If you’ve watched the recent Netflix documentary, ‘This Is Pop’, you’ll know that T-Pain has his own label, Nappy Boy Entertainment. His first signing, Chayo Nash, is a musician after T-Pain’s own heart, and he makes music of his very own style, which draws from hip-hop, spaced-out guitar rock, soul, electric blues, and R&B, allowing his Chicago roots to show, yet imbuing it with the casual laidback hedonism of his adopted home, Florida. Nash’s latest single, ‘Like Dis’ is the perfect demonstration for why he was chosen by Nappy Boy. The respective chemistry and dynamism of Chayo Nash and T-Pain’s voices is showcased in ‘Like Dis’; it’s a match made in heaven.
When you mention T-Pain, what do you think of? I think of his vocal effects, the imaginative, otherworldly sounds which he’s incorporated into his songs. Many have copied, but at the end of the day, T-Pain is the OG of voice processing, and his experimentation always kept him at the front of the barrier.
