Buy U A Drank
T-Pain is blowing up the charts with his new single "Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin')" feat. Yung Joc. Pain has come into his own as an artist and his new record, Epiphany, dropping 6/12, will show a more mature side of the singer, rapper, writer and producer.
He's currently featured on R.Kelly's smash "I'm A Flirt" along side T.I., but T-Pain is one of the most prolific R&B artists in the game.
In the winter of 2005, southern soulster T-Pain burst on the rhythmic scene with his debut Rappa Ternt Sanga and things just ain't been the same. As a former microphone fiend who was down with the rap pack known as the Nappy Headz, a five-man group who had moderate success with "Robbery" in the early 2000's, T-Pain was tired of the borders that divides hip-hop and soul, especially since he was excellent at both.
Coming back strong in 2007, T-Pain has been hard at work constructing his sophomore joint Epiphany. Personal without being pretentious, Epiphany offers the listener a variety of musical styles that ranges from the snappin' first single "Buy U a Drank" (featuring Yung Joc) to the rebel reggae furor of "Shotz" to the deep message of "Suicide." Indeed, with each song we can only marvel at the proficiency that T-Pain has developed, both on the mic and behinds the boards.
While T-Pain embraces both the old-school and current R&B, his complete persona on Epiphany shows us an artist who is unafraid of taking chances.
