Since emerging in 2004, six-time GRAMMY Award-winning artist, producer, and songwriter T-Pain has not only changed the course of pop, hip-hop, and R&B, but has reshaped the fabric of the culture itself. T-Pain has sold over 50 million singles, accumulated billions of streams, racked up 10 iconic #1s on the Billboard Hot 100, and has sold out shows across multiple continents. The Tallahassee trailblazer’s influence transcends generations in music and more; he shines as a Twitch phenomenon and popular streamer, label head of his own independent Nappy Boy Entertainment, podcast host, expert drift driver, actor, and author.
T-Pain’s voice could be heard loud and clear as “All I Do Is Win” soundtracked President Barack Obama’s entry into the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, during what was then the most-watched NPR Tiny Desk Concert in the series’ history, and when he shocked audiences everywhere as the first winner of FOX’s smash hit show The Masked Singer. In June 2022, he hosted his first-ever Wiscansin Festival in Milwaukee, now an annual event acknowledged by the state of Wisconsin.
His Nappy Boy Gaming team is home to a diverse group of gamers including Big Cheese, Granny, Michael Lopriore, Cardboard Cowboy and Hert Life. Together they are taking over the Twitch airwaves. T-Pain builds his own gaming rigs and was among the first entertainers to consistently stream on Twitch since 2014.
He launched the Nappy Boy Radio Podcast in 2021, welcoming some amazing guests including Snoop Dogg, Tiffany Haddish, Chance The Rapper, Mike Tyson, Hannibal Buress, and more. Alongside co-hosts Vanessa Fraction and Party Pip, he is always looking for new ways to step up the production and present an innovative, new wave to podcasting.
Exhibiting a longstanding affinity for drifting, T-Pain created Nappy Boy Automotive as a way to build out his own drifting team and diversify motorsports, and even built his second drift car fully by himself during quarantine. Officially partnering with former Hoonigan and automotive influencer, Hertrech Eugene Jr., the organization plans to reshape the community with one simple rule – You’re Invited.
T-Pain is also an actor and author with his literary debut Can I Mix You a Drink? that hit the shelves in September 2021.
Taking his natural talents and combining them with his interests and passions, T-Pain is positioning Nappy Boy as the next big thing in entertainment and beyond.
