Coming on June 3, T-Pain will have his own show called “Nappy Boy Radio” under PodcastOne, one of the biggest advertiser-supported podcast networks.
“Too many conversations and interactions I was having with various people kept ending in the same way with me saying, ‘Damn, we should have recorded that.’ So we decided to do just that and launch the ‘Nappy Boy Radio’ podcast,” T-Pain told Deadline, which broke the story. “Partnering with PodcastOne, a company that is talent first, was a no-brainer for us.”
“At PodcastOne, we seek hosts who are charismatic and engaging with something to say that audiences want to hear. T-Pain is all that and more,” President of PodcastOne Kit Gray said.
“His innate curiosity and interest in the world around him and the people who live in it offers up endless possibilities for show content and we cannot wait to launch ‘Nappy Boy Radio’ with T-Pain,” Gray told Deadline.
The podcast is said to be recorded inside T-Pain’s, whose real name is Faheem Rasheed Najm, new studio where he plans on covering a wide variety of things from music to gaming to exotic cars to technology to alcoholic beverages alongside guests: actress Peyton List, Xolo Maridueña, Jacob Bertrand, Cobra Kai actor Joe Seo, Mike Tyson, Lil Jon, Steve-O, Jazzy Pha, and Rae Sremmurd’s Slim Jxmmi.
T-Pain has been blowing up with popularity in the past few years.
In early 2019, in Season 1 of FOX’s hit show The Masked Singer, it was revealed that winner T-Pain was under the mask of Monster throughout the competition, which surprised the judges who were used to hearing T-Pain sing with autotune.
The singer also has a new song with Kehlani called “I Like Dat,” which if one likes T-Pain’s 2007- 2013 catalog, they might like.
