In the winter of 2005, southern soulster T-Pain burst on the rhythmic scene with his debut Rappa Ternt Sanga and things just ain't been the same. As a former microphone fiend who was down with the rap pack known as the Nappy Headz, a five-man group who had moderate success with "Robbery" in the early 2000's, T-Pain was tired of the borders that divide hip-hop and soul, especially since he was excellent at both. Well on his way to a brilliant career, T-Pain sold a combined five million ring-tones of "Stripper" and "Sprung." Coming back strong in 2007, T-Pain has been hard at work constructing his sophomore joint Epiphany. "There has been a growth inside of me since I made that first album," states T-Pain, reflecting on the time he spent working on his latest project. "To be blunt, I had to learn to stop being lazy in the studio. On the first album I recorded what I thought people wanted to hear, this time it was about me being an artist." Traveling throughout the world while on tour with label-mate Chris Brown (and later with Bow Wow), also gave T-Pain a different perspective on life and music. "I loved being in London, because overseas it seemed that people were taking different kinds of risks with their records," T-Pain says. "I was also impressed when I was in Brixton, and the club was filled with Black people and not one fight broke out. Where I come from, folks fighting inside the spot is a regular thing." In addition to Epiphany, T-Pain is also gearing up to start working with various artists on outside projects including R. Kelly, Kanye West, Usher, Chris Brown and Britney Spears. "In the past nineteen days, I've gotten more than twenty-five calls from artists who want to work with me," T-Pain explains. "Right now, it's a very exciting time." While T-Pain embraces both the old-school and current R&B, his complete persona on Epiphany shows us an artist who is unafraid of taking chances. "For me, soul music is about love, and it's that kind of warmth that I want to bring back to the music." Forget about the next level, because T-Pain is taking us places that have yet to be defined.
