T-Pain Celebrates New Album With New Baby
This is an exciting time for T-Pain. First and foremost, the father of two tells the Boombox his wife is pregnant with their third child, to go with their four-year-old daughter and one-year-old son. And by the time baby number three is born, the collaborator extraordinaire may have another hit album on his hands.
His latest effort, ‘Thr33 Ringz,’ features collaborations with Kanye West, Ludacris, Chris Brown, and more. “What people really know me for now is collaborations, so I decided to make an album pretty much full of collaborations,” he says. “It’s real good-feeling music, so I just made sure everybody brought their own flavor to my feel good music.”
Among the standout collaborations is ‘Chopped and Screwed,’ a David Lynch-esque song that messes around with Luda’s vocals in a way Pain said even surprised him. “I didn’t think ‘Chopped and Screwed’ was gonna come out like that at all, like ever,” he says. “I’ve been wanting to do the ‘Chopped and Screwed’ song for like two years and just pushing it off. I’m glad I waited two years.”
For fans looking for beefs, Pain is the wrong guy. He says seeing hat all of his peers are doing just inspires him. “It definitely gives me a push. I don’t really see the celebrity of the person, I see the music they make and that really inspires me to make my music,” he says. “It’s really the music they make and I really remember everything that I go through and I mix it all together, which makes my genre of music.”
