Since emerging in 2004, T-Pain not only changed the course of pop, hip-hop, and R&B, but he also reshaped the fabric of the culture itself. Beyond moving over 50 million singles, gathering billions of streams, picking up six GRAMMY® Awards, and selling out shows on multiple continents, his voice could be heard loud and clear as “All I Do Is Win” soundtracked President Barack Obama’s entry into the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, during the “most popular” NPR Tiny Desk concert in the series’ history, and when he shocked audiences everywhere as the first-ever winner of FOX’s smash The Masked Singer. The Tallahassee trailblazer’s influence now transcends generations. Simultaneously, the man born Faheem Rasheed Najm shines as a Twitch phenomenon and popular streamer, label honcho for Nappy Boy Entertainment, founder of Nappy Boy Automotive, drifting enthusiast, actor, and author with his literary debut Can I Mix You a Drink in 2021.
T-Pain is not new to the automotive industry and has always had a love for cars. When he took his first drift lesson over six years ago with Chelsea DeNofa, he was instantly hooked. He set out on his goal to develop Nappy Boy Automotive to create inclusion in the space and wants everyone to feel like they can be part of the fun.
