T-Pain Feels 'Misunderstood'
The Auto-Tune hip-hop star thinks people class him as a certain artist...
T-Pain recently claimed that he feels misunderstood in the music business.
Even though he has won a Grammy and featured on many No. 1 hit singles, he still feels that people look at him as a certain artist, the ring-tone, one-hit wonder type, he said in a recent interview with the Boombox.
T-Pain said: "It's definitely something different for me. It's something new that I haven't really touched. I went more towards what I've been trying to do, and figured people wouldn't accept yet. I mean it's kinda hard for people to accept what I'm doing you know what I'm saying?
"I don't know why. If I do a song, and then somebody else does the exact same song, they [critics] like the other person's song before mine's for some reason, I have no idea why. It's been that way for a long time."
He added: "They've never been like, my songs, which is weird. So like, 'Blame It' won a Grammy before any other one of my songs and 'Blame It' sounds more like a T-Pain song than any other song I've been on, so that's pretty weird. I think it's an imagery thing, I don't know if they wanna give the chubby guy with dreads a Grammy, who knows."
