Despite what people think about T-Pain, he is considered one of the most intelligent and coordinated rappers whose lyrics meant a lot, but he soon left the rap world and went over to hip-hop instead. He currently sings and raps, writes songs, and is a record producer.
Apart from his popular stage name T-Pain, he is also known as Teddy Penderazdoun Teddy Verseti. He became famous in 2004 and currently works with the record label Nappy Boy Konvict RCA Jive. In addition to his vocal skills, he also plays drums and keyboard and has performed with other great artists such as Chris Brown, Benny Benassi, Rick Ross, Akon, Lil Wayne, Kanye West, J-Ax, and Fedez.
T-Pain’s Bio, (Age, Full Name)
T-Pain was named Faheem Rashad Najm when he was born on September 30, 1985, in Tallahassee, Florida, USA, to parents Shaheed and Aliyah Najm. He grew up in a family that was highly religious, although it seems they had difficulty making ends meet. T-Pain’s parents are devout Muslims who tried to educate him as such, but he never had much love for the bonds of religion and chose instead to renounce ties to Islamic or any other religion.
His father remembers that since his childhood he always had a drumstick in his hand. His parents soon saw the gifts in him and took great steps to encourage him. By the time he was ten years old, T-Pain had accumulated enough knowledge to turn his bedroom into his own private studio, whereupon his father took him out of middle school and taught him at home how to create good music, since he liked music himself, but could not be signed to any label.
T-Pain’s journey to professional music began when he joined the rap group Nappy Headz, whose cover of Akon’s single “Locked Up” was a big hit, and T-Pain signed with Konvict Muzik. With this label, he released his debut album Rappa Ternt Sanga in 2005, which was a great success and critically acclaimed. The following year, he began work on his second album with the Zomba Label Group and Jive Records in addition to Akon’s label. The album Epiphany finally got really hot on June 5th, 2007, and made it to the top of Billboard 200 in the first week, having previously released the lead single featuring Yung Joc.
He made his mark in the music industry and founded his record label Nappy Boy Entertainment in 2005. Under this label, he started working on his third studio album together with Lil Wayne and other music stars. The album entitled Thr33 Ringz was finally released in November 2008. T-Pain’s fourth album was completed in 2010 but was not released until 2011 after it had met with massive interest.
The beginning of 2013 came as a surprise to many enthusiastic fans of T-Pain when he announced that he had had enough and would let go of his characteristic dreads that many have become accustomed to. He also used this medium to announce his fifth album Stoicville: The Phoenix, which he said signaled a new era for him, an era in which he would rise to new heights. He worked long and hard on the album and finally released it on November 17, 2017.
In addition to music, the master singer and rapper has also tried his hand at other areas where he has certainly made money. Since he is his typical self, he also did very well in these other undertakings. First T-Pain caught his eye in the world of technology in 2009 and got him to team up with an app creator for the iPhone, simply called Smule. Since he lives and breathes music, you can rightly assume that the collabo produced a karaoke app with the apt name “I Am T-Pain”. With this app, fans and music lovers, in general, could use his auto-tune style for karaoke.
In the same year, he also tried his hand at acting. The first of these was his debut as Frylock in a live-action episode of the adult animated series Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Not wanting to take it slow, T-Pain took the bold step of creating his very own special animation for television. He called it Freaknik: The Musical. Again with the musical connection. True to its value, Cartoon Network gave the green light, and the premiere took place on March 7, 2010. So far it has been performed in an interesting cast with music stars such as the legendary Rick Ross, Snoop Dog, Charlie Murphy, and others.
Net Worth and House
The total value of the net assets of the legendary T-Pain was estimated at $35 million. This is mainly income from the many songs he has brought to the charts, the record label he founded, the app he helped design, and the movies he participated in and created. He is at number 19 on the list of the richest rappers in the world.
His home in Duluth, Georgia’s Winfield on the River gated subdivision, is estimated at $1,320,000. It has five bedrooms and bathrooms and a mini-bath next to a swimming pool. In total, the mansion occupies a huge property measured at 5962 square feet.
His love for cars is alarming and certainly reflects his status of wealth. He has purchased 32 cars to date, including a Bugatti Veyron, two Rolls Royces, a dark blue Lamborghini Gallardo, a yellow Ferrari, a Chevy classic car, a Ford truck, a Chevrolet SUV, a convertible Mini Cooper, a Gucci Fiat 500, and all sorts of other classic cars.
T-Pain’s Wife and Kids
Amber Najm (new Watt) became T-Pain heartbreaker in 2003 when they married, and since then their union has been blessed with three lovely children, two boys, Lyriq, Muziq, and a girl, Kaydnz Kodah. Amber Najim is an African American who attended St. Johns’s College and previously dreamed of owning her own business. This dream soon came to an end after she married the rising star T-Pain and became a very content housewife.
Shortly after their marriage, when they were still quite young, trouble arose when Amber found out that her husband had cheated on her. During the same period, she also made the amazing discovery that she was interested in women. They soon found common ground by making the decision not to be with anyone alone. It became a threesome affair, and it seems to have worked out well for her since they are still strong together.
The openness in their marriage may have kept them together, but there was trouble a second time when rumors arose that T-Pain was expecting a child with an Elisa Hood a.k.a. Ms. Cherry after she had been involved with the couple in threes. The actor soon cleared the air in an interview in which he said that mistakes happen, but that his marriage was good.
T-pain is 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 75 kg. He has black hair and dark brown eyes. In the past, he discovered a fear, which he abolished in 2013, so now he goes for a deep cut.
