Just days after a video of T-Pain singing without Auto-Tune went viral, he’s back with the powerful and well-crafted song ‘Stoicville.’ The rappa-ternt-sanga puts the harmonizing aside and spews heartfelt raps.
“Whoever thought a youngin’ from a city full of rattle snakes, was ever gon’ make it out the grass patch / Seven heels had me looking for a better deal, a hood n—-, I couldn’t count on the Nasdaq / They was picking on me and wouldn’t give me my hat back / Now I got enough hats to give away, it’s better days, I refuse to have flashbacks,” he spits over a stripped-down beat with no drums.
What’s so good about this particular song is the fact that the Florida native leaves posturing to the side and reveals a much more vulnerable side, which makes for an interesting listen.
But it just isn’t vulnerability T-Pain is showcasing; he’s also displaying some pretty incredible lyricism. “How many n—-s told me I was gonna fail, ’cause I got a list of n—-s that could go to hell / They feel like I owe them something ’cause they know me well / Calling me a sellout cause I won’t come back and smoke an L,” he rhymes.
Pain’s album, ‘Stoicville: The Phoenix,’ was set to drop this year, but it was recently pushed back. Hopefully, we’ll be able to rock to the project in the early part of next year.
