The other day I had an interesting conversation that sort of “revolved” around T-Pain being a has-been and serving no relevance what so ever. In some respect, the Teddy Pain train has lost a chunk of it’s steam with Auto-Tune being “dead” and all, yet the idea of his relative career being six feet under was a bit of stretch. On any given Sunday, you can still catch the Nappy Boy helming a hook that will penetrate the Billboard charts and most of the material he really puts his heart into (see 2008’s Thr33 Ringz) gets ignored by the average crabby critic.
So while you’ve been snoozing, Pain was busy loading up on ammunition to slide in his six-shooter. Yes, his RevolveR album is still hitting shelves but not before he hits you with a series of warning shots with prEVOLVEr The Mixtape. For those of you who assume prancing around with Flo Rida or helping Ciara shake her ass is the extent of Teddy’s talents, you got bullet with your name on it aimed at your skull. The Ringleader Man is steering his circus to captivate music once again.
