T-Pain (short for Tallahassee Pain), born Faheem Rasheed Najm in 1985, is an American singer, rapper and record producer. He began his career as a rapper in the group Nappy Headz in 2004. In 2005, he released his debut album ''Rappa Ternt Sanga'' which reached number 33 on the Billboard top 200. He won a Grammy in 2008 with KanyeWest for the single "Good Life" and another in 2010 for the single "Blame It" with Jamie Foxx. He is most known for his ''extensive'' use of AutoTune, and also for being in every song on the radio that Pitbull & Music/DavidGuetta aren't already in. At one point in late 2007, he was featured on ''four'' top ten singles on the Billboard Top 100 chart.

!!Tropes:
* AutoTune: Probably one of the {{Trope Codifier}}s of it with current rappers. Actually used well, since he deliberately overuses it to make his vocals sound metallic, rather than just to cover his mistakes.
* IconicItem: T-Pain is always seen with sunglasses, usually huge white-rimmed ones, though he will have different ones sometimes. This led to jokes that he was secretly crosseyed or something like that.
** His famous hat, to a lesser extent.
** Also his big ass chain. The one that says "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin BIG ASS CHAIN]]" in diamonds.
* WolverinePublicity: The artists he has worked with include R. Kelly, KanyeWest, T.I., Bow Wow, Fabolous, ChrisBrown, Pitbull, Wiz Khalifa, LilWayne, TechN9ne, Ludacris, Music/NeYo, JesseMcCartney, {{Music/Ciara}}, Rick Ross, DJ Khaled, Music/TaylorSwift (in a parody song, "Thug Story"), LilyAllen and was even in "We Are the World 25 for Haiti".
