t pain has made a lot of money , and opened the door to mankig music for ringtones. I hope he is really getting paid , as he revolutionized the music business. but instead of t pain being teddy riley , i think we need to look at sly and the family stone / roger troutman , from the zapp band , afterall the voice machine aparatus was made popular in dance r/b the 80 s early 90 s ( this is the most recent and current of the talk box which made a lasting impression ) famous song MORE BOUNCE TO THE OUNCE . He might be talentless , but smart , he knew that voice box was the ticket .Beyonce models herself on tina turner and ALSO aishwarya rai.
