His latest single featuring Kevin Gates is set to be released Friday.

T.I. shared a preview of his upcoming single, "Active" featuring Kevin Gates on his Instagram account. The song accompanied a video highlighting moments from the Legendz of the Streetz Tour. Beginning back in February, the tour included a handful of other hip-hop heavyweights like Jeezy, 2-Chainz, and Jadakiss. Its last stop will be at the Barclays on April 23rd. The post is captioned "Got active this weekend" followed by song details and a note about being in Vegas for a performance at Jimmy Kimmel's Comedy Club.

The Instagram preview is the first release of the song since its premiere on Atlanta's V-103 radio station. Produced by the "Back In Blood" beatmaker, Turn Me Up YC, "Active" might be on the Atlanta rapper's final album, Kill The King. T.I. announced the album and his retirement at the end of the video for his last single, "What It's Come To". In a 2017 interview with The Breakfast Club, T.I. revealed that he would release three more albums before he puts the mic away for good. Since then, we got the albums Dime Trap and The L.I.B.R.A. which puts Kill The King on track to be the rapper's big finale.

T.I., who's been the topic of various controversies in recent months, says that his "King Of The South" moniker has put a target on his back. He revealed to TMZ that fellow Atlanta rapper Big Boi warned him about labeling himself The King. He cautioned, "Life is a game of chess, and the name of the game is called Kill The King. That’s what you are setting yourself up for." Thus the ATL actor's final album.

T.I. told The Breakfast Club that he's ready to "get the hell outta here". In an interview with the Big Facts Podcast, he admitted, "I just don't care about the sh*t other motherf****** out here care about. When I went to prison and came home I learned what was important."
