Months back, an interview with T-Pain went viral after he claimed that Usher once told him that he “f*cked up” the music game with autotune.
“So I hit Usher after the interview came out, and I was like, ‘Yo, I’m sure you saw what’s going on,’ and then all he texted me back was ‘Let’s not text, let’s talk.’ And I was like, ‘Cool, hit me up,'” said T-Pain. Usher did not hit him up.
In an interview for This Is Pop on Netflix, T-Pain said:
“So I got up and went back. He was like ‘Oh, how’s everything going?’ Quick small talk, no big deal,” he explained. “And he was like, ‘Man, I wanna tell you something.’ I thought he was about to tell me something real—he sounded real concerned. Then he was like ‘man, you kinda fucked up music.’ I didn’t understand.”
He said he went into a four year depression after his conversation with Usher.
