‘Bigger Than Pain’ follows the career of T-Pain from the UK leg of his 2014 “I Am T-Pain” concert tour to his creative life off stage and his use of Auto-Tune. It also reveals how the ambitious 30 year old with two Grammy Awards and over 50 top ten singles under his belt navigates the triumphs and pitfalls of his successful career.

Snoop Dogg – “Wet”

I have an adverse opinion of autotune and other voice altering effects in music (especially since I’m gaining ground as an experienced studio engineer).  But when I heard Snoop’s new single “Wet”, I was thoroughly impressed by the sound he was able to achieve when he stepped out of the box.  The beat is quite simple, (somewhat reminiscent of “Wait” by the Ying Yang Twins, but a more relaxed vibe), and is complimented by a slower style of rap by Snoop that still has the ability to get the right crowd in the club moving.  Click the pic to take a listen, and let me know what you think.

Cassidy ft. Nalia Boss – She’s Addicted

I’m not sure if this is Cassidy the Problem, or Cassidy the Hustler who’s responsible for this newest love song collab, but in my personal opinion it doesn’t matter.  Even though the subject matter is very radio friendly, Cassidy still kills his verses with lyrical percision, and still proves he’s way under-rated in the game.  Click the pic to listne.  (Courtesy of HHG.com.)

Lloyd to joint the Interscope roster.


Lloyd recently confirmed that he would be joining Interscope records for the release of his new album.  While most people expected him to sign with Cash Money-Young Money, the 24 year old singer stated that C.M.Y.M.’s proximity to Motown Records was the reason he did not.  Lloyd’s last 2 albums produced under the Motown label were in his opinion, underdistributed.

“I don’t feel the need to rush to release an album. It’ll be out later this year. I got a couple of title options, but I’m not 100 percent sure yet, I love the way Interscope gets down. I love the way Jimmy [Iovine, label head] gets down. I’ve always had a good working relationship with Polow [da Don, producer]. Having that creative partner is something I wanted to have, since the very beginning, to have that one creative partner. Mike [Jackson] had it with Quincy [Jones], Janet [Jackson] had it with Jimmy [Jam] and Terry [Lewis]. Justin has it with Timbaland. I feel that me and Polow have something special. I’m really looking forward to that. I also admire Jimmy [Iovine] as a producer. He loves producers. He’s got Will.I.Am, DR, Dre, Polow, the Neptunes, Timbaland. That’s what he does. I’m looking forward to it.”

Lloyd recently released a new single with samples from Ray Charles ‘Unchain My Hear’, and features a verse from Mystikal (…yeah, I know).   After the release of the single, and question as to his new album, Lloyd stated,  “This year I’m really focused on a classic album and staying in the public eye with more guest features. I have a few surprise collaborations coming. In the past two months I’ve recorded some really surprising features that will shake up the game a little bit.”
