The original hip hop king of Auto-Tune T-Pain (Roger Troutman was the originator) offered his opinion of Future during a recent interview with Hartford, Connecticut’s Hot 93.7.

While Pain gives Future props and says he’s a great songwriter, he also said he doesn’t believe the ATL rapper knows how to properly use Auto-Tune.

“I don’t think Future gets the technology very well. I don’t think he understands how it actually works,” T-Pain said. “He’s writing great songs. He’s a great writer. Keep in mind, you can use Auto-Tune and you can know how to work perfectly, but you still have to know how to write a good song. Just because he sound good doesn’t mean he’s saying good stuff. As far as how he uses Auto-Tune, I don’t think he knows how it works. I think he’s thinking that you just turn it on, and then it just happens. But nah, he writes great, great hooks and great songs themselves. I just don’t think he actually knows how to use Auto-Tune yet.”

T-Pain added that a lot of artists don’t know how to properly use Auto-Tune.

“A lot of people don’t sing with it, a lot of people just sing and then put it on after, which is a terrible mistake,” he said. “There’s a lot of stuff you’ve gotta know about Auto-Tune before you can start using it, because it’s the hot thing to do. But Future’s still great right now, he’s doing his thing.”
