Today, Sept. 30, marks the birthday of hip-hop's favorite rapper-turned-singer, T-Pain, who now turns 33.

T-Pain is best known for popularizing the use of auto-tune in hip-hop, employing the vocal effect on over 50 chart topping singles since 2005.  The Florida rapper/singer has also been nominated 11 times for a Grammy Award and, after slowing up his output a good bit, he's continued putting out a stream of new material while jumping into new endeavors.

In August 2018, T-Pain reached deep into the vaults of his unreleased music and unleashed Everything Must Go (Vol. 1), a project that includes features from Joey Bada$$, Ace Hood and Joe Budden. That same month it was announced that the singer would be starring in a new Fuse TV series by the name of T-Pain's School of Business.

Happy Birthday, T-Pain!
