Explicit Version. 2008 release from the Hip Hop artist, producer and songwriter. It's evident T-Pain has another hit on his hands with the album's first single, 'Can't Believe It,' featuring Lil Wayne which is a about "getting a girl to ride with you," says T-Pain. Other tracks on the album include 'Freeze', featuring Chris Brown, an up-tempo jam that is destined to be the dancefloor hit of the year, 'Chopped & Screwed', a lyrically clever urban anthem featuring Ludacris, 'Karaoke', a personal and controversial declaration to the industry featuring DJ Khaled and 'Therapy', a collaboration with Kanye West.

Thr33 Ringz, T-Pain's third album, puts on a definite show. Even though the album was leaked about two weeks early fans should rush to the store to support this man. He can do everything including produce, rap, sing, dance, and basically make it happen. Forget that he uses a vocoder, he still has some singing ability, his rapping is actually above average, and the melodies and grooves he comes up with are as addictive as ever. He also enlists some big name guests to help him in his circus including Mary J. Blige, Ludacris, T.I., Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Ciara, Kanye West,& Diddy among others. Throughout the album though he never sounds like he's the guest. T-Pain completely steals the show.
Songs such as Blowing Up with Ciara, Freeze ft. Chris Brown, Superstar Lady ft. Young Cash, & It Aint Me ft. T.I. & Akon can really get you moving bringing some fun into the mix. T.I. especially puts a hurting on It Aint Me. T-Pain also gets down on the two singles Chopped N Screwed ft. Ludacris and Can't Believe It with Lil Wayne easily two of the best songs on the cd. Every song is a standout. Long Lap Dance is one of the signature T-Pain strip club jams and Keep Going slows it down and lets TPain show that he can really sing. Change has T-Pain singing with Mary J. Blige and Akon about changing the world and is another excellent song.
This album is an instant classic and the bonus songs (Sweet, Bad Side, Phantom and Distorted) only add to the wonder that is T-Pain. This is undoubtedly one of the best albums of the year up there with T.I.'s Paper Trail, Young Jeezy - The Recession, Devin The Dude - Landing Gear and a few others. Pick this album up ASAP especially if you like TPain or any of the singles...you won't be disappointed.
The album opens with an intro (typical T-Pain) concerning the "circus" theme of THR33 RINGZ. Following, he opens up with the enjoyable, if silly "Ringleader". However you take "Ringleader", vocally, T-Pain does sound good. Following "Ringleader", the albums sells its best track, "Chopped N Skrewed", featuring none other than Ludacris. What is most surprising is that Pain performs the song without being extremely lewd (surprising). The production is among the best I've heard on any album of 2008 and Ludacris is on top of his game (check out THEATER OF THE MIND if you haven't). Following "Chopped N Skrewed", another humorous, if pointless skit ("Take A Ride") follows. Finally, we arrive at another true album cut, "Freeze", featuring Chris Brown. It proves to be another hit, though not quite as strong as the exceptionally well done "Chopped N Skrewed". It is definitely above average.
"Blowing Up" features 'Go-Girl' Ciara herself and keeps THR33 RINGZ consistent. Then the ubiquitous radio hit "Can't Believe It" featuring an incredibly 'garbled' Lil Wayne on vocoder appears, clearly the album's lead single. Things fall off a bit after this point, but there are still a line of credible, sound performances. While "It Ain't Me" featuring Akon & T.I. isn't among the 'best of the best' it is a decent cut worthy of a couple of spins in the CD player or on the iPod. Skipping over another crazy skit, "Therapy" featuring Kanye West proves to be a strong performance by all means (I guess Kanye still raps these days...)
"Long Lap Dance" is average, while "Reality Show" featuring Musiq Soulchild, Raheem DeVaughn & Jay Lyriq (which is introduced by another ridiculous skit), is solid. "Keep Going" and "Superstar Lady" featuring Young Cash are both more filler than stellar, while the final three tracks end THR33 RINGZ almost as strongly as it started. "Change" is great featuring Diddy, Akon, and Mary J. Blige. "Digital" isn't bad either, though it is final track "Karaoke" featuring DJ Khaled that solidifies that THR33 RINGZ is an improvement over previous T-Pain albums.
True, T-Pain has more improvement to make as an artist, but THR33 RINGZ shows how much potential that "Teddy Pain" has. He's still stuck in the club to an extent, but at least he has toned down some of the "stripper talk" that pervaded his past two albums (I won't cite examples). Not perfect, but the right advancement for T-Pain in my eyes. And overall sound R&B effort. 3 ½ stars.
