T-Pain is giving new up-and-coming artists his two cents.

In a recent Twitch stream, the rapper delivered an emotional rant about how the music industry lacks originality in this current day and age. He specifically calls out young MCs who appear to copy today’s biggest stars. In the broadcast, audiences can here T-Pain say, “You know when your shit sounds like somebody else’s sh*t. You’re making it because you think—because you’re in the studio, like, ‘What’s the No. 1 record right now? We need to make another one of those!’ Stop doing that! Stop! You’re not original! Give me some original sh*t!”

The MC doubles down on his opinion, seemingly putting young artists on blast for failing to produce unique sounds and for sticking too closely to the formula. T-Pain adds, “Stop! Just f***ing do something else! God damn it! Do some different music! We have all the shit that you’re doing. We already have it! Lil Uzi Vert is already doing it. Lil Baby is already doing it. DaBaby is already doing it. It’s literally two n***as with Baby in their names that’s already doing all the music you want! Do something else! Do something else! That’s it! That’s all we want … Stop sending me this bullshit! And then get mad when I don’t like it. Jesus god-damn tap-dancing Christ!”

T-Pain clarifies that he does believe that some young artists are capable of creating good music, however, those artists that create “bad music” are only successful because they spend money on it. T-Pain’s comments garnered a lot of mixed reactions on social media with some thinking that the artist might be jealous of the success of some younger artists. He later addressed the point in a tweet stating he had nothing to prove and “got 2 legit Grammies in the last 3 years.”
