T-Pain released the album Rappa Ternt Sanga 10 years ago, but its influence has still remained strong according to T-Pain.

During an interview with Billboard, the singer was recently asked how the sound he used on that project has stayed relevant.

“I would say as recent as 808s & Heartbreak, which was a direct copy of Rappa Ternt Sanga,” Pain explained. “I’m not just being a d-ck saying that sh-t sounds a lot like mine. Like literally [Kanye] told me that he listened to Rappa Ternt Sanga and he made 808s & Heartbreak. He even brought me in to make it sound more like Rappa Ternt Sanga. [Laughs.] Something that I did that was directly copied got so many awards — that’s evidence right there. Rappa Ternt Sangais still relevant because the sound is still prevalent in the whole industry. It’s never gonna stop.”

T-Pain didn’t stop there saying Kanye isn’t the only person he’s influenced.

“None of this wouldn’t be happening without Rappa Ternt Sanga or me as a whole entity, period,” he explained. “None of this whole sound of music and it’s not even just rap and R&B — it’s going into pop and techno and dubstep and everything. It’s all kinda came from me. I’m seeing cartoons using Auto-Tune. The crazy thing was if this didn’t come from me, then it would’ve been used a lot more before me. I’ve heard Cher use it, Jennifer Lopez use it then after I did it, the whole world came [onboard]. It’s like all these things happened until I did it.”

This is isn’t the first time T-Pain has spoke on Kanye. Last year he made headlines when he said Kanye doesn’t use auto-tune correctly. He also talked what he had to do with the album for the people who didn’t know. The two albums may be connected with auto-tune, but is 808’s & Heartbreak really a carbon copy of Rappa Ternt Sanga? Let us know!
