T-Pain has officially announced his participation in the much-anticipated “Grand Theft Auto VI” (“GTA VI”) for Playstation and Xbox.
The game is projected to release in 2025 and already has gamers on their feet following the first trailer drop in December 2023. According to a press release, the game will be “the biggest, most immersive evolution of the Grand Theft Auto series yet.”
While there are still mysteries surrounding the latest series, there is a new revelation that was dropped by artist T-Pain. He shares he is involved in the makings of “GTA IV,” but it has come at a cost.
Rockstar Games, the video game company behind “Grand Theft Auto,” is no longer allowing T-Pain to role-play on NoPixel, a popular server for “Grand Theft Auto V.”
IGN reports T-Pain has been gaming on the NoPixel server since 2021, and now fans have taken note that he is no longer active on the server.
“I used to be on NoPixel. Then I started working on the f-cking, on GTA VI, and they told me I couldn’t do RP anymore because it kind of goes against sh-t,” T-Pain said in a livestream clip on Instagram. “They had this whole speech like, ‘What if somebody took your album and rerecorded it and more people were listening to that?’ Then I’m like, ‘Okay, I kind of get that, but I was having a good time. Then I started working on the game with them, and then they teamed up with the people that make the RP sh-t. I’m like, ‘Wait a minute… Y’all told me I couldn’t do this sh-t then y’all teamed up with the people that enable the RP sh-t.”
At the time of this writing, there has been no comment from Rockstar Games on the matter. Additionally, it is unclear the extent of T-Pain’s contributions on the upcoming game.
