Now this is a real #tbt. After years of collecting dust on T-Pain’s hard drive, fans finally get to hear the mythical Lil Wayne collaboration project appropriately titled T-Wayne. Recorded in 2009, the LP features T-Pain singing and trading bars with Wayne throughout the eight songs. If you can manage to put on your ’09 lenses, it’s clear that both these guys missed out on some easy money by not dropping this at the height of Wayne’s popularity. And considering the hashtags T-Pain included in his tweet, we can likely place the blame squarely on Birdman’s shoulders.

Stream the entire album below. While we’re at it, someone tell Juelz Santana to clear out his hard drive so we can hear I Can’t Feel My Face.

T-Pain is prepping another run with new album entitle Stoicville: The Phoenix. But first, he and Juicy J enjoy the summer weather, curvy ladies and New Orleans-influenced bounce on “Make That Shit Work.”

Ne-Yo and company tribute their favorite women of the pole. Calling a stripper ode “classy” is a stretch, but this is not as raunchy as you’d expect considering the topic. T-Pain, who doesn’t have a bad natural singing voice, should have considered putting the autotune on the shelf for this one.

Living legend Quincy Jones is dropping his 37th (!) album next Tuesday (November) entitled Q: Soul Bossa Nostra. Like most of his recent LPs, it’ll be a complilation or sorts combining the best of Hip-Hop, R&B, and Pop music. The staggering guest list includes Usher, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige, T-Pain, Robin Thicke, Amy Whinehouse, LL Cool J, John Legend, Snoop Dogg, Wyclef Jean, Q-Tip, Thee Six Mafia, Bebe Winans, Mervyn Warren, Jermain Dupri, and Scott Storch.

This track with Ludacris is a reworking of Jones’ “Soul Bossa Nova.” You might remember several years ago Ludacris sampled the song for “Number One Spot,” which featured Quincy Jones in the video. This version is a much smoother rendition, R&B styled rendition. Check it out and the other versions to jog your memory.

“Brothers that weren’t into hearing coke and Colombians…”

A Tribe Called Quest is rightly revered by anyone who calls themselves a fan of Hip-Hop. But what about some individual love for Ali Shaheed Muhammad? Focus enlists Tanya Morgan members Von Pea and Donwill, and Justus League soldier Chaundon to do just that.

This joint is the latest in a song series where Focus plays homage to a Hip-Hop great. We have Twitter to thank for how Donwill got involved.

“Focus… does these homages, like, monthly and Von had put me on to ’em,” Donwill told Beats, Boxing & Mayhem. “After the RZA one dropped, I went to Twitter and said, ‘Somebody tell Focus… I want in.'”

I’m sure Ali Shaheed Muhammad is somewhere smiling. I’m loving the Midnight Marauders-styled intro.

TIMBALAND CELEBRATES LIL WAYNE’S FREEDOM

Timbaland hasn’t confirmed a start date for his Timbo Thursday series, but late tonight he appears to be giving us a little preview. This song, “Talk That,” features T-Pain and a “lost” Lil Wayne verse. I’m still hoping Timbaland drops some late 90s/early 2000s joints from Aaliyah and Missy. I can do without Magoo.
