Love him or hate him, T-Pain is a hard working man in the music business. He’s already got a new album coming out this year titled Thr33 Ringz. He’s also been featured on more than a few singles this year with a variety of artists in the rap and R&B worlds and he’s already building buzz for the upcoming T-Wayne collaboration with Lil Wayne.
“T-Wayne is an entity that’s just gonna take over a side of the game,” Pain told MTV recently. “It’s two artists that done collaborated with every artist in the industry except each other. Being that we getting together, this T-Wayne movement is getting crazy.”
He went on to explain that even though they both have incredibly busy schedules, they are taking time to make sure the T-Wayne album begins taking shape as they continue recording away from one another.
“He’s sending me blank tracks, I’m sending him blank tracks. 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.”
Fans of the two or those anticipating the collab album will not really have to wait for work from the pair. They have already worked together on Wayne‘s Tha Carter III and they have a single coming out for Thr33 Ringz. Pain spoke on their most recent duet, the first official single off of his album, a track called “Can’t Believe It.”
“‘Can’t Believe It,’ I just wanted to simplify things. Basically I got a lot of stuff on my albums that’s not that simple. I’m not getting away from the simplicity of things, it’s just basically a way to calm things down. Then I put Wayne on it and he keeps murdering tracks I’m sending him. It’s just another world, it’s unexplainable.”
