Profile Bio Text
Faheem was born in Tallahassee, Florida to entrepreneur Muslim parents. At the age of ten, Faheem reworked his bedroom into a small studio with a Keyboard, beat machine and four track recorder, and began composing music. T-Pain first tasted musical success as a member of the 5-member Tallahassee rap outfit Nappy Heads, who enjoyed moderate success with such hits as "Robbery" and "F.L.A.". This allowed T-Pain to jumpstart his career as a solo artist. In 2002 he founded his own label, Hard & B. and soon caught the spotlight as a solo artist when his song "F***ed Up", a reworked version of Akon`s "Locked Up", gained popularity in the region. Akon noticed the song and signed T-Pain to his newly formed Konvict Muzik record label. T-Pain released his solo debut single, "I`m Sprung", in August 2005. His debut album, Rappa Ternt Sanga, was released on November 6, 2005, under Konvict Music. Hit singles "I`m Sprung" and "I`m N Luv (Wit a Stripper)" spawned official remixes titled "I`m Sprung 2" with Trick Daddy and the YoungBloodZ, and "I`m N Luv (Wit a Stripper), The Remix" with Twista, Pimp C, Paul Wall, R.Kelly, MJG and Too $hort. He is featured on E-40`s new single "U and Dat", which was produced by Lil Jon.
He has released a song for Myspace lovers, called "What`s Yo Myspace" featuring Tay Dizm. He released a song with Florida Artist J-Shin, called "Send Me An E-Mail". The Video for THE song was co-directed by T-Pain and Fellow Floridian filmmaker JOKES. His new single is "Froze" featuring Akon produced by Lil Jon for his upcoming album R&M : Rhythm & Music. This is the first song since "Fly Away" where he doesn`t use the vocoder effect on his voice. It won`t be released until February. T-Pain is currently in the studio in South Florida with several local artists, such as upcoming Palm Beach rap group Murk Squad/Street Ent. (slated to drop their album "Street Motivation" in early 2007) as well as others.
