T-Pain Says RevolveR is Done, But He's Not Releasing It… Yet

While I admire T-Pain's stance and how his decision to withhold new music can be viewed as a call to action for music fans, I think he better not hold his breath, as the rapper said that he will not release his new album, RevolveR, until the state of album sales improves. Since record sales have been in the shitter with the onset of downloading and people getting (and expecting) their music for free, T-Pain and his fans might be waiting a long, long time. The auto-tune user told MTV News, "I got the mastered version of my album in my car right now. But I'm not bringing my album out until these artists start selling records again, 'cause ain't nobody selling records unless you Susan Boyle. I'm not doing nothing. I'm not bringing out no album, not dropping no more new singles until people start selling records again, and that's the approach I think everybody should take unless you Susan Boyle or Miley Cyrus."
Do you think this is a futile attempt? Or is T sparking a revolution? Are you a pissed off T-Pain fan clamoring for new music? Watch, the album will leak online somehow, some way, and he'll be forced to release a physical product to combat the theft of his tunes!
