We haven’t heard much from T-Pain since went “Up Down”  — in his last in, way back in 2013.

But now, the man who infamously brought back the Auto-Tune into the Millennial generation, had shockingly announced late last year that he was going to release a project without the Auo-Tune rework.

Now the time has come for Nappy Boy — as the Founder of Nappy Boy Entertainment is currently readying himself to hear critics’ reviews on this none T-Pain type of project. Today, he has officially released his 21-track mixtape titled, The Iron Way — hosted by DJ Drama and Trendsetter Dense.

In a matter of 21-tracks, Nappy Boy manages to squeeze in phenomenal feature appearances from acts such as: The-Dream, Bun B, Big K.R.I.T., sounds by our late Babygirl — Aaliyah, Lil Wayne, and many more.

If you remember, a few days ago T-pain released visuals to a track titled, “Sleepin’ Beautiful”. Watch a new type of T-Pain in that video, below:

Oddly enough the track is not listed on the set’s tracklist, which fairly raises the question:

“So, was the video just a viral promo. for the project?”

Nonetheless, his new project is a wonderful surprise and a change that shows many that — if done right — a come back is possible, which makes him a true Iron Man for successfully doing so in The Iron Way. Stream the mixtape, below:


#FlashbackFriday to that morning T-Pain came through to see Sway and sing for one of the first times on-air, without Auto-Tune! Needless to say, everyone tuned into that show was left in awe:



Icon of hip-hop culture and a pivotal part of the MTV News team, Sway has been a staple of the music-news arena for more than a decade. From giving Eminem, Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac their very first radio airplay on his local show in the mid-’90s to providing television viewers with their first good look at some of today’s hottest celebrities in music, film, fashion and sports. Sway has been there for some of music and the world’s biggest moments.
