T-Pain Named His New Mixtape After Heath Ledger

Hey, T-Pain, what's with the title of your new mixtape? "It's going to be called The Heath Ledger Project because that’s how much I love music," T-Pain tells Rap-Up. "That’s how much passion I have for music. I want to master my craft like [Ledger] tried to do before he died." Go on ... "Well, you know how he died. He kind of went crazy because he was so into being the Joker. After they finished shooting [The Dark Knight], he couldn’t stop being the Joker. I think he went so crazy trying to master his craft that he died for what he loved doing. He died mastering his craft." T-Pain really does not read Wikipedia very closely, we fear.
