T-Pain WGCI Big Jam United Center - Chicago, IL

T-Pain doesn’t really have his own songs to perform. So while waiting for him to come out on stage at WGCI’s Big Jam 2008, I was wondering which songs he would chose to “sing” that night. Does he even have a song that does NOT feature another rapper or singer? Usually, he is featured on other artists songs, not the other way around. You can hear T-Pain “singing” on records by Mariah Carey, Rick Ross, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, and much more. I have to admit, I do not own any of his music, so I don’t even know the answer to that question. All I know is that this twentysomething guy has made well over $2 million dollars in ringtone sales alone. This is crazy seeing as how he is not even a real singer! With the help of a little vocal pitch correction technology device called Auto-Tune, T-Pain has made a name for himself in the music industry. I knew that T-Pain would start off his set opening for Lil Wayne with a song that he sings on, but that is not his song. Of course, I was right. He came out on stage and launched into singing his featured part of Kanye West’s hit “Good Life” from West’s Graduation album. That lasted about less than a minute, no doubt about it. Nevertheless, it was fun to sing along to all of T-Pain’s radio hits that you hear on everybody’s cell phones. More photos after the jump…
