T-Pain Shares His Journey on VH1′s ‘Behind the Music’ [Full Episode]

T-Pain

From being an outcast to putting his signature stamp on pop music, T-Pain recalled his unlikely rise to stardom on VH1’s “Behind the Music.” Born Faheem Rasheed Najm, the rappa-ternt-sanga grew up in a middle class family in Tallahassee, Florida, and was picked on in school. He eventually dropped out in the eighth grade to pursue his dreams full-time and found local success with his group the Nappy Headz.

With problems at home and hardly a dollar to his name, T-Pain ran away and signed with Akon’s upstart label Konvict Records, eventually becoming one of the most sought-after producers for his Auto-Tune sound.

During the one-hour episode, T-Pain opened up about his father’s drug addiction and his unconventional marriage, with commentary from his wife, parents, brother, and Akon.

“I made a promise to myself that I wouldn’t let anybody or anything hold me back,” said the platinum Pain.
