Commercially, “Mr King of Auto Tune” Tallahassee’s T Pain is known for the hits. Since his 1st mainstream single “I’m Sprung” released in 2005, following up with songs such as I’m In love with a Stripper, Bartender, and his latest Up Down record. His track record has been outstanding! From featuring your favorite songs from almost everyone in the industry taking them to number 1 status to releasing projects on his own; T- Pain’s latest project was in 2015 with his mixtape “The Iron Way” hosted by Atlanta’s own DJ Drama and Trendsetters. Despite another release earlier this year, a collaboration project with fellow emcee Lil Wayne called T-Wayne that was supposed to come out in 2009. This album Oblivion is his last album under the convict/R.C.A imprint.
About the project
Listening to this album in its entirety, I have to say sonically it sounds amazing! Every track has reply value and you can play the album from beginning to end with no problem. Yes, it sounds like a T Pain album should sound like; full of auto tune and great songs. What song these days doesn’t have Auto tune? Everyone has adopted his sound but they can’t make a song like him.
One song that stood out to me on this album is a song titled “Second Chance”. My take on the record is that this is a personal song that sets the tone for the album. I believe anyone could relate to this song for it talks about life in general and how you should never back down from your trials. Although I feel it’s speaking upon his life’s past, I believe he’s setting a message that everyone deserves a second chance in this crazy world.
