Monotone - T-Pain (Music Video)

Monotone – T-Pain (Music Video)

Who knew T-Pain was still capable of a fire ass rap verse? Well, T-Pain apparently. Monotone is the king of auto-tune’s latest addition and surprisingly enough, there is no auto-tune. Instead, we hear Pain as we haven’t heard him in years: angry as hell, apparently doing his best Control verse-impression. In all seriousness though, this is a song everyone in the Hip Hop community should take a…

How To Make a Hit Pop Song – Brett Domino (Comedy)

LOL! This has got to be the funniest thing I have ever seen. He totally reveals the Top 40 pop music industry for what it is… basic ass music. As a dude that’s been attempting to record in music studios since the age of 16 (even managing to get signed to a few), trust me when I say this is beyond accurate.

Hardcore trap and rap fans: UNITE! The legendary UGK-creator that is Bun B has finally done a trap song, featuring none other than electronic mastermind MiMOSA.
