T-Pain

Rapper/Singer/Producer Known for his 808-heavy beats and masterful use of vocal effects like Auto-Tune, the Grammy-winning singer/songwriter is one of most club-friendly, influential R&B hitmakers of the last decade. With a string of gold and platinum singles to his credit—including “I’m in Luv (Wit a Stripper)” and “Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin’)”—T-Pain became the “collabo king,” appearing on hits by artists ranging from E-40 to Chris Brown. But the Tallahassee, Florida-native (born Faheem Rasheed Najm) will go down in history as the man who popularized Auto-Tune, and the inspiration for Jay-Z’s track “D.O.A.”
