His new Cash Money/Universal album "Tha Carter III" is only a week old, but rapper Lil Wayne is already in talks about a collaborative project with T-Pain.

The two artists have already worked together on Lil Wayne's single "Got Money," which is No. 45 this week on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

"They've been speaking on it," Cash Money head Ron "Slim" Williams tells Billboard of the album, which has no release date just yet. "I wanted to get past "Tha Carter III." Now we can sit down and get to the business of different collaborations. I just want to make sure that we have a good record."

Several years ago, Lil Wayne and rapper Juelz Santana announced plans for a collaborative album, but it never materialized. However, Santana is featured on "Tha Carter III" track "You Ain't Got Nuthin On Me," alongside rapper Fabolous.
