T-Pain drops his return mixtape “Everything Must Go Vol. 1.”
“Everything Must Go Vol. 1” is T-Pain’s way of staging a clearance sale of all his loose ends, at least at first glance. Songs like “Dance All Night” see T-Pain revisit the blippy sounds of his first and second albums. With respect to vocal arrangements, T-Pain hasn’t lost a step. He still shows a willingness to rev his engine at short notice. The effect always for continuity when the beat reaches a standstill, and he doesn’t go at it alone. Ace Hood, Joe Budden, and Joey Bada$$ all make surprise appearances on the mixtape, the latter two on a song titled “That’s Me,” which serves to note that retirement can be repealed at any time.
