T-Pain reveals reason for Nopixels exit following GTA VI collaboration: “What the f*ck”

Faheem Rashad Najm, aka T-Pain (in the music industry), is a two-time Grammy Award-winning singer who has been in the industry since 1999. The singer has been role-playing in the famous Grand Theft Auto V video game on NoPixel, a popular GTA V RP server.

As the details of the much-awaited GTA VI are still in the zone of oblivion, what remains known is the existence of role-playing servers. In a recent video of T-Pain, he revealed something that has struck the nerves of many fans.

T-Pain confirms collab with Rockstar Games

T-Pain, the accomplished musician and Twitch streamer, has recently become part of the creative team shaping Grand Theft Auto VI. This unexpected collaboration was unveiled during a live stream on social media, sparking many discussions among the fans.

While specific details about T-Pain’s role remain elusive, his confirmed involvement has ignited speculation regarding potential in-game music contributions or even a cameo appearance as a character.

Although T-Pain is no longer a frequent participant in GTA V’s role-play servers, the ripple effect of his influence and the broader community’s impact is anticipated in the forthcoming Grand Theft Auto instalment.

T-Pain reveals why he stopped Nopixel

The artist revealed the challenge of balancing his role in GTA 6 development with participation in GTA 5 role-playing, having been a NoPixel server enthusiast.

“I used to be on NoPixel, then I started working on GTA VI, and they told me I couldn’t do RP anymore because it kind of goes against… they had this whole speech, like, ‘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. Alright that’s fine’.” revealed T-Pain.

“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?” added the singer in his video.

Rockstar’s decision, juxtaposed with collaborations with modding teams behind servers like FiveM and RedM, raises eyebrows. This move unites role-play facilitators under the same umbrella as T-Pain, who was previously asked to step away.

The intriguing intersection of Rockstar’s decisions and T-Pain’s involvement suggests complex dynamics within the gaming community and the evolving relationship between developers and influential players in the expansive world of Grand Theft Auto.
