Last week, singer T-Pain shared details regarding his supposed fallout with Cash Money Records and how it affected his anticipated project with label superstar Lil Wayne. Aside from Wayne’s incarceration at the time (due to a weapons conviction in New York City) and T-Pain’s own excessive lifestyle indulgences, apparently a “miscommunication” between Cash Money label heads Birdman and Ronald “Slim” Williams and T-Pain’s own management team stalled the project.
But in a recent interview, T-Pain revealed that he still believes that the collaborative album with Wayne will happen.
A big reason for T-Pain’s renewed optimism is his renewed focus.
“I’m getting back on my music s—, so I’m pretty sure Wayne will be like, ‘I’m glad you’re back. Let’s make this happen,'” T-Pain told Rap-Up TV.
“I think it’ll happen again. I think it will,” he added. Pain and Wayne have reportedly recorded dozens of songs together. “We got a lot of songs. I always listen to them. I got them on my iPod.”
Despite the fact that most of the recordings are at least five years old, T-Pain believes that they could be released, as is, and still fit what’s happening in music now.
“We got a lot of s— that we can still drop that’ll sound like it just happened today,” he says.
