Introduction 

T-Pain released his first album back in 2005 and his second album, Epiphany, reached number 1 on the US Billboard 200 chart. His third album was released in 2008 and a number of the songs hit and are the songs that usually come to mind when you think of T-Pain — “I’m Sprung”, “I’m ‘n Luv (Wit a Stripper)”, “Buy U a Drank”, “Bartender”, and more. 

T-Pain won 2 grammy awards from 12 nominations and he has sold over 50 million records

Last September, T-Pain released a limited edition 1/1 NFT, which sold for $3,228.50 via auction and the winner received a one-hour, 1-on-1 gaming session with T-Pain via video call. 

In partnership with Crypto.com, T-Pain released a 2nd NFT collection on August 1st called the ‘Can I Mix You a Drink’ NFT collection. 

Why Does T-Pain Want to Mix You a Drink With NFTs? 

“You know, a lot of my music is about drinking.” — T-Pain

T-Pain’s adult drink recipe book was released in 2021 in collaboration with award-winning mixologist Maxwell Britten and author Kathy Iandoli

And T-Pain is right, a lot of his most popular songs are about drinking, but a little-known fact about his life is that his wife is a certified mixologist who makes signature cocktails for podcast guests on T-Pain’s show “Nappy Boy Radio”. 

If that’s not enough, T-Pain’s parents owned a restaurant called Fish-N-D pocket in Florida, and he recently purchased his own restaurant

In a tweet, T-Pain described purchasing the restaurant as “taking the leap on anything I truly love and believe in”. 

So, T-Pain is taking a major part of his childhood, his music, and his significant other and is mixing drinks IRL and in the metaverse. 

What’s clear about his book, his restaurant, his music, and the NFT project is that he has an authentic passion for the hospitality industry. It’s a big part of T-Pain’s identity and he’s put real effort into bringing people value. 

For example, his book consists of 50 drink recipes, and a writer for Slate who tried some of the recipes wrote that “the book takes great care in offering a variety of upscale alcoholic beverages and their detailed methodologies within its jet-black pages.”

Shout out if you’re like me and can’t get ‘Can I Buy You a Drank’ out of your head, it’s a side effect of reading the article :) It’s also a reminder of how popular and recognizable the song is ;)
