T-Pain drops ‘T-Wayne’, the long-awaited collaborative album with Lil Wayne

After a tease that came out nearly a decade ago, 'T-Wayne' finally surfaces.

T-Pain has released ‘T-Wayne’, a long-awaited and probably forgotten mixtape in collaboration with Lil Wayne.

The mixtape is eight tracks long in total but what makes this release unique is that T-Pain actually recorded and teased this mixtape back in 2009.

Earlier today (May 18), T-Pain announced that he was going to release something that he had on his computer. He tweeted: “These the lost files from ’09 and I’m tired of em just sitting on my hard drive”.

Not long after that, T-Wayne appeared on Soundcloud. This project is a time capsule of a bygone era but doesn’t hint at any new solo projects from the respective artists.
