GTA 6 PS5 PlayStation

Faheem Rashad Najim, the musician better known as T-Pain, has revealed the heavy price developer Rockstar demanded in return for his work on the upcoming GTA 6. The artist featured on Flo Rida's Low would no longer be able to frequent the popular GTA 5 roleplaying server NoPixel, which he seems genuinely sad about.

In a clip doing the rounds on social media, T-Pain revealed the tragic news in response to a fan inquiry, who had noted the artist's absence on the popular server. In response, he explained that Rockstar said he couldn't RP any more because, describing: "What if somebody took your album and re-recorded it, and more people were listening to that,' and I'm like, 'Okay, I kind of get that, but I was having a good time."

In a fun twist, Rockstar actually hired the modders responsible for NoPixel, a development which T-Pain laughingly called out: "Then I started working on the game with them, and then they teamed up with the people that make the RP sh*t, and I'm like, 'Wait a minute, what? What the f**ck?...Y'all tell me I can't do this sh*t, and then you team up with the people that enable the RP?"

It remains to be seen what role (pardon the pun) T-Pain will play in GTA 6, or hope a big a focus the game places on community role-play, but we hope development on the project goes swiftly. Presumably, once the game is out in the wild, the Grammy Award-winning, certified diamond artist will get back to doing what we all love best: assuming the role of someone else in a virtual world.
