It seems like T-Pain has put his album Stoicville on hold and is set on releasing a new project this week. The Nappy Boy CEO spoke to VIBE about his upcoming mixtape which will be hosted by DJ Drama and DJ Trendsetter. Pain said that he’s had at least 30 brand new songs ready to go before he even approached the DJs. He also revealed that one of the songs off The Iron Way will feature the late Aaliyah.
“I actually have Aaliyah on a song,” T-Pain Told VIBE. “These are vocals people never heard before. They were actually doing an Aaliyah album a few years ago. They told me do two songs and I could pick one to keep.”
The song “Girlfriends” is said to be slower than average but is far from a ballad. The mixtape will also include appearances from the likes of Bun B, Big K.R.I.T., Big Cash from Nappy Boy, and Shawn J from Field Mob. Look out for the mixtape to drop this Friday, March 27th.
