Auto-Tune made T-Pain a hitmaker, but also led to a dark period in his life.
The rapper-producer revealed in Netflix’s new series “This Is Pop” that he suffered from depression for four years after a conversation with Usher.
Usher was my friend. I really respect Usher. And he said, ‘I’m gonna tell you something, man. You kinda f‑‑‑ed up music”
T-Pain said that he chuckled when Usher told him that, but then realized the singer was serious.
“I was like, ‘What did I do? I came out and I used Auto-Tune.’ He was like, ‘Yeah, you f‑‑‑ed it up.’ I’m like, ‘But I used it, I didn’t tell everybody else to start using it. // “That is the very moment, and I don’t even think I realized this for a long time, but that’s the very moment that started a four-year depression for me.”
Of course once a clip from the eight part series made it rounds on twitter Usher was trending
