Rapper T-Pain is adamant his collaborative album with Lil Wayne has not been scrapped - insisting the project is merely on hold until his hip-hop pal is released from prison.
The pair has long been rumored to be making a record together after they teamed up in 2008 and released a mix-tape under the name T-Wayne. But an album never surfaced - prompting rumors the project had been scrapped.
However, T-Pain insists the record will be released eventually, but not until Wayne finishes his year-long prison sentence.
He tells MTV.com, "The T-Wayne album, we're actually gonna wait until he gets out (of prison). He has so much going on. He has Rebirth out right now. I don't wanna interrupt that. We just gonna wait until he gets out to really get in on that. We recorded a bunch of songs. But, right now, it's time for him and his personal s**t. We definitely got an album's worth of material."
And T-Pain is adamant Wayne's stint behind bars on weapons possession charges, which he began on Monday, won't affect his highly successful career.
He adds, "You still gonna get 1,000 songs from Wayne. You ain't gonna miss nothing. It's gonna be like he never went to jail. I'm pretty sure they're gonna put out a gang of songs. I'm pretty sure they're gonna do a Free Lil Wayne campaign. That's how it goes."
