T-Pain is the stage name of Faheem Rasheed Najm, who is a rap star, singer, and song writer, as well as producer.  T-Pain is perhaps most widely known as having been the one to popularize the use of auto tune.

This means rather than simply improve someone’s voice, create deliberate audio effects, as heard done by artists such as Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, and Lil Wayne.

T-Pain’s albums include Rappa Ternt Sanga, Epiphany, and Three Ringz, and some of his hit songs include “I’m Sprung”, “Bartender”, “Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin’)”, and @I’m ‘n Luv (Wit a Stripper)”. T-Pain has been nominated for 12 Grammys and won twice.

He’s also appeared on over fifty hit singles, the most successful of which is Flo Rida’s “Low”.

In 2004, T-Pain became a member of a rap group called Nappy Headz and together they recorded a cover of the Akon song “Locked Up” called “I’m F*cked Up”. Akon was so impressed with that he offered them a record deal as well as mentorship.

T-Pain from there transitioned to traditional singing on his first album, which he called Rappa Ternt Sanga and which dropped in December of 2005. The album reached the 33rd slot on Billboard Magazine’s 200 chart. The RIAA eventually certified it a Gold selling album.

The album’s first single “I’m Sprung” was also a big hit, and got to the 8th slot in the Hot 100 and the 9th in Hot R&B Hip Hop. The second single, called “I’m in Luv (Wit a Stripper)” reached the 5th and 10th slots of those two charts, respectively. The third song, “Studio Luv”, didn’t chart at all.

T-Pain released his second album, Epiphany, in mid-2007. It hit the top spot on Billboard’s 200 in its very first week. Meanwhile, its first single, “Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin’)” hit the top spot on Hot 100 and Hot R&B Hip Hop, his first chart-topping single. The second, “Bartender” hit the 5th and 9th slots respectively.

The third single, “Church”, as with his previous third single, didn’t chart. He did however appear on a number of other artists’ songs such as R. Kelly’s “I’m a Flirt” remix, Bow Wow’s “Outta My System”, DJ Khalid’s “I’m So Hood”, Kanye West’s “Good Life”, Flo Rida’s “Low”, and Chris Brown’s “Kiss Kiss”.

“Good Life” ended up winning a Grammy Award for the best rap song of the year, as well as a Black Entertainment Television award for the best musical collaboration of the year.

By the end of 2008, T-Pain had released his next album, which was called Three Ringz, and he released under his own label, Nappy Boy Entertainment. It hit the 4th spot on Billboard’s 200. It was preceded by a mixtape called “Pr33 Ringz”.

Its singles were “Can’t Believe It”, which featured Lil Wayne, “Chopped ‘N’ Skrewed”, which featured Ludacris, and “Freeze”, which featured Chris Brown. All three single charted this time, although the latter two not as well as the first.

Throughout 2008, T-Pain did more rap cameos. They include 2 Pistols’ “She Got It”, Ciara’s “Go Girl”, Rick Ross’ “The Boss”, Ace Hood’s “Casth Flow”, Lil Mama’s “Shawty Got Loose”, Ludacris’ “One More Drink”, and DJ Khaled and Kanye West’s “Go Hard”.

He also formed a duo with Lil Wayne called T-Wayne, and put out a mixtape by the end of the year. T-Pain also did a collaboration with Taylor Swift called “Thug Story”, which satirized Taylor Swift’s famous song “Love Story”.

In 2009, he released an iPhone app with the name “I Am T-Pain” that allowed people to auto tune their own voices to sound like T-Pain music. He also put out a single called “Take Your Shirt Off”, which didn’t chart nearly as well as he’d hoped. He followed that up with “Reverse Cowgirl” in early 2010. It did better though not amazingly.

Soon afterwards, T-Pain appeared on the remake of “We Are the World”, which hit the second slot in Billboard’s Hot 100. March of that year saw him developing and starring in an animated musical for the Adult Swim block on Cartoon Network called Freaknik: The Musical.

Around that time he also dropped a mixtape called T-Pain Presents: Nappy Boy All Stars Vol. 1, featuring various music by people on his Nappy Boy label. Soon afterwards he also dropped another mixtape called prEVOLVEr. Then T-Pain’s film debut came out. It was called Lottery Ticket. In October 2010, he dropped “Rap Song”.

From there on he appeared on more singles such as DJ Khaled’s “All I Do Is Win”, Wisin & Yandel’s “Imaginate” and “No Dejemos Que Se Apague”, Bun B’s “Trillionaire”, Pitbull’s “Hey Baby (Drop It to the Floor)”, Wiz Khalifa’s “Black & Yellow”, as well as “Loving You No More”, and Nelly’s “Move That Body”.

In 2011, T-Pain was also on DJ Khaled’s “Welcome to My Hood”, DJ Benny Benassi’s “Electroman”, JRandall’s “Can’t Sleep”, and on albums like Take Care by Drake, Tha Carter IV by Lil Wayne, and All 6s and 7s by Tech N9ne.

T-Pain also released a T-Pain microphone toy that people could use to auto tune their voices. By the end of the year, he finally put out his fourth album, RevolveЯ.

In 2013, T-Pain dropped a greatest hits album called T-Pain Presents Happy Hour. In anticipation of a new album, he then dropped singles such as “Coming Home”, “Make That Sh*t Work”, and “Dan Bilzerian” with Lil Yachty. He also was a writer on Bruno Mars’ “Straight Up & Down” from his 24K Magic album.

T-Pain then finally reunited and put out their eponymous album. In 2017, T-Pain rapped with Italian rap artists Fedez and J-Ax on “Senza pagare”. Finally, T-Pain’s fifth album came out. It was called Oblivion.

In 2018, he began hosting T-Pain’s School of Business, a Fuse network documentary show that has T-Pain travelling across the country of the US in order to meet with entrepreneurs.

In February 2019, T-Pain competed in the reality television music show The Masked Singer and was revealed to be the eponymous masked singer of the title. That same day, he surprised dropped an album called 1UP.

T-Pain has also done some other acting. He appeared as Frylock in a live action installment of the Adult Swim cartoon show Aqua Teen Hunger Force before creating and starring in the aforementioned Freaknik: The Musical. He also played a liquor store attendant in Lottery Ticket.

He then did an episode of the popular show Epic Rap Battles of History, playing legendary singer Stevie Wonder. T-Pain’s greatest impact on music overall is how he made auto tune not for pitch correction but to deliberately create a robotic effect in a singer’s voice popular in rap music.

He was partially inspired by Cher’s revolutionary use of it in her 1998 massive single “Believe” as well as Darkchild’s remix of JLo’s “If You Had My Love”. After using it liberally across his early albums, other hip hop and rap stars started using it, such as Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, Kanye West, the Black Eyed Peas, and P Diddy.

Jay-Z in 2009 actually responded to its proliferation in his song “D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune)”. He later clarified however that he hadn’t intended it as an attack on T-Pain himself, whose music he liked, but on how many people since then had jumped on the bandwagon and overdone the effect till it was no longer unique.

T-Pain himself admitted to loving Jay-Z’s song but also felt that a lot of the backlash from other people was more personal. To him auto tune was just a crucial part of his personal musical and artistic style and it was one he wasn’t going to give up just because it had gotten popular and been picked up by many other people.
