesn't think qualifies for Auto-Tune royalty: Kanye West.

"Kanye uses it, but he doesn’t use it correctly," the singer told "HuffPost Live." "He makes great music with it, but the way that I use it and the way that I’ve shown Chris [Brown] and Jamie [Foxx] to use it, he doesn’t use it that way."

And what's the issue, exactly? The order of operations.

"[Kanye] sings without it first and then he puts [Auto-Tune] on after he’s done with the vocals," the "Up Down" singer added. "You don’t know how it’s going to come out. You can’t catch your mistakes before they happen. So sometimes it gets a little bit wobbly and things like that...[808s & Heartbreak] was actually good, but I had a lot to do with that album."

These two have been at odds over Auto-Tune in the past. Just check out the video below for proof.
