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?
