T-Pain: The Real Star of Summer Jam

jay and tpain

I’m just sayin. Between the “Big Ass Chain” he rocked, and him coming out unannounced during Jay-Z’s set. I think T-Pain was the biggest thing at NYC’s Summer Jam this year. 

damn…Lol. it’s been that long since my last post. oh well.

T-Pain: More Hooks, Less Looks.

I have to admit, T-Pain is kinda hot. No, correction. T-Pain’s music is kinda hot. I’m starting to realize that I can’t get his hooks out of my head. But his looks, well, that’s a bit more painful. 

Question: Does an artist’s image really matter? Short answer is: yes! I realized that more-so when T-Pain said last night at the BET Awards that last year he couldn’t even get a seat to the show. He had to be pretty talented to succeed. 

So I want to give it up to T-Pain, who must have gotten a hell of a lot of push back when he was shopping his demo around. Just imagine what label executives said when his package came across their desk. A picture attached that could have possibly hurt their eyes. “Sorry, but I think we’re passing on this one.” 

I am buying a T-Pain album, when it comes out (uhhh…did it come out yet??). 


C’mon. T-Pain? It’s not him.

Upon first look at this picture, you might think…this is a decent looking guy, but I’m smarter than that. For the past year, I have seen this picture passed off as T-Pain, and I’m putting my foot down. I don’t buy it anymore!! Jive records, you can’t trick me like that. I know what I saw when I saw this man in person. I don’t know who this guy in the picture is, but trying to pass him off as T-Pain is not going to go over well with fans. Now I don’t want to fully blame the artist or the record label here, because it could be a bunch of irresponsible internet bloggers and journalists not doing their research. I’ve learned about the art of picture taking and how one must angle their head a certain way to get the best results, but this is more than just something like Mariah being photographed from one side of her face. This, my children, is another person. It is a skinny, light-skinned (okay maybe brown) person. No, it is. Doesn’t anyone agree with me or am I blind? Who is this guy?
