Genius announced on Tuesday (March 5) that T-Pain will serve as the next special guest as part of their Genius Level conversation series.

The in-depth interview with Rob Markman is currently scheduled for 7:00 p.m. ET on March 19 at the Brooklyn Genius headquarters. RSVPs for the event are now open and will be free for all attendees. 

"T-Pain is a modern pop music icon. His fingerprints are all over so many of the most memorable songs from the 2000s and 2010s. As one of the most influential artists of the last 15 years, his experimentation with songwriting technique and production gave rise to a new hybrid of hip-hop and R&B that’s hardwired in the DNA of today’s pop music," Genius executive Brendan Frederick explains via press release.

There's no doubt the Florida native played a major role in bringing auto-tune into the mainstream, all of while shifting the way hip-hop music sounds throughout the course of his decorated 15-year career. T-Pain follows The-Dream, Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, and DJ Premier to take part in recent Genius Level conversations.
