Songfacts®:

  • This song was released by T.I. two months after he started a 366-day jail sentence for felony weapons charges. The Atlanta rapper recorded this goodbye-for-now anthem with the express purpose of letting his fans know that the King may be gone, but he'll be back to reclaim his hip hop crown.
  • The American R&B and hip-hop artist Mary J. Blige sings the song's hook.
  • The song was originally titled "Don't Forget."
  • This was originally intended to be the lead single for the re-released version of Paper Trail. However the release plans for the new version of the album were shelved and this song was instead released digitally.
  • The video was also filmed before T.I. began his prison term. Jesse Terrero (G-Unit, Don Omar and Daddy Yankee) directed the clip.
