This Is Not A Drill: T-Pain Is Releasing A Greatest Hits Album

Does the world really need a T-Pain best of? Don’t get me wrong, “I’m ‘n Luv (Wit A Stripper)” and “Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin’)” are modern classics but this could be a hard sell. RCA obviously thinks otherwise because they announced the November 4 release date of T-PAIN PRESENTS HAPPY HOUR:

Justin Bieber Hit The Studio With T-Pain

Between smoking weed and driving (allegedly) and smoking weed and flying, Justin Bieber managed to fit in some time for actual work (which, let’s be honest, also may have involved smoking weed).

T-Pain Thinks He Deserves More Credit For Influencing Kanye West

Kanye West’s 2008 album 808s & Heartbreak may not be the most loved release of his career, but it’s probably the most important. By dropping that sharp left turn at the height of his stardom, West freed himself to do whatever he wanted in its wake. After that, no sonic element was off limits for…

Timbaland, Lil Wayne, Missy Elliott & T-Pain Team Up For “The Party Anthem”: Listen

Timbaland assembled a dream team for his song “The Party Anthem,” so we’ll forgive him for dropping it a day after the partying (January 1). Timbo’s stomping beat of cymbal crashes and plinking pianos — plus T-Pain’s barking hook — makes for a pretty downcast club banger (unlike, say, “Everyday Birthday” from fellow super-producer Swizz

T-Pain Quits Auto-Tune On “Don’t You Quit”: Hear It

In May 2011, T-Pain released the 30-song mixtape prEVOLVEr. In the “We Will Rock You”-sampling track “Big Man,” T-Pain raps alongside a certain Tity Boi — the same College Park, Ga., rapper who now answers to 2 Chainz. T-Pain kept up with Tha Bizness; beat, while Tity Boi barely could. They sounded nothing alike.

The 10 Worst Album Covers Of 2011

Though our specialty is reviewing music, we’re often distracted from an artist’s tunes by their amazingly awful album cover.

T-Pain claims that he can back it, back it up in his video for single “Let Me Talk”, off his just-released LP Revolver.
