‘While everybody else was snapping their fingers and two-steppin’, it looks like Usher Raymond wasn’t feeling T-Pain’s vibe at all, according to his account of events,’ TSR notes.
‘According to T-Pain, Usher reportedly contributed to what led to a four-year depression for the artist after a conversation in 2013. In an upcoming @thisispop Netflix documentary, T-Pain stated they were on a plane to the BET Awards and while sleeping, Usher allegedly asked the stewardess to wake him up from a nap to have a conversation about his music.’ TSR said.

T-Pain stated, ‘I really respect Usher,’ then he continued to detail their conversation. He alleges that Usher stated, ‘I’m gonna tell you something, man. You kinda f***ed up…’
Someone said: ‘His artistry was THAT amazing that a singer who’s been successful since the 90’s said that he “ruined” an entire industry … smells like impact 👃🏽 that’s LEGENDARY if you ask me. The power he has 💎✨’
A follower posted this: ‘Na Pimp … we changed music. @Tpain Up. 4L. 🔥 so much opposition when greatest shows up.’
One other commenter posted: ‘Then usher used auto tune on the song OMG smh , tpain didn’t mess up music usher was hating,’ and someone else said: ‘one thing t-pain never had is self-confidence. this man doesn’t know how he owned the industry at some point. he better act like the legend he is. i’m tired!’
A commenter posted this: ‘Then he ended up using the same thing in his music when it was the vibe! T-Pain started a WHOLE WAVE! The reason why he’s the king of autotune is because he can actually sing without it! Not many of the people who use it now can say the same.’
One other follower said: ‘T-Pain was killing the game in the 2000s if Usher was jealous just say that ma boy.’
