T-Pain and Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs unlock the secrets of their production technique in a video clip at the DiddyTV YouTube channel. “I just really learned by hitting every button in here,” T-Pain said while sitting in front of his beat machine. “I mean, just pull up some blank sh** and you ain’t got nothin’ to lose. If you break the computer… just hit every button and see what this is, see what this do. Play something and fu** with all these sh**s, hit the loop button and it starts loopin and sh** and keep goin. See what the transition do and sh**, just everything. Just hit everything. Like touch this sh** and it don’t really do much but do it anyway.”
Video at YouTube has since been removed.
