Last month, T-Pain recorded a Tiny Desk Concert for NPR, singing without Auto-Tune and generally showing the world that he has talents that go beyond the gimmick that made him famous. To that end, he’s also released a new single called “Stoicville,” a rapped-not-sung six-minute spleen-vent lament about fake friends and career disappointments that’ll serve as the title track and intro to his next album. It’s really good! Even if you don’t like T-Pain! Listen to it and watch that Tiny Desk Concert below.
Stoicville is coming sometime soon.
