(Vocals, b. 1985)

T-Pain, real name Faheem Rasheed Najm is a US R&B and hip hop artist who came to prominence with his debut LP Rappa Ternt Sanga and its smash hit ‘I’m N Luv (Wit A Stripper)’ in 2005. Aged just 23, the Tallahassee, Florida, native scored a No. 1 album in 2007 with Epiphany, which produced a No. 1 hit single in ‘Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin’)’. Third release Thr33 Ringz was nominated for Best Contemporary R&B Album at the Grammys, proving T-Pain can mix his sometimes comedic mix of hip hop with critical respect.
