EXCLUSIVE: T-Pain Talks 'T-Wayne' Album With Lil Wayne

With their two most recent collaborations gaining airplay and chart positions, T-Pain and Lil Wayne’s proposed collaborative effort also continues to build momentum.

The T-Wayne project has even gained the support and involvement of several high profile producers, T-Pain told AllHipHop.com during a recent interview promoting his third studio album, Thr33 Rings.

“That’s going down. Heavily,” T-Pain told AllHipHop.com, promising that this project won’t go the way of other rumored superstar collaborations.

“We’ve already got like 25 songs,” T-Pain revealed. “It’s going down after my album drops. Could be the beginning of next year, like January/February.”

Now, with Timbaland and Pharrell Williams having voiced an interest in joining the project, T-Pain says he hopes to bring in superstar rapper/producer Kanye West.

T-Pain and West’s last major collaboration, “Good Life,” won a Grammy Award in 2008 for Best Rap Song.

Throughout the summer, both T-Pain and Lil Wayne have confirmed their desire to create a joint project, capitalizing on the success they’ve had with hit singles like DJ Khaled’s “I’m So Hood” and more recently “Got Money” and “Can’t Believe It,” from Tha Carter III and Thr33 Ringz respectively.

However, T-Pain says the project may be delayed by label red tape, especially if all three multi-platinum producers get involved.

But ultimately, T-Pain says he is determined to deliver the project to the fans.

“If anything, we ain’t making no goals [for the date],” T-Pain told AllHipHop.com. “If we really gotta do it as an album and all those labels gotta work together, it’ll come out like, two years from now. [So] if it just falls into a bunch of leaks or if it falls into a mixtape, [that ’s fine]. We might just take the songs we’ve got [and say]: ‘Here you go world. T-Wayne project. Right up. For free.”
