T.I. duet with Mary J. Blige leaks days before he begins his prison sentence

Posted on

Multiplatinum rapper T.I., born Clifford Harris Jr., has until noon on May 26 to begin serving his year-and-a-day sentence for a federal weapons conviction, but his farewell-for-now anthem has already been leaked: the song “Don’t Forget,” a soulful downtempo duet with Mary J.Blige, hit the internet yesterday; the pair is rumored to be filming a video for the track at an undisclosed location before Harris heads to prison.

The song will appear on the upcoming re-release of last year’s Paper Trails, which will also reportedly feature a collaboration with Fall Out Boy and a Kanye West guest spot that was previously scrapped. Check out “Don’t Forget” below and tell us, will you be buying Trails‘ re-up, or is his goodbye a good riddance?
