It’s rare that a rapper is as well known for performing on other musicians’s songs as he is his own. Yet T-Pain has managed to do exactly that. The Florida-based rapper is featured on tracks for everyone from Snoop Dogg, R. Kelly and Lil Wayne to The Lonely Island. In the process, he’s cemented himself as this generation’s Nate Dogg, as the go-to voice for hooks—just ask Flo Rida, whose 2007 hit “Low” sold more than six million units thanks to T-Pain’s assistance. As for his solo material, he's is regarded as one of the first rappers to introduce auto-tune, and is armed with a hit-laden catalogue. With T-Pain putting the finishing touches on his fifth studio effort, Stoicville The Phoenix, don’t be surprised when this latest album full of catchy beats and rhythmic pop anthems flies up the charts.
