T-Pain Heads to India for VH1 Hip Hop Hustle
T-Pain may have killed the Auto-Tune craze for using it abundantly in his work, but fans in India aren’t complaining. The Florida native will travel overseas to perform for Indian music lovers in three cities later this month as part of the Tuborg VH1 Hip Hop program.
The ‘RevolveR’ creator, who has two Grammys under his belt, will be showcasing songs from his catalog live in Mumbai, Pune and Delhi on March 9, 11 and 12, respectively. T-Pain will head to venues Blue Frog, Stone Water Grill and Jynxxx.
“I am really excited to come to India and meet my fans,” the rapper said. “I am aware that the hip-hop culture in the country is really big and am looking forward to play in Mumbai, Pune and Delhi. I hope my fans are ready to party!”
Tuborg, a Danish brewing company, partnered with VH1, India’s only international entertainment channel, to launch the largest hip-hop initiative in the country. VH1 Hip Hop Hustle debuted in October 2010.
T-Pain is currently working on his oft-delayed fourth studio album, ‘RevolveR.’ According to the rumor mill, the 25-year-old producer and songwriter has joined Lil Wayne‘s Young Money camp, although no confirmations from Wayne himself have been made yet. The Grammy winning artist — one for the 2008 Kanye West track ‘Good Life’ and another for the 2010 song by Jamie Foxx, ‘Blame It’ — can be heard on DJ Khaled‘s new single, ‘Welcome to My Hood,’ off his ‘We the Best Forever’ album.
