T-Pain has been teasing his forthcoming album Stoicville: Rise Of The Phoenix for a while, but itâs still a ways off.
To hold fans over, heâs just released a free Gangsta Grillz mixtape called The Iron Way, hosted by DJ Drama and DJ Trendsetter Sense.
The Iron Way features a wideÂ array of celebrity guests, an indicator of just how long T-Painâs been in the game and how many friends heâs made.
The star-studded mixtapeÂ includes appearances from Lil Wayne , The-Dream , Bun B , OG Maco , Big K.R.I.T ., Migos , Audio Push and more, withÂ production from DJ Montay, The-Dream and T-Pain himself.
The-Dream appears on mixtape highlight âLet Ya Hair Down,â a mid-â00s style slow jam. T-Pain goes full Auto-Tune, demonstrating his mastery over the style he first popularized.
The track isnât all love songs, though. T-Pain demonstrates his range on cuts like âLet Me Through,â a hard-edged collaboration with Lil Wayne that features more rapping than singing.
