Rapper turned singer, T-Pain is back with another classic Hip Hop album, THR33 RINGZ, which hits stores today – November 11th. The vocoder crooner is back with more hits and music galore on his third album, with featured guests Ciara, Kanye West, DJ Khaled, Chris Brown, Lil’ Wayne, Musiq Soulchild, T.I. and Ludacris. I personally didn’t expect a solid album from T-Pain just using an auto-tuner but it works with him.
I feel no one can use the vocoder or vocalizer like him. With tracks like “Blowing Up“ featuring Ciara, “Therapy” featuring Kanye West, “It Ain’t Me“ featuring T.I. and Akon, it’s possible that any track on the album is potentially a hit single. Aside from his singles, “Can’t Believe It“ featuring Lil’ Wayne, “Chopped & Skrewed“ featuring Ludacris, and “Freeze“ featuring Chris Brown, you can smoothly flow into the album with a nice transition. You can truly listen to each song on the album without a skip besides the skits.
Although T-Pain collaborated with an A-list squad of artists, you should still get the T-Pain solo elements very well. On a track, “Karaoke“ featuring DJ Khaled, he disses everyone with the exception of Kanye West and Lil’ Wayne for using the auto-tune vocoder. He also lists the features of famous celebrity artists’ that he’d like in his “Superstar Lady“.
T-Pain delivered the hits on his own album, which shouldn’t come as much of a surprising seeing as he’s produced tons of hit-singles for many other artists. The rings on this album glimmer with gaudiness, but in a good way. Make sure you pick up and support the album THR33 RINGZ.
