“T-Pain’s cyborg cry, once an inescapable part of the pop landscape, has rarely sounded so refreshing. The Auto-Tune crooner guests on the latest track from the Lonely Island’s upcoming The Wack Album, “I Fucked My Aunt.” The joke of the song itself is that it’s whispery, LL Cool J-style slow-jam rap about, yup, fucking their aunt (pronounced both ways, for your pleasure). So replay value may be limited. But when T-Pain arrives around the two-minute mark for a free-flowing verse that shifts from tut-tutting the Lonely Island boys for fucking their aunts to acknowledging that T-Pain, too, fucked his aunt — at least depending on what your definition of “fucked” is, so long as that definition includes “fucking”? Well, damn. We didn’t see that in the Behind the Music.” – Spin.com
Normally a T-Pain mixtape would just wind up in the Junk Mail folder, but after accidently stumbling across a few random tracks of his, we pieced together that they were from a larger project of his called Stoic. Since nobody really wants to listen through a whole T-Pain mixtape, we’ve pulled out a few highlights for you below.
This is our second Clinton Sparks post today, catching up for lost time. In case you’re not too familiar with Clinton Sparks, here’s a few things you should know. Sparks is a Grammy-nominated producer for his work on Lady Gaga’s Born This Way album. He’s a multi-platinum producer/songwriter for other artists such as “Akon, Pitbull, Ludacris, Rick Ross, Tyrese, T-Pain, The Game and The Notorious B.I.G” (from Sparks’ SoundCloud). Sparks is also E! Entertainment’s music correspondent and a DJ/host on his #1 rated radio show SmashTime Radio. Not to mention his career as an artist. How could you not know about him? Here’s his latest release, “B!tch I Do It”:
“B!tch I Do It” is what you’d expect in a Clinton Sparks track. Its pop vocals and bright melody from “Bulletproof” paired with an upbeat tempo make for an uplifting and fun club song. Tyrese’s verse (from “Fireworkz”) sets it off nicely, but really “B!tch I Do It” seems more of a filler track to keep Sparks on our radars. His upcoming release “Watch You” featuring Pitbull is dropping in two weeks, and is looking like it should be a big hit–especially coming from this powerhouse club duo. Stay tuned for the release!
