T-Pain booking info
AUSTIN – MARCH 18, 2016: Rapper and singer T-Pain speaks at a SXSW event in Austin, Texas.

T-Pain has been a hit-maker since the mid 2000s, and still continues to churn out hits for himself and others. Promoters have been booking T-Pain because he has a list of hits to run through for his performances, and the concert goers know the words to every song.

T-Pain is from Tallahassee, FL and first got into music at age 10 when his bedroom was turned into a music studio. He gained the attention of Akon when his group Nappy Headz released the song “I’m F’d Up” which was a play on Akons song “Locked Up”. Akon would go onto sign T-Pain to his label, and T-Pain would release his first single “I’m Sprung”. The single ended up being huge, and turned into a Top 10 single on the Billboard charts and had everybody checking for him. The T-Pain booking price would go up because of the overnight popularity of the artist, but he wasn’t done yet. He would release his second single “I’m In Luv (Wit A Stripper)”, which was even bigger than the previous single. T-Pain popularized the Auto-Tune sound, and his album Rapper Ternt Sanga, would go gold. T-Pain would be featured on a lot of different hits around this time, and promoters were getting T-Pain booking info, so that they could bring him to their club.

T-Pain released his second album Epiphany in 2006, and it would hit #1 on the Billboard charts. The album contained this like “Buy U A Drank” which would hit #1. T-Pain was being heard everywhere and on everything. The second single “Bartender” also was a Top 5 single on the Billboard charts. It seemed that everything that he released would be a hit. Not only was he making hits for himself but he was featured on other artist’s hits. He would be featured on “I’m A Flirt” by R. Kelly, “Outta My System” by Bow Wow, “Baby Don’t Go”, by Fabolous, “I’m So Hood” by DJ Khaled, and “Low” by Flo-Rida. He was officially the top artist to have on your song, and also at your club. Everybody was ready to book T-Pain at their venue as he was just the hottest rapper act at this time.

He would wait two years to release his next album titled Thr33 Ringz, which landed at #4 on the Billboard charts. The album would feature hits like “Can’t Believe It” featuring Lil Wayne and “Freeze” with Chris Brown. Not only were the songs from the album getting heavy play, he continued to be featured on more songs. He would pop up on hits like “She Got It” by 2 Pistols, “The Boss” by Rick Ross, and many more songs. Bookings for T-Pain would remain high, as he was just everywhere, and it would be impossible to not hear a song with him on it.

The momentum for T-Pain had slowed down, as he was one of the hottest acts for most of the 2000s. He would release his next album in 2011 called RevoleR, and it failed to match the success of his previous albums. The featured for T-Pain would slow down, and it would remain relatively quiet for the next year. He would pop up on the hit “Bag of Money” by Wale, but that would be his only big feature for 2012. T-Pain would jump back in the scene with the release of his song “Up Down” which features B.O.B, and venues are already gathering T-Pain booking info as they see him taking over the scene again.

When you are ready to book T-Pain for your event, we are more than happy to assist you. T-Pain has a huge catalog of hits and is surely not disappoint anybody who sees him in concert.
