T-Pain has good song content.... hes a freak too lol....


Too bad he CAN'T sing........


ay theres enuff singers already in the game, 1 dude who uses a machine aint too bad


Indeed, it brings a nice balance.

That's why when people hear a man singing with a synthesizer, they automatically know it's T-Pain.

Yeah just by allowing T-Pain in the genre of R&B..........also helps the decline of R&B!

I Agree! Did you hear him at the 2007 VH1 Hip Hop Honors singing "I Wanna?" He sounded terrible. I figure that much anyway since on all his songs he uses the synthesizer.

Yeah, he basically made it big because of his whole package, not necessarily just his voice, lol.

He'll still last longer than some others due to the fact that he has a unique style.

R&B isn't dead its just hibernating right now, when things get so big it goes away for a while to build up strength, it will be back, trust me!!

I don't think R&B will ever be as good as it used to be..how could you top someone like Marvin Gaye? But man I'd be lying if I said Beyonce wasn't hella attractive. But yeah no one can ever outdo old school R&B..although there are some good sex songs out nowadays =P

I think R&b is alright we have some deep artists still around I barely listen to straight rap pr hip hop i'm more into R&B and from what i have on my i pod i aint complainin. I guess you just have to be selective in what you like. I agree that old school R&b was the shyt but the new cats aint so bad.

As for Anthony and Lyfe, they BOTH get on my nerves! They wine TOO DAMN MUCH in their songs like they Jodeci. ONLY Jodeci...and KC & Jojo can pull all the damn winin' and make it sound good! However, they do pull of some good songs at times. The same with Fantasia. She has a voice, just STOP dragging the song to the ground and learn how to carry it. "Truth Is" is the only song I've heard that she's been able to do that. ONLY MJB can pull off all that "OOOOOOOOO" and whoodi whoodi woo and make it sound good.
