T-Pain Says Kanye West Copied One of His Albums For '808s & Heartbreak'

“I’m not just being a d*ck saying that shit sounds a lot like mine.”

Ten years ago T-Pain dropped his Rappa Ternt Sanga album and says the influence from the album has remained relevant to this day. According to the newfound singer, he also feels Kanye West bit his style on Rappa Ternt Sanga and used it for 808s & Heartbreak. During a recent interview with Billboard, the one time auto-tune sensation was asked how the sound he used on that project will remain relevant, in which he responded with this:

“I would say as recent as Kanye West’s 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 Sanga is still relevant because the sound is still prevalent in the whole industry. It’s never gonna stop.”
