Does T-Pain even need an introduction? The R&B singer-songwriter is best known for sparking a whole autotune movement, unleashing hit after hit after hit. "I'm Sprung", "I'm 'n Luv (Wit a Stripper)", "Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin')", "Bartender", "Can't Believe It", “Kiss Kiss” featuring Chris Brown are just a few of our favorites.
Fast forward to 2020, T-Pain is living his best life. Quarantine has been his dream come true, revealing he actually hates travelling. His house in Atlanta is a trip in itself, stocked with his own arcade, movie theater, a T-Pain shrine in his hallway of accolades, and even room for his top hats. King Ice caught up with the Nappy Boy Entertainment founder to bring us back one of the most iconic chains in hip-hop history.
Do you still have your iconic chain?
Yeah, it’s somewhere in this house. I have no idea where it is. It’s somewhere in here, I don’t know man. I get drunk and I fuck with it a lot, then it gets put down somewhere in here. I don’t know where it is.
Do you ever wear it out?
Oh no, it’s too heavy. It’s too much. Either I’m at show on stage or I’m drunk out of my mind in the studio and feel like wearing it real quick. [laughs]
