Rapper and songwriter Faheem Rasheed Najm, better known as T-Pain has been streaming on Twitch for months now and has announced  he’s letting streamers use his beats along with some of his newer songs for free.

With ongoing world events keeping folks indoors, the 34-year-old artist has taken to the world of streaming and making lit tracks in the process. On June 15 he decided that streamers everywhere should be able to experience his songs and beats.

According to T-Pain, streamers can use any of his songs from the past two-three years, but anything before that is off-limits as other companies such as Sony have money involved.

“You’ll never see an artist do that sh*t,” he said, referencing DMCA takedown requests. “We get more hype than ya’ll do when we hear our sh*t on your streams. Especially if it’s a clip where you’re beasting crazy.”

The iconic rap artist even mentioned that if a streamer gets a nuke in Call of Duty while his song is playing, he’s reposting the clip himself.

This is a big deal for streamers wanting to use music during their own broadcasts but have been wary on doing so ever since Twitch received a massive influx of DMCA takedown requests with music from 2017-2019.

During the livestream, a viewer named Aaron popped into T-Pain’s chat and suggested he let streamers use the beats for free – something the songwriter agreed to right away.

“That’s what I’m doing. That’s what I’m doing for you, motherf**kers!” the artist exclaimed. “All these beats I’ve made, I’m gonna give these sh*ts to y’all so y’all can use them on y’all streams.”

According to T-Pain, he will be making a massive folder and website so streamers can come in and download them for use during their own broadcasts.

“You got my f**king blessing!” he said to every fellow streamer watching, wanting to use the tracks for themselves.

“Aaron came through with a godd*mn master plan for the man!” he added. “Anyone of these beats you want to use on your stream, I’m going to make a website just for this sh*t.”

The rapper proudly added that anything streamers want to use, they can: “I’m making beats for streamers.”

It’s unclear what the website will be called, but for anyone wanting to fresh tracks to play while streaming, T-Pain has got you covered in a big way.

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

xQc has over four million followers on Twitch.

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
