T-Pain Flips The Twitch.

Everyone knows that celebrities at the end of the day, are just regular people like us. Many stars have been known to voice their love for dabbling in video games from ‘Dungeons and Dragons’ to World of Warcraft. Now we KNOW we’re late to the game here, (no pun intended) but upon first hear of rapper T-Pain joining “Twitch” the video game streaming service, where you can WATCH players play the game, along with the players themselves, we knew we had to take a look. It’s one thing to hear about your favorite rapper or singer playing your favorite video game, but to see them in FULL spectacle during their introduction must be a treat. That being said, T-Pain has to hold the title for THE MOST fantastic Twitch intro in Hip Hop history, and it true Twitch fashion, the whole world can see it. Now we know this occurred a little over a year ago when Covid lockdown was in full effect, but it’s spectacular enough to share never the less.

T-Pain Over/Under

Watch this interview above with T-Pain as he rates Jeb Bush, ghosts, Helen Mirren, Daffy Duck and Febreeze as overrated or underrated.

Bigger Than Pain.


‘Bigger Than Pain’ follows the career of T-Pain from the UK leg of his 2014 “I Am T-Pain” concert tour to his creative life off stage and his use of Auto-Tune. It also reveals how the ambitious 30 year old with two Grammy Awards and over 50 top ten singles under his belt navigates the triumphs and pitfalls of his successful career.


E-40 ft. T-Pain, B.O.B., & Kid Ink – Red Cup.


Its been a little while since E-40 has earned himself a big mainstream radio hit. In fact, the rapper hasn’t appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 since “U And Dat” hit the top 15 back 2006.  Now, it appears, 40 is reaching for another smash. Recruiting former “U And Dat” collaborator T-Pain as well as Kid Ink and B.o.B., the Bay Area legend seamlessly transitions his signature West Coast drawl into a song that wouldn’t sound out of place next to Ink’s own “Main Chick” at the top of the hip-hop charts. The instrumental comes courtesy of Kristo of Drop City Yacht Club fame.  “Red Cup” is the first single off of 40’s upcoming four-album-set Sharp On All 4 Corners (1, 2, 3 & 4). If released before the year is out, the rapper will have released 17 albums in 5 years, undoubtedly some kind of world record.  Take a listen to the newest track to take over the coming radio airwaves below.

How Did T-Pain Discover AutoTune?

TPain_InstagramT-Pain has throughout history been both praised and vilified for bringing auto-tune back to the forefront of music conversations all across the Hip Hop world.  Recently Teddy Pendergrass sat down with Juan Epstein of Hot 97 to talk about how he found his most distinguished musical tool.

Bow Wow ft. T Pain – Better.

T-Pain – Who Want It.

T Pain has been a hit maker for well over half a decade now, but his latest album ‘Revolver’ has been making waves since before it even dropped.  Having taken a listen to the entire album just this morning, I was quite impressed (and if your reading this Mr. Penderass… I bought it.)  Take a look at his newest video featuring Severe Da Young Drack, titled “Who Want It”.  Check the method.


T-Pain ft. Lil Wayne – Bang Bang Pow Pow.

T-Pain grabs a verse from Lil Wayne for this T-Minus produced-track titled “Bang Bang Pow Pow” that will appear on Pain‘s rEVOLVEr album, dropping on December 6th. You can listen and download the T-Wayne collabo above.  Click the pic to heck it out.

T-Pain ft. Dawn Richard – Fantasy.

I’ve been a T-Pain fan for quite some time, from his music, to his sense of humor, down to his iPhone app, I just appreciate the man’s work.  His new album Revolver has been pushed back time and time again, but since singles from the anticipated CD have begun to drop, it’s very clear that Mr. Pender-ass is taking his music in a new direction.  Check the video for his latest single featuring Dawn Richard titled ‘Fantasy’.

T-Pain ft. Lily Allen & Wiz Khalifa – 5 O’Clock (Official Video).

Former Auto-Tune maestro T-Pain returns with a mid-tempo groove and wanders the streets alone in the music video for “5 O’clock,” the first single off his upcoming album “RevolveR” which features Wiz Khalifa and Lily Allen.  The video features an emotional T-Pain strolling the late night streets solo, looking like he’s about to cry, and struggling to get in contact with his music video girlfriend/booty call, Lily Allen. Allen herself looks distraught and worried about her R&B boo, texting T-Pain and glumly singing her sampled vocals as she waits on her love. Khalifa makes a guest appearance, with a confident, sexual verse that shows no qualms about showing up at your girlfriend’s place at 5 AM.

T-Pain, Akon, Busta Rhymes – Jungle Booty.

There are quite a few discussions per week between my friends and I that concern hilarious things that rappers, actors and sports stars do or say, but last night I was crying with laughter.  One of my favorite new songs on the web by T-Pain, Akon, and Busta Rhymes happened to cause a stir with one of my homeboys.  (Duckworth of Tokyo 24).  He was a bit puzzled by the fact that someone could actually enjoy a song titled “Jungle Booty”, however, after the first minute of listening to the track, he was quite understanding.  Despite the odd title, the song has a solid club-aimed beat, and 3 of the best musicians in the hip hop game to date on it… so how could it not be good?  Click the pic to take a listen.

‘Welcome To My Hood’ – Official Remix Video.

During the Lil Wayne ‘I Am Still Music’ concert I attended on Easter, Weezy stopped the show and told the crowd to throw their hands up if they were raised in the hood, and I had to keep it real, be honest, and keep quiet… until my assistant started screaming, (at which point I had to break my silence tell her to shut up, because she wasn’t raised in the hood either).  But regardless of my upbringing, I still thoroughly enjoy DJ Khaled’s song ‘Welcome To My Hood”, and hearing his fully loaded remix is dope, but the video is even doper, check the method below.

Trina ft. T Pain – Ghetto.

Click the pic to take a listen.

So over the course of the weekend, caught word of Trina making waves in the music industry again.  I know that artists don’t ever go away until they die, (And even after death Pac managed to put out more albums than Drake), but her collaborating with T-Pain on this one seems to be the reason people are a-buzz about the track.  The whole song is like the opposite of the ‘Blue Collar Comedy’ tour, so if any of the things Trina lists sound like you… You may be ghetto.  But regardless of the song content, I personally like the song, and I’m also a huge T-Pain fan, so click the pic to take a listen to “Ghetto”.

DJ Khaled ft. Plies, Rick Ross, T Pain, and Lil Wayne – Welcome To My Hood.

Click the pic to watch the video.

I was watching a program on the Sundance Channel titled “Brick City” which is mini series short about Newark, New Jersey, it’s mayor, and its citizens.  They discuss issues like violent crime reduction, gangs, and the people who protect the city.  During a commercial I got a text that said the “Welcome To My Hood” video dropped by DJ Khaled, Plies, Rick Ross, T Pain, and Lil Wayne, and I found it quite fitting.  Now lets keep in mind, by no means is Newark my hood, I’m South Plainfield all day.  But I’m a strong supporter of anything Jersey (besides the ‘Shore’), so I had to mention the EWR.  Below is the behind the scenes video for the shoot of “Welcome To My Hood” produced by T Pain’s team.  But to see the finished product, click the pic above for the official video.

T-Pain Ft. Rick Ross – Rap Song

The man “Teddy Pender-Ass” is back at it again along with Rick Ross on their single “Rap Song”. The track is essentially all about making love to a rap song. The concept wouldn’t be that unique if it weren’t for Pain’s clever method of citing other popular rap tracks from dozens of other artists throughout the song and chorus. The video itself is also quite unique, taking a style of 3D moving pictures to comprise a club scene. There are no actual moving people in the video, just a one-shot fly by of different things taking place emphasising the songs lyrical content. I also had trouble counting the amount of cameos in the video, from Bow Wow, Mr. Fab, DJ Khaled, Flo Rida, and even a model who’s been featured on this Blog once before. So all in all T-Pain proves he can still produce an original video for a song that I personally have been listening to since I got a hold of it months ago. Check the method below, and please excuse the watermark from the folks who got their mitts on it before it hit youtube.


T-Pain ft. Busta Rhymes – Dance With Me

T-Pain has done it again.  ‘Teddy Pender-ass’ and ‘Bussa Bus’ have collaborated to create the club relaxer “Dance With Me”.  Most will say its reminiscent of “Chopped & Screwed” or “Can’t Believe It”, but to me personally the beat from the snippet reminds me of a Tokyo 24 track for the ladies.  Click the pic to download.

Zoosk Girl?

Click the pic to download

I know what you’re thinking; what the hell is a Zoosk Girl? I’ll be honest, I’ve listened to Flo-Rida’s new single for the last twenty minutes straight and I still have no idea. Even more confusingly, I can’t 100 percent figure out if Flo and guest artist T-Pain think being a Zoosk girl is a good thing or not (although it seems like they do…right?). Still, a track like this isn’t made to be analyzed. Like most of Flo’s work, it’s meant to stick in your head for hours, and by that measure it succeeds. The light, bouncing beat comes to us courtesy of J Rock, while Pain delivers yet another catchy hook and Flo, well, flows capably over the quickly moving beat. My advice? Don’t worry about what it means; just shut off your brain and enjoy. For more potentially mystifying hip-pop be sure to keep an eye out for Flo-Rida’s upcoming third studio album The Only One, which has yet to be granted a solid release date.

All I Do Is Win…

Nappy Boy online recently released a behind-the-scenes look at the filming of the video for new the DJ Khaled track featuring T-Pain, Ludacris, Snoop Dogg, and Rick Ross.  “All I Do Is Win” is the first single off Khaled’s recently released “Victory” album.

Freaknik Came and Went.

Freaknik as some of us may remember, was the massive party held in ATL during spring break at which students from all the black universities were in attendance. Now, Freaknik has a different meaning to those of us tuned into Adult Swim on the night of March 7th. Freakink was “resurected” in the 1 hour cartoon special ‘Freaknik: The Musical’ staring the voices of T-Pain, Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, DJ Drama, Lil Jon, and many, many more. You can check it out here. But hurry, it expires on March 23rd 2010.
