Watch T-Pain’s Incredible NPR Music Front Row Concert

blame it on Meka December 9, 2015

Recently, T-Pain celebrated both the ten-year anniversary of his debut album Rappa Ternt Sanga and his memorable 2014 performance on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert (which has since become the most popular performance in its history) by returning to National Public Radio for a special concert. Held in Washington, DC, the show quickly sold out of tickets moments after they were announced, and fans were treated to another well-received set which included the debut of new music from his upcoming album Stoicville: The Phoenix.

Speaking of which, Pain said that Stoicville is slated to arrive on December 11th

Anyways, the presentation was a grandiose affair, with Faheem wowing the crowd once again with the debut of new tracks from the album (“Officially Yours“), renditions of vintage tracks from his expansive catalog, and a stirring cover of Sam Cooke’s “Change Is Gonna Come.” This time backed by a mini-band, T-Pain showed once again that he is arguably one of the more influential artists of the millennial generation. Watch the entire thing below.

Set list:

“Tipsy” — 0:42
“Officially Yours” * — 3:26
“Can’t Believe It” — 8:41
