With 60 hit songs under his belt and two Grammy trophies on his mantle, T-Pain has cemented himself as one of the most influential artists of all time. But even he needed a bit of time to himself to reload. After a run of number one hits, albums, tours and a plethora of cameo appearances, T-Pain took some time off to enjoy the fruits of his labor and perfect his craft.
T-Pain returned to the public spotlight in 2018 according to Paradigm Talent Agency, by launching an "Everything Must Go" campaign in August to clear out his vault of unreleased music as a gift to his dedicated fans. He is currently starring in the hit television show on Fuse titled "T-Pain's School of Business," as the dean of his very own "school"—Wiscansin University— and has an album slated to come out in early 2019. T-Pain is showing no signs of slowing down and is attempting to prove that he only gets better with time.
Born in Tallahassee, Florida, T-Pain joined the rap group Nappy Headz in 2004. After being signed to the Konvict Muzik label, he recorded his debut album "Rappa Turnt Sanga." He released his fifth album "Oblivion" in 2017 and the albums "Everything Must Go", volumes one and two, in 2018. Recent singles on his 2019 album 1Up include "Getcha Roll On" and "All I Want" with Flipp Dinero. T-Pain's "1UP" tour featuring Tony Lanez begins Feb. 16.
The performance is sponsored by Luther's Student Activities Council Concerts Committee.
