I heard that people sing raps to give the track pain
- Kanye is saying that rappers today sing more then they rap, which hurts their tracks. Exhibit A:.
These rappers also more commonly focus on emotional pain rather than traditional harder rap about drugs, money, and hoes.
- A reference to 808s & Heartbreak, his previous album, which he sang almost entirely, with the help of AutoTune.
Furthermore, rapper/singer T-Pain is known for his sing-song, heavily AutoTuned delivery. T–pain….track-pain. Get it?
It’s not uncommon for rappers to reference past albums in new ones. So Kanye might being saying he sang his whole last album and killed every track.
