Tallahassee-based MC and vocalist T-Pain (born Faheem Najm) came up in a rap group called Nappy Headz but eventually went pro as a solo R&B artist. Recording artist Akon heard the first release by T-Pain and took him under his wing with a contract on his Jive-distributed Konvict Muzik label. Produced and written mostly by T-Pain, Rappa Ternt Sanga was released in December 2005, led by the Top 20 single “I’m Sprung.” Top selling album Epiphany followed in June 2007. He is currently touting in support of his newest album, Thee Ringz.
