"We can't believe it either:" T-Pain creates fake university called "Wiscansin University"

Web site plugs new clothing line

MILWAUKEE – Remember roughly ten years ago, when rappers T-Pain and Lil Wayne changed Wisconsin’s name to “Wiscansin” to make it rhyme with "mansion" in the song “Can’t Believe It?"

Well, that rhyme is making a comeback as a fake university to launch a new clothing line.

(We can't believe it either).

T-Pain made the announcement Friday on Twitter.

The tweet included a link to the website which sells the new clothing line. 

The clothing line includes sweatshirts, t-shirts, and hats -- all with “Wiscansin” across the front. 

The website is not all about selling clothing though. It also includes links to the fictional university’s faculty – which lists T-Pain as the dean.

"I am honored and privileged to be the 22nd dean to lead Wiscansin University. I believe Wiscansin is truly an inspiring place, and I want to ensure that our programs continue to be poised for growth for the many years to come. I look forward to the many adventures and achievements we will embark on together."

-Tallahassee R. Pain, PhD Dean

There are also links to the fictional university's campus life, academics, and alumni – which includes many modern rappers.
