Rapper T-Pain has been pretty much MIA in the R&B game but he’s still around. In fact, he’s currently on the road on his I Am T-Pain tour. Although he’s been away from rap for a period of time, the Auto-Tune crooner says he’s ready to come out with new material.

In his interview with 107.5FM radio personality Aaron Traylor, T-Pizzle believes the rap game is in dire need of fresh music.

"At this point, I’m proud of myself and ready to show the world that they need me," he says. "I think the game needs me, they need original content."

"I’ve always come out with something original and I don’t think anybody is doing that anymore," he continues. "The game needs T-Pain and I’m the best to ever do this."

True indeed. From 2006 to 2010, T-Pain has appeared and/or produced over 50 hit singles. The Florida-based artist’s most successful collaborative hit was Flo Rida’s debut single 'Low,' which has sold 6 million copies worldwide.

T-Pain is working on his fifth solo album, ‘Stoicville: The Phoenix,' which has no release date as of yet.
