Danja produced a song for Mike Jones called "Tenderoni (One and Only)," featuring Bobby Brown and T.I., but it didn't make the cut because the album, as it was supposed to be released, was shelved. We also learned that T.I. usurped the song from Mike Jones after his inability to get it released. At that time, we were treated with a snippet featuring only T.I.'s verse and the Bobby Brown chorus. Now, with the release of this track in full featuring all three artists (yes, it's here in this post), and the fact that T.I. never featured the track on any album, we can now debunk that bit of misinformation.

Where did this track come from? Well, Mike Jones, who has been known for his inclination to maintain an intimate conversation with his fan base, posted the song via Twitter last December:

Yes, this flew directly under the Danja Blog radar (and the radar of about every other rap blog... I suppose that must speak to Mike Jones' popularity). Only through an itch to hear the snippet once more was I lucky enough to find the full song on YouTube and hunt for the MP3 file.
Also, yes, there is a sample in this song:
*I've skipped over Volume 5 because of technical difficulties in that post. Hopefully we can get it up soon.
