Nappy Boy Entertainment is an American record label founded by hip hop and R&B artist T-Pain.[1] The label is distributed by RCA Records, and formerly by Jive Label Group. The label's roster of artists includes Gym Class Heroes front man Travie McCoy, Young Cash, Sixxmann, Mandel (Manny G), and Lil Westside.

In May 2008, T-Pain announced that he would like to turn Nappy Boy Entertainment into a new business venture which would turn his company digital, by releasing albums and songs online via iTunes.[citation needed] The new venture, Nappy Boy Digital, focuses on albums and songs released as downloads and ringtones, with few physical releases.[2][3]

Featured in the Nappy Boy logo is the Florida State Capitol representing Tallahassee, Florida, where T-Pain was born.
