T-Wayne Album 12 Tracks In, Says T-Pain
The long-discussed T-Wayne album, pairing a now-rock-obsessed Lil Wayne and R&B hookmaster T-Pain, is still a priority despite being a work in progress, according to T-Pain.
“We got 12 songs right now,” Pain told MTV News. “We going slow; there’s no rush. It can come out whenever. We’re gonna keep it pushing, however. It’s gonna be pushed.”
The collaborative effort, first conceived last summer amidst success of the singles “Got Money” and then “Can’t Believe It, ” has been put on the back burner since the two stopped touring together during this past winter’s “I Am Music” tour.
“He’s sending me blank tracks, I’m sending him blank tracks,” T-Pain told MTV last year as the project was in its infancy. “He’s sending me tracks with hooks, I’m sending him tracks with hooks. It’s just our hectic schedules are keeping us from recording. … But we both have studios on the bus. So we take that tour bus anywhere we go — it’s a done deal.”
While there’s no timetable on a solo release from T-Pain, Weezy, on the other hand, will be the next to hit shelves with his rock Rebirth, pending further delays. – Devin Chanda
