T-Pain is following a new calling as the rap veteran and entertainer is now a restaurant owner.

“I DID IT BOIS!!!! Im officially a restaurant owner. Got my keys today and I’m scared as sh&%. BUT! I can no longer ignore the paths God has set for me just because I don’t understand or I’m scared,” T-Pain wrote on Instagram.

A Leap Of Faith


He continued: “I’ve learned that if I’m not afraid, that means I’m in my comfort zone, that may be what some ppl want but as comfortable as it is in there, it also gets fu–en BORING!!! In this new chapter of my life I’m taking the leap on anything I truly love and believe in. I’m fully in control and don’t have to ask for permission to believe in myself anymore. Let this be a sign to GO DO THE THING!! If you’re not afraid, you’re too comfortable.”

Switching Lanes

T-Pain is not the only rapper-turned restaurant owner switching lanes.

As AfroTech previously reported, Nick Cannon celebrated the opening of his Wild ‘N Out Sports Bar and Arcade in his hometown of San Diego, CA in March 2022.

“It’s a beautiful opportunity to be able to open this up and to have people come out from the community and show love,” Cannon said, according to FOX 5 San Diego at the time. “To really have the people that I came up with, you know, support a brand that I created. It’s homegrown at the end of the day.”
