Prophet is an electro-funk musician from the San Francisco area, who until his debut Stones Throw album in 2018, had only released an obscure private-press LP called Right On Time(1984, Treasure Records) which to this day has a dedicated cult following. After its release,Prophet disappeared for over three decades until Stones Throw's founder Peanut Butter Wolf, a long-time fan, met him by chance encounter. Wolf introduced Prophet to Mndsgn, and together they came up with Wanna Be Your Man, released in 2018. Loud & Quiet called it "not only a fondly stitched together photo album of funk's heyday but an important release in its own right." Tyler, The Creator was also a fan, and remixed the title track into the song "Peach Fuzz." Whereas Wanna Be Your Man was a collaboration with Mndsgn, Don't Forget It is entirely self-produced. Working on his own allowed Prophet to further explore his sound palette and whittle down over a hundred songs to 16 for this record.
