After T-Pain and Lil Wayne completed 9 tracks for a collaborative album titled T-Wayne, Lil Wayne was sentenced to prison for felony gun possession, putting the album on a indefinite hold. Today, T-Pain is releasing his new album, rEVOLVEr, which he admits took two-and-a-half years to complete. During an interview with Rap-Up TV, he explained why the collaboration with Wayne will probably never come about.
“When [Wayne] got into his little trouble, that was right at the peak of when we was like, ‘OK, let’s go. Let’s do this now.’ He finally had time, then he went to jail,” said Pain, who has about eight or nine songs in the vault. “Things happen and I’m pretty sure he’s over the whole idea now. I don’t even be bringing it up to him no more. I’m pretty sure he’s way past that right now. He’s doing big things.”
