Looks like Auto-tune will still be very popular in the 09.
Shame on T-pain for taken Diddys money. Why Diddy asking permission and paying dude when T-pain didnt even invent the machine. Diddy be the only one paying dude, i dont see any other rapper using it paying t-pain. T-pain should pay Rogers family and even cher in that case.
first of all…..
WHAT THE FUCK IS AUTO-TUNES?
2nd of all…..
what the fuck does he mean by half a point? point of what….source ratings?
co sign with number 1 the shits disgustin t-pan is so immature. and before i say anything let it be known im a t-pain fan but…. he’s being real childish about this whole thing he used it caz of his obvious lack of talent. HE IS CREATIVE in making those catchy hooks and songs you can relate to but he isnt as talented as a r.kelly or usher. you’d think he’d be grateful just to know he is a trendsetter in the game and pivotal to alot of people’s success. alot of people using the autotune but they dnt make the same catchy hooks as him and dont make the same songs as him. this is just feeding his ego. maybe its the fact that he gettin so salty about it diddy breakin him off lol. but this aint helpin him, i mean fuck… when you seak about the success of artist in the 2000 he gonna be mentioned he in the history books. i wudnt ave even gave half ass artist like ace hood a chance if it wasnt for him. *sighs* for all you crazed fans, rappers are just regular people. idiots like the rest of us
wuts a half a point?
If I’m not mistaken that refers to half a percentage point. The accounting for albums is broken down into 100 percentage points most of that goes to the lable for promotion, a certan amount goes to manufacturing for discs and packaging and what’s left goes to the talent(artist, producers, engineer). Just to put in perspective a half a point off a Diddy album could could add up to more than what most people make in a year.
who buys diddys albums
Before everyone gets there panties this is what Diddy does he takes what’s popular and jacks that shit for his project so this should be shocking to anyone.
If u go and look it up you will see that Diddy is a MULTIPLATINUM selling artist. As a matter of fact to my knowledge I beleive Press Play is a platinum album…
Another album from Diddy? Can’t wait … NOT.
Real Hip Hop will stop this auto tune garbage , don’t worry about that the auto tune era will soon get stomped out.
autotune era is gonna get alot worse, before it gets better
this nigga T pain thinking he invented this shit??..fuck out of here..
Diddy ur garbage n wack only 55 year old dudes ie hood buy ur shit stop rhymin
thats like paying for sex
it’s god to see brothers making money!
to all my hungry mo’foz
it’s good to see brothers making money!
to all my hungry mo’foz
half a point is 0.5% of what diddy album sales will make
knowing there is a cut for the authors, the composers, the vocalists, the A&R, the exec producers, the producers, the distributers, etc..
generally the biggest share is for the producers and the distributors then the authors & composers andthen the vocalists
this has nothing to do with publishing money though
publishing money (which is calculated in proportion of the exposure the tracks get) is where the authors and composers are caking
0.5% is a LOT!!!!!
Diddy is STUPID for paying him, and T-Pain is so childish about the whole shit. Fuck Both Of ‘Em!
Cant Wait For ’09: Eminem, Lupe, Jay-Z, 50, Dre (maybe?), Charles Hamilton, Clipse..and more!
diddy went from trendsetter to trend follower, i used to look up to dude! myspace.com/onlyonefatigue
0.5% is a lot for real
diddy never dies…that nigga is so shameless.
ya nigga is dumb…that was a real move by Diddy…
real niggas do real things…
Yes we know T-pain didnt invent da damn auto-turn..
but he made it HOT…i mean EXTRA HOT…..
NOBODY…and i mean NOBODY was using it like T-pain did…
Now that he got auto-tunes hot…people are now using it…and not even giving him credit for making it hot..
DIDDY…did a good thing….instead of using it…and try to be like other peoplr and say…”T-pain didnt influence me…Or i used auto-tunes before”
Now…its dumb for him to give him money…..he should of just asked…
but hay thats DIDDY…HE CAN DO SHIT LIKE THAT
THERE IS 100 POINTS ON ALBUM, THIS IS HOW EVERY ONE GETS PAID..EACH POINT IS ROUGHLY 7 TO 8 CENTS,
HALF A POINT IS 3 1/2 TO 4 CENTS
too bad diddy is such an annoying prick. it’s hard to respect him. but i can’t knock what he’s accomplished.
t-pain is such a little ho for thinking he created autotune
dis fat nigga still eatin
great job diddy! if only if you could have went back in time and paid jodeci, mary j blige, shyne, biggie, lox and countless others. not to mention actually promoting anyone other than HIMSELF like DANITY KANE or DAY26. matter of fact, black rob is back in prison for commiting robberies. if he only had “points” off of his music that he CREATED.
T-PAIN DID NOT MAKE THE AUTO TUNE HOT. HE MADE IT EXTRA GIMMICKY AND THEN EVERYONE SAW THAT IT WAS AN EASY WAY TO EAT. DONT WORRY, WHEN THE NEXT GIMMICK COMES OUT T-PAIN IS DONE.
I am about to make a very controversial statement right now. EVERYBODY NEEDS TO READ THIS. Some people think that T-Pain is angry at everybody using auto tune because they think he’s trying to say that he owns it. Well, ask yourself this question. Did T-Pain ever say he owned auto tune? No. He’s angry because when he first came out singing with it, everyone laughed at him, including record executives, and thought he wasn’t going to get anywhere. Not even as far as one song. Now, all of a sudden, everybody wants to use it. And guess what. Most of the people that are using it now are the same ones that were laughing at him. And the same record executives are trying to make song deals with him. DON’T YOU KNOW HOW THAT FEELS?! If I was him, I would be angry at everybody and wanting everybody to cough up some money, too. Plus, hardly nobody, especially in hip hop, wanted to use auto tune until T-Pain came out singing with it anyway. Think I’m lying? Then, how come nobody, especially in hip hop, used auto tune or any effect on their voices since Roger Troutman and Teddy Riley? Besides, most of the people that are using it now been out WAY longer than T-Pain and they haven’t put an effect on their voice a DAY in their careers. Matter of fact, haven’t even THOUGHT about using it. So, nobody can’t say nothing. Plus, everybody knows that T-Pain sounds the best with it(even though he doesn’t need it because his voice is BEAUTIFUL. Just listen to his album Epiphany. Matter of fact, ANY T-Pain album) because everybody else sounds TERRIBLE, you can barely understand them, and it’s obvious that they’re using it because of T-Pain. This is a controversial statement because it’s true. If it wasn’t, then, everybody wouldn’t be using it like they do. And somebody needs to tell these dumb rappers that AUTO TUNE IS NOT FOR THEM AT ALL. AUTO TUNE IS MADE FOR SINGERS ONLY. When a rapper uses auto tune, they sound more terrible than a person who can’t sing. Matter of fact, auto tune isn’t even for every singer because even all singers, except T-Pain, sounds terrible. And people, especially in hip hop, needs to wake up and realize that AUTO TUNE IS NOT FOR EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why is it so hard for people to understand that? People also need to remember that you even need to know how to sing and harmonize your vocals even to use auto tune or any other effect for it to even sound right. That’s why T-Pain sounds so good using it because he can sing and why everyone else sounds terrible because they can’t sing and don’t know how to work it. Why don’t everybody, especially in hip hop, just go back to their own style? Nobody wants to hear millions of other talented and creative artists with the same style. That would make sales drop, especially in hip hop. I’m putting hip hop on front because they’re the main ones who are using auto tune right now.
