Do Dat Shit
It's been a minute since we've heard from T-Pain. The singer had a 'comeback' of sorts in 2015, not that he had left the music scene, but his career was reinvigorated, thanks to his Gangtsa Grillz mixtape and that infamous Tiny Desk performance for NPR, which reminded basically everyone that, hey, T-Pain can sing.
T-Pain Feat. Plies
Of course T-Pain is the first (but definitely not the last) person to open a song with a "Netflix and chill' joke. The singer's new record "Or Wut" is a classic slow jam, built off of a simple guitar-led chord progression. Pain keeps it pretty light on the auto-tune, and gets Plies to come through for a typically filthy verse.
Whatever I Want
Classixx Feat. T-Pain
While we wait on T-Pain's first album since 2011, the much-anticipated Stoicville: The Phoenix, the rappa-ternt-sanga has popped up on an unexpected collab with Classixx, the L.A. production duo usually known for Italo disco-inspired electronic jams. "Whatever I Want" was premiered today by Zane Lowe on Beats 1 radio, and the track also happens to feature backing vocals from the Los Angeles Children's Choir.
DJ Montay & DJ Jelly Feat. The-Dream, T-Pain & Twista
DJ Montay and DJ Jelly have curated an all-star lineup for a triumphant new R&B anthem, "6 Minutes." The title refers to the amount of time that it takes each one of these artists to get your girl into the bedroom. The seemingly random increment of time does not relate to the song's length, 4 minutes and 25 seconds.
Roof On Fye
T-Pain continues to prove that he's nowhere close to hanging up the mic (or the auto-tune). He's made a big comeback in 2015, and his newest, "Roof on Fye," is one of the best he's dropped this year.
I Can Be Your Stripper
Shanell Feat. T-Pain
Shanell has been signed to Young Money forever, and the imprint's inevitable split from Cash Money will probably be a boon to her career. Until Lil Wayne and Birdman duke it out in court, Shanell proceeds as usual by dropping a remix to her recent single "I Can Be Your Stripper," this time bringing in T-Pain to bless the track with his inimitable soaring auto-tune.
Make That Shit Work
T-Pain Feat. Juicy J
T-Pain built up quite a bit of excitement with his recent Gangsta Grillz mixtape The Iron Way (you can grab the no DJ version here if you need it), and he returns today with a new single off his fifth studio album Stoicville: The Phoenix. T-Pain has already released a few singles off the long-awaited album in the past, so it's unclear if those are being sidestepped as this is being dubbed the official first single.
Lil Jon Feat. T-Pain, Problem & Snoop Dogg
Lil Jon returned in a huge way last summer when he supplied the vocals to one of the year's biggest hits (and mantras), "Turn Down For What". Looks like the crunk king might be ready to shit down yet another summer, unleashing his new crew track, "Cutie Pie" today, in which he seamlessly melds pop-rap heroes from different eras into a slippery funk ballad.
Mind Right (Remix)
TK N Cash Feat. B.o.B, T-Pain & T.I.
TK N Cash's "Mind Right" has been a buzzing party track in ATL since the end of last year, and it continues to pick up speed with a succession of hot remixes. First, T.I. laid a freestyle over the track, then B.o.B. gave it the remix duties. Now, those guys have joined forces and another boss man, T-Pain, has joined the lineup for the most official "Mind Right" remix yet.
Kill These Niggas
T-Pain just dropped a No DJ version of his epic mixtape The Iron Way, and that's cause for celebration. The No DJ version of "Kill These Niggas," for example, is a catchy track that's just an all-around better listening experience without DJ Drama chirping in the middle of T-Pain's verse.
T-Pain Feat. Yo Gotti & Snootie Wild
T-Pain just dropped off his highly anticipated mixtape, The Iron Way, and he's picking up right where he left off. With that being said, there are plenty of sides to Pain, the slow-jam lady killer, the strip club obsessive, and the street rap hook king. "Represent" finds him filling the last of those roles, recalling his many iconic hooks on DJ Khaled's singles.
Sun Goes Down
T-Pain Feat. Audio Push
T-Pain knows how to get fans pumped for a mixtape release. The auto-tune god has been releasing a steady stream of new records leading up to his new project, The Iron Way, which drops on Friday, and anticipation for the project is now at an all-time high.
Let Your Hair Down
T-Pain Feat. The-Dream & Vantrease
T-Pain and The-Dream have a whole lot in common. Stacked harmonies, futuristic R&B sounds, and early experimentation with synthesized vocal effects can be found throughout both artists' catalogs, with the two singers making similar songwriting innovations over the course of the 00s.
T-Pain is back in a big way. Last night, the rappa ternt sanga (who's now doin' it all) performed a stunning total of 42 songs at The Fader's SXSW showcase, which coincided nicely with the leak of a new song with OG Maco.
Wait A Minute
T-Pain Feat. OG Maco
While we patiently await for T-Pain’s next album, Stoicville: The Phoenix, to arrive (hopefully later this year), the Florida crooner will treat fans to a new DJ Drama-hosted mixtape to hold them over called The Iron Way.
Did It Anyway
T-Pain is ready to dominate the music world once again, and he's starting things off by releasing a mixtape through DJ Drama's iconic Gangsta Grillz series. Judging by what we've heard from The Iron Way so far, it seems as though the rappa turnt sanga is leaning toward the former portion of his title, as his new record, "Did It Anyway," finds him carrying a melody throughout the C.P. Dubb-produced track, but delivering it with an assured rap swagger.
Disa My Ting
T-Pain Feat. Kardinal Offishall
Before there was The Six, there was the T-Dot, and Drake's new accent was prevalent in it. Kardinall Ofishall, who released the definitive T-Dot anthem, "Bacardi Slang" (sorry, Shawn Desman) almost always delivered his raps with a Jamaican inflection, and he continues that tradition on T-Pain's new track, "Disa My Ting".
Lean On Me
Trina Feat. Young Ca$h & T-Pain
After warning us earlier, Trina decides to kick start the weekend by releasing this brand new track called “Lean On Me” featuring T-Pain and Young Cash.
Tech N9ne Feat. Lil Wayne, T-Pain & Krizz Kaliko
I was feeling some Tech N9ne this morning so decided to return to his 2011 album All 6's And 7's for today's Throwback Thursday cut. Both Weezy F and T-Pain are experiencing a career resurgence of sorts lately, at least, they've been impressing with their music, so it is fitting they are both featured here. Ninna is also experiencing a career peak (although we can't say he's ever been on a decline) after earning $8 million last year and making it on to Forbes' Hip-Hop Cash Kings list- not a bad feat for an underground and independent rapper.
Let Me Thru (CDQ)
T-Pain Feat. Lil Wayne
Remember how fire "Can't Believe It" was? How about "Got Money"? Well, the team behind those hits, T-Pain and Lil Wayne, are back with a new single entitled "Let Me Thru." After we got a radio rip last month, Nappy Boy Records have shared a CDQ on their SoundCloud.
