"Notty Black"

Notty Black, born Seldrick Johnson, is a native Tallahasseean who started rapping with T-Pain's original group, Da Nappy Headz.

In 2007, after T-Pain signed with Jive Records, Notty Black recorded "Freaky Song" with the help of T-Pain, and before long it was being played on 90.5 WANM-FM.

Notty Black joined the Southern Swagga Tour with MJG, Khujoe Goodie (of Goodie Mob) and Pastor Troy in 2008.

Freaky Song ft T-Pain (NEW VERSION)



“It’s always a good feeling when one of your close associates goes “major.” But it can get even better when that same associate uses their hit power to help you “get on” too. Notty Black, a member of the Tallahassee rap group, Nappy Headz, knows exactly how that feels and his new single, Freaky Song, is the evidence why. Nappy alumnus and worldwide sensation, T-Pain, returns to the Tally and has clearly saved some of his best work (both on the hook and the production) for his back home friend. If Freaky Song can use T-Pain to get spins everywhere Hip Hop slow jams are played, two Tallahassee natives might soon be living the “good life.” (By M.Burny –
Born Seldrick Johnson in Tallahassee, Florida his first foray into the music industry was a productive one. He was one-fifth of the rambunctious rap outfit Da Nappy Headz who enjoyed moderate success in the early 2000's with regional anthems "Robbery" and "F.L.A". But after the group's flame burned out each member decided to focus on solo careers. In 2005, R&B hook master T-Pain landed a deal with Jive Records and immediately returned home to sign his former group mates Da Nappy Headz to his Nappy Boy imprint. In 2006, the group disbanded again. In the winter of 2007, Notty Black decided to use one of the many hooks and beats that T-Pain produced for him which just so happened to be “Freaky Song”. Immediately after recording the song, close friend and manager Peners “P.L.” Griffin rushed the song to WANM 90.5 personality Dee –Dee Rock. Soon after, the song was added to the playlist. Within a month the song had made its way on to numerous charts, blogs, mixtapes, internet and radio stations. After hearing about the success of Freaky Song – labels immediately begin calling including longtime friend and former group member T-Pain who offered to sign Notty as a solo act to his Nappy Boy Imprint.
