T-Pain A Successful Riddle To Rap Industry

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A rap star that skateboards? An R&B artist that rappers can’t resist?

There are plenty of contradictions to T-Pain, a self-described “hard R&B” artist who, for example, has a surprise hit with “I’m in Luv (Wit A Stripper).”

According to T-Pain, the song was written as a joke – but turned out to be a joke “everybody loved, so I put it out on the album.”

But true to form, T-Pain says he’s “not down with dating a stripper” because he wouldn’t want any future daughter to be on the pole, too.

T-Pain says it’s often hard for others in the industry to figure him out, based on the way he looks, for one, but also because he’s an avid skateboarder who’s “way into rock and alternative” bands, too.

T-Pain has also written E40’s new hit single, “U & Dat,” which is currently No. 22 on Billboard’s Hip Hop Airplay charts.
