Flavor In The Street

Hello World! Flavor In The Street was something I wanted to do, because I felt I had grown since my previous websites. I feel like I was seeing blogging from a different perspective. At one time, I saw this as more of something I did for fun, and I still continue to see blogging as this, but I also have grown a passion for it. I'm getting a platform, where I get to fully express my views on topics in music. I feel like my opinion is rarely heard, and I want to be viewed as the voice of my generation soon. We never get a platform to talk, and it's now just the beginning. 

The idea of Flavor In The Street was just to restart my brand. I had gotten the idea of the title from one of my favorite shows, "Living Single" along with the slang, 'Word On The Street.' As many of you know, Khadijah James had owned a magazine company titled, "Flavor." I got the idea by combining the two, which later birthed 'Flavor In The Street.'

I'm quite a hard-working kid. I manage to keep my grades together, while running this blog. I've never quite looked into adding more writers to help grow the brand, but of course I'm open to trying new ideas. I plan to adventure quite a lot when I get older, and my taste in music varies. 

T-Pain, Why Are You Using Autotune: T-Pain Performs His Hits Without Autotune [Sounds Good!]

Ever been curious to know what T-Pain sounds like without autotune? Well, I must say he has a beautiful voice. T-Pain does know that most of the time when artist use autotune, it's because they can't sing. This guy has pure talent. Why would he want to use autotune with a voice like that? I don't know if I'm really amazed, because I've never heard him without autotune, or because he has a great voice. I see him in a lane similar to Trey Songz and Jaime Foxx, without autotune. T-Pain did a little mini show at NPR's Tiny Desk Concert Series. The Miami-based artist performed his strip-club ballads, "I'm Sprung," "I'm N Luv (Wit a Stripper)," and Buy U a Drink (Shawty Snappin')." If I would've known T-Pain had a voice like this, I would've respected him as an artist years ago. I remember being around the age 8, jamming to one of his songs. I believe the song was called, "Can't Believe It" featuring Lil Wayne. I honestly don't think it was the song I liked. It was mainly the visual, because I thought T-Pain was really silly, with the crazy hat on his head, and.. that was about it, but anyway..(Flashback Saturday) This guy's voice is amazing. If T-Pain ever plans on doing a show like this again, count me in! I've also noticed the 29 year old artist has a little sense of humor. He talked to the audience about how he was a little nervous performing for the first time without autotune or any effects, and how it felt so weird. Now, that I've actually heard his voice, I want him to do just one R&B album. He has the voice to do it, and it would really expand his branch as an artist. Oh, let me just shut up... Watch the performance below, and see what I mean than:

Not one minute did I doze off watching this performance. Once again, I'm really impressed.
