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”.
This ain't for y'all new niggas. These the lost files from '09 and I'm tired of em just sittin on my hard drive. #FreeC5
