Only Half of the ‘T-Wayne’ Mixtape Is Actually Unreleased Material

The collaborative Lil Wayne and T-Pain project, T-Wayne, was something that hip hop fans waited eight years to hear. So when it dropped out of nowhere yesterday, everyone collectively lost their god damn minds. Including us.

But when we really started listening to the collection on SoundCloud there was something oddly familiar about some of the songs.

Despite T-Pain telling us on Twitter that “These the lost files from ’09 and I’m tired of em just sittin on my hard drive,” four of the eight tracks were not “lost” or unreleased. In fact, they were uploaded to YouTube by others years ago.





These songs can be found on older Lil Wayne projects. “Waist of Wasp,” was titled “Beehive Waist” on Lil Wayne’s 2010 Space Jam Martian mixtape. T-Pain’s collection included “Damn Damn,” also off of Space Jam,  but retitled as “Damn Damn Damn.” The opening track for T-Wayne, “He Rap He Sang” was on Lil Wayne’s 2009 collaborative mixtape with Juelz Santana. “Snap Your Fingaz” was on 2009’s Weezy Effect 2, which has gone Bronze on Dat Piff.

However, the songs “Listen To Me,” “Oh Yeah” “Breathe” and “Heavy Chevy” all seem to have surfaced for the first time yesterday.

Of course with the current reality of the music industry—one filled with actual leaks, artist-approved leaks, random shit floating on SoundCloud, unofficial mixtapes and *winky face* unofficial mixtapes—things get murky when trying to define terms like “unreleased” or “lost.”

Does the fact that these tracks are said to come directly from T-Pain’s hard drive, and that he’s taking credit for putting them out there, make them their first official release? That’s your call. But damn, it sure sounds good hearing classic Wanye and Pain together again.
