[AUTO-TUNESMITH] Don't hate the player, hate the game. In this case, the game is AutoTune, and the player is T-Pain. In the mid-aughts, the Florida-born "rappa ternt sanga" seized upon the technology previously used to trick listeners into believing Britney Spears could actually hold a note and devised an entire persona out of it. Becoming a robotic, post-millennial Nate Dogg, the dude assisted on roughly 80 bajillion hit singles toward the end of the decade, while also churning out several club (and strip club) staples under his own name, many of which still get played today. The downside, of course, was that every other commercial rapper and R&B singer in the world glommed onto what he was doing, despite not having one-tenth of his goofy charisma, making him the symbol of a trend that proved immensely grating once it became inescapable. But the best thing about being T-Pain is never having to apologize: Even after Jay-Z declared AutoTune dead in 2009, he just kept on keeping on, up to and including his latest single, "Drankin' Patna." Long may he run.
