T-Pain invites unsigned producers to join his team 'someone who wants to make beats and not be an artist'
If you're a producer who isn't that enthralled by the idea of becoming a superstar artist on stage but, instead, just loves making music, and if you haven't had the opportunity to step into the big game of producing music commercially, there is very good news for you.
Singer-songwriter, producer T-Pain is making a special offer for up-and-coming producers from Atlanta. Taking to his social media today (September 20), the 'Can't Believe It' singer noted, "If ur an unsigned producer in Atlanta that's dope bt you can also carry the added bonus of not wanting to be an artist, post a video of you producing and use the hashtag #BroIpromiseIjustWantToMakeBeatsForNappyBoyEntertainmentAndImNotEvenTryingToBeAnArtist," adding, "If you lookin for work."
Although there is a humorous element to the hashtag, the producer did clarify that the offer was indeed real in his caption on Instagram. "I know this shit is slightly funny but I’m dead a** serious. I need some dope producers for the new office. Come get this work...... actual work...... like.... a job. @nappyboyentertainment."

When asked "You not allowed to be both anymore?...." by a fan who wanted to know if the career opportunity would allow them to become a signed artist as well, T-Pain explained that the producer job is purely about making music for him and his roster of artists. "Absolutely. On somebody’s label that’s looking for that. I need production for myself and my artists. I’m not trying to add another artist to the roster," he said in response to the fan.
