Faheem Rashad Najm, better known as T-Pain, is, arguably, one of the most influential artists of the millennial generation (to reiterate what I said in my “Salute To T-Pain” mix), and whether you admit it or not his DNA is all over music’s blueprints today.
Between 2006 and 2010, T-Pain was featured on over fifty chart topping singles. He owns three Gold-selling albums, has eleven Gold or Platinum singles, and was featured on 15 plaque-attaining singles. While he has not released an album since 2011’s rEVOLVEr, many other artists — Kanye West and Lil Wayne in the past; Travis Scott, Future and Quavo in the present — have employed an Auto-Tune-fused musical style similar to his to propel their own careers.
Finally, T-Pain has released his fifth album OBLiViON. His first full-length in six years, the 16-track album is led by the singles “Goal Line” and “Textin’ My Ex,” with the likes of Ty Dolla $ign, Blac Youngsta, Ne-Yo, Wale, Chris Brown and others showing up to contribute.
