T-Pain announces "Nappy Boy Radio" podcast, featuring appearances from Steve-O, Mike Tyson, and more.
T-Pain is widely regarded as one of the most endearing personalities in hip-hop, to the point where he's built up a substantial following on Twitch through his beat-making and gaming endeavors. Now, the autotune innovator is on the verge of launching his new development, a podcast by the name of Nappy Boy Radio, launched in partnership with PodcastOne.
Set to launch on June 4th, Deadline has shared a few details about T-Pizzle's upcoming project. "Too many conversations and interactions I was having with various people kept ending in the same way, with me saying, ‘Damn, we should have recorded that,’ so we decided to do just that and launch the Nappy Boy Radio podcast,” explains T-Pain. “Partnering with PodcastOne, a company that is talent first, was a no-brainer for us.”
