If you're a millennial, there's no way you don't remember exactly where you were the first time you heard "I'm Sprung." We fell in love with T-Pain as a generation, and it only got more serious as he continued to slay on "I'm N Luv (Wit a Stripper)," "Bartender," "Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin')," "Low" and the rest.

Honestly, any future bass or lo-fi R&B producer who tries to act like T-Pain's catalog didn't directly inspire their voice is a liar, but it seems most are willing to pay homage. T-Pain just tweeted an open call for future bass producers, and electronic dance music twitter is going bonkers.

Everyone and their mom is out here responding to T-Pain, trying to get a coveted spot on the Tallahassee boy's next album. Would TroyBoi's London trap take be the move? Should Giraffage get the chance to paint T-Pain in candy colors? Maybe wonder-boy Whethan is up next? It's anyone's game, and T-Pain has his pick of the damn litter. Just look at these producers crawl over one another for a shot. It sounds like T-Pain's got his eye on fellow Florida boy DJ Nitti Gritti, but he admits "there's room for everybody."

Let the thirsty-ass producer hunger games begin.
