"Remember Me" was the planned first single off the re-release of T.I.'s sixth album, Paper Trail[1]; however, the re-release was eventually shelved, although the song would still be released digitally [2]. In the UK, the song was released as a single and was taken from an EP, entitled Paper Trail: Case Closed. It features Mary J. Blige. The song was officially released to urban radio the week of July 7, 2009.[3] The main message of the song is remembrance. Its original title was "Don't Forget." [4] The song is about T.I.'s jail sentence and how he wants people to remember him as he is not going to be gone forever, including the verse "By the time you hear this, I'd be half way home." It also talks about the hard times in his life and how he doesn't give up. In the song T.I. mentions Martin Luther King and Malcolm X and how he is the modern day version of them. With no promotion the single sold over 80,000 downloads in its first week, and it debuted at No. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Music video

[1][5] The video was directed by Jessy Terrero. A trailer was posted on June 15, 2009.[6] The video was released on July 13, 2009. It was released on iTunes on July 28. The beginning of the video starts where Dead and Gone left off, with T.I. being led to his prison cell. The first verse starts out with T.I. in his cell than appearing in his house to find his wife and another boy cheering about T.I. going to prison. It does this "prisoner appearing" thing 2 more times. At the end of the video T.I. leaves the prison. The video also cuts to see T.I. and Mary singing together.
