In 2017, Lil Wayne and T-Pain collaborated and released the album T-Wayne. The album contained eight songs and the two rap superstars dropped it as a surprise release for free in May of that year. It sounds like another one is on the way, as T-Pain publicly announced that they are working on a followup called T-Wayne 2.
The interview was with Ebro Darden on Beats 1 Radio and T-Pain dropped the news while he was promoting his brand-new album 1UP. Much like T-Wayne, 1UP was also a surprise release but this time it wasn't for free.
The first T-Wayne album was a nice surprise but followed years of the two rappers collaborating together on each other's albums. In 2008, the two men worked together on Three Ringz with the double-platinum single, "Can't Believe It." The same year, they worked together on Lil Wayne's album Tha Carter III with another double-platinum single, this time "Got Money."
They even have a song together on 1UP titled "Goat Talk," so that might be where the two men decided to start working together again. They have always kept in touch, and T-Pain even told Ellen Degeneres this week that Lil Wayne was one of the only people who realized that he was portraying the Monster on the TV show "The Masked Singer," which T-Pain won.
T-Pain is on tour starting later this month and has some big shows coming up, including a Los Angeles concert at The Novo with Abby Jasmine (Tickets). Lil Wayne also has a monster concert coming up in Los Angeles at the STAPLES Center on June 21 with Nicki Minaj, Tory Lanez, Trippie Redd, and Bri Steves (Tickets).
