On May 26, T.I. will report to Forrest City Minimum-Security Federal Prison in Arkansas to begin his sentence on federal weapons charges. On this brand new single, Tip assures fans that he’ll be spending the whole year-and-a-day preparing for his return in 2010, and asks that they Remember Me. Mary J. Blige handles the hook and bridge, driving T.I.‘s point home with the passionate vocals fans have come to know and love, and Polow Da Don turns up the synths and percussion for an epic sound that you most definitely can’t create on GarageBand. Set for inclusion on September’s Paper Trail: Case Closed re-release, Remember Me showcases the rapper’s positivity and resilience in the face of adversity. Hold ya head, Tip—fans in the Booth and beyond will be anxiously awaiting your return!
