T-Pain: The F—k Did I Do?!
One artist who was known for using heavy auto-tune at the time was Nappy Boy's T-Pain.
The short-lived beef started when Jay dropped his Auto-Tune diss, 2009: 'D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune).' Though he claimed the single wasn't an attack against T-Pain for utilizing the vocal effect, Pain took offense to the record.
In 2009, Hov was declaring the "Death of Auto-Tune" on his brand-new single. But when he took the stage to perform it, Mr. Auto-Tune himself, T-Pain, came out of nowhere and stood right at Jay's side. It was a move that confused the hell out of everybody, but made for a memorable performance. You can see it below.
