Two-time Grammy winner and hip-hop legend, T-Pain has announced that he will be returning to Australia this October for his I Am T-Pain tour.
He brought the vocoder to the mainstream, and now Nappy Boy will bring hits such as ‘Take Your Shirt Off’, ‘Buy You A Drank’ and ‘Booty Wurk’ to Aussie fans in Bendigo, Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Broome.
The tour comes ahead of the release of the rapper’s fifth album, Stoicville: The Phoenix, which is set to drop later this year. However, the 28-year-old recently gave fans a taste of the album in the form of second single, ‘Drankin’ Patna’. The synth-heavy, R & B track is the follow up to last year’s ‘Up Down (Do This All Day)’ featuring B.o.B. As the accompanying music video has already clocked over 28 million views, it seems like fans just can’t get enough.
With a career spanning over a decade, and four albums under his bedazzled belt, the top hat-toting, grill-wearing rapper will have plenty of musical dimes to pull out of his hat. He will be also joined on the road by Sydney’s DJ Nino Brown, Lazy J, YMS (Young Men Society), Mistah Mez (feat Dj Libre) and Flygirl Tee.
