T-Pain confirms he is involved in GTA 6
Faheem Rashad Najm, better known as T-Pain, has confirmed that he is involved in Grand Theft Auto VI in some way, which has prevented him from role-playing on GTA V per Rockstar's orders.
The singer-songwriter, best known for his 2000s hits and pioneering the use of autotune, announced his collaboration with Rockstar on GTA VI during a recent Twitch livestream. It's unclear how the rapper is involved in the project, but he could make a cameo appearance or work as one of the radio hosts.
T-Pain also explained his absence from the GTA V role-playing server NoPixel, which he has been a member of since 2021. According to the singer, Rockstar asked him to stop playing on the server, saying, “What if somebody took your album and re-recorded it, and more people were listening to that?"
Although he agreed to stop role-playing, he jokingly noted the irony that the developers of FiveM, the service that powers the role-playing servers, had teamed up with Rockstar to work on GTA VI. "Then I started working on the game with them, and then they teamed up with the people that, kind of like, make the RP shit, and I'm like, 'Wait a minute, what? What the fuck?” said a perplexed T-Pain. "Wait... Y'all tell me I can't do this shit, and then you team up with the people that enable the RP? Anyways, whatever."
So far, little information about GTA VI's Online offering has been revealed, but given how popular role-playing servers have become in recent years, it's likely that Rockstar is looking into providing official servers using FiveM. The service is currently only available on PC, but this could change when GTA VI is released on consoles.
