Faheem Rasheed Najm (born September 30, 1984), better known by his stage name T-Pain, is an American rapper, singer-songwriter, and record producer. His debut album, Rappa Ternt Sanga, was released in 2005. In 2007, T-Pain released his second album, Epiphany, which reached number one on the US Billboard 200 chart. His third album, Thr33 Ringz, was released in 2008. The albums included a string of hit singles, including “I’m Sprung”, “I’m ‘n Luv (Wit a Stripper)”, “Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin’)”, “Bartender”, “Can’t Believe It”, and “5 O’Clock”. T-Pain has earned two Grammy Awards, alongside artists Kanye West and Jamie Foxx respectively.
T-Pain is the founder of the record label imprint Nappy Boy Entertainment, established in 2005. Throughout his career as a singer, T-Pain popularized the creative use of the Auto-Tune pitch correction effect, used with extreme parameter settings to create distinctive vocal sounds. From 2006 to 2010, T-Pain was featured on more than 50 chart topping singles. His most successful feature to date was on Flo Rida’s debut single “Low”, which has since been certified 6x platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
Najm was born and raised in Tallahassee, Florida. His stage name is short for “Tallahassee Pain”, and was chosen because of the hardships he experienced while living there. Najm was brought up in a Muslim household, but he has expressed his lack of interest in the concept of religion. At just three years old he got his first taste of the music business when a friend of the family, gospel jazz artist/producer Ben Tankard, allowed him to spend time and “twist the knobs” at his recording studio. At age ten, Najm turned his bedroom into a music studio, using a keyboard, a beat machine and a four-track recorder.
