With their two most recent collaborations gaining airplay and chart positions, T-Pain and Lil Waynes 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.
Thats going down. Heavily, T-Pain told AllHipHop.com, promising that this project wont go the way of other rumored superstar collaborations.
Weve already got like 25 songs, T-Pain revealed. Its 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 Wests 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 theyve had with hit singles like DJ Khaleds Im So Hood and more recently Got Money and Cant 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 aint 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, itll 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 weve got [and say]: Here you go world. T-Wayne project. Right up. For free.
