T-PAIN & USHER SQUASH AUTO-TUNE BEEF BY HUGGING IT OUT ON STAGE

T-Pain and Usher have seemed to finally move past their issues. On Sunday (November 21), the R&B legends appeared on stage together and squashed their beef at an after-party concert thrown by Dave Chappelle in Atlanta.
The event was in celebration of Chappelle’s new untitled documentary, which he showed fans in attendance last night along with performing a stand-up routine. Fans couldn’t bring their phones inside, but someone managed to film the moment between T-Pain and Usher embracing each other on the stage.
“I love you, bro,” T-Pain told Usher. “I’m telling you, we ain’t going through nothing, bro. We ain’t going through a god damn thing. It’s all love. In a time when we’re divided the most, we need to be together the most. I love you, bro. I’m never not gonna love you, bro, trust me.”
The moment comes after T-Pain revealed in Netflix’s This Is Pop docuseries that Usher put him in a deep depression after he said the “Buy You A Drank” singer ruined music with Auto-Tune in June.
“He was like, ‘Yeah man you really fucked up music for real singers,’” T-Pain said. “I was like, ‘What did I do? I came out and I used Auto-Tune.’ He was like, ‘Yeah, you fucked it up.’ I’m like, ‘But I used it, I didn’t tell everybody else to start using it.’”
Usher responded to the claims in an interview with Billboard in August when he mentioned he spoke to T-Pain and was on good terms, but that allegedly didn’t happen. Last week, T-Pain visited a NYC radio station and revealed Usher never spoke to him about fixing their issues.
“I texted him and I was like, ‘Yo, I know you saw what happened. I know you saw the interview.’ ‘Cause I told his A&R about the interview years ago because he was asking me to work with Usher,” T-Pain said. “So I hit Usher after the interview came out, and I’m like, ‘I’m sure
you saw what happened. That was the truth. That’s what happened, you definitely said that.’ I remember that whole day.”
He added, “Then all he texted me back was, ‘Let’s not text, let’s talk.’ And I was like, ‘Cool, hit me up.’ And I never heard from him, he never called me. I feel like I initiated the contact.”
