The surprise headliner at Friday night's Fader Fort was T-Pain, who played an astonishing 42 songs to close out the evening — quite possibly the most talked about event of a packed weekend. "The reason I'm here is to remind you motherfuckers who I am," he said.

With his first album in nearly four years on the way, we followed the rapper-turned-singer around Austin for a day of interviews, soundchecking and finger-drumming in hotel hallways.
