Lord knows we can have no shortage of debates about T-Pain‘s musical skills and place in the game, but two things can’t be debated: the man makes hits, and the man has a truly hilarious sense of humor. Case in point, new leak Hoes & Ladies, a lightly bouncing cut that finds Pain formally adopting the name jokingly used to describe his seemingly ceaseless collaborations with Lil Wayne, T-Wayne, and as if that wasn’t enough, recruiting Smoke (of Field Mob fame) to throw down a more than capable hook. Setting the sonic stage is producer Young Fyre, who puts together exactly the kind of hypnotizing beat we associate with T-Pizzle, but the real story here is the dialogue of the main actors. Pain laces his half-rapped, half-sung flow with more than a couple laugh out loud lines (I haven’t heard an itty bitty titty committee reference since middle school), while the recently un-incarcerated Weezy follows with a less comically inclined but equally “he just said what?” guest verse. Expect Pain’s upcoming mixtape, prEVOLVEr, the prelude to his long-delayed RevolveR album, to include plenty more spit-take worthy songs when it drops “soon.”
