T-Pain Says He Went into Depression After Usher Told Him He Ruined Music with Auto Tune

American singer and rapper, Faheem Rasheed Najm also known as T-Pain, has revealed how Usher made him sink into depression.

T-Pain says Usher summoned him some years back just to casually let him know he had ruined the music business by popularizing autotune.

According to T-pain, Usher believed T-pain had tainted professional singing for other artists like Usher, who use their natural voice, and he supposedly said it with a straight face.

The 35 year old rapper became known for popularising Auto-Tune in music, using the pitch correction technique on smash hits like Low with Flo-Rida and Good Life with Kanye West.
