    Sometimes you hear a snippet or a low quality version of a song that later ends up getting leaked or dumped on a site like YouTube or SoundCloud and never sees an official streaming release. Many factors can go into why these songs never see the real light of day (Sample Clearance/Beef with Collaborators/Artist losing interest in the songs/etc.) but some just don't sit right why they never saw real releases. List some songs you were surprised never got real releases and maybe theorize why it never dropped.

    This has always alluded me as a Carti fan. This was, at the time, the most hyped snippet for his debut project. People begged for this and the snippet vids for this song used to do crazy numbers (on top of the song being great old Carti). At the time, Carti hadn't released a song officially in approximately a year and leaks were becoming much more prevalent in his career. Carti had ample time to drop this song though, and eventually, A$AP Illz did end up dropping the song on his SoundCloud for the fans. Some other factors that may have impacted this is that the beat had been used by many other SoundCloud artists at the time and specifically ThouxanbanFauni who was a close Carti affiliate. Still bothers me this gem never got an official release.

    This one is a lil more straightforward why it never saw an official release but because the interest in the song was so large, and just going off the YouTube and SoundCloud numbers, it was a huge shocked it never dropped. TM88 and SupahMario were beefing around the time this song was going to be released and TM88 has stated multiple time Atlantic did not want to pay either producer for the beat. Uzi, like always, quickly lost interest in the song and moved on but its crazy to me that none of them were willing to budge and let this gem really see the shine it deserved. Song even got a Marshmello remix before there was any plan to release it. TM88 eventually caved and dropped it on his SoundCloud (and did his best to filter down the SupahMario tag ) but still this was one of Uzi's most anticipated 2016 songs and the fact it never got an official release is a shame.

    Drop any other songs in the thread you feel got shafted.

    Demonstrate by Jojo. Song had potential to be big in R&B but was never released by the worst label of all-time Blackground

    This one always blew me too man, its a full song and would have been a perfect fit for Almighty So and the fact it never got released still confuses me so much.

    Leakers f***ed this one up royally. Originally the sample was ready to be cleared but after the leak happened and Nudy promoted the song on his IG, the artist who made the sampled song got hurt and decided to not allow it to release. If they would have waited it would have dropped on Sli'merre.

    Fun fact: Pi'erre reworked the song on a different beat without the sample but it was just not the same at all

    OGxTP (Jetsons manager) and I think Pi'erre even said that the artist who made the song thought Nudy was trying to pull one over on him by purposefully leaking the song to not pay him so any negotiations to get a real release were dropped immediately.

    That's so sad for nudy. Love his music but he would be massive if that song was truly released

    Yeah this one is just a huge headscratcher. I think the issue was that Uzi was still going through his label issues and that year only dropped New Patek because there was such a massive interest in the song already so it was easy to back an official release for that. But Uzi always loses interest in his songs quickly after release so if it goes in any sort of wait state before release, its basically dead in the water.

    The fact that they had the gall to name that abomination Dolly on Teccas project is just the biggest slap in the face to the fans cause they took out any mention of Dolly and Thugs family in the official release.

    Edit: Another quick note, they had to remake the beat for the Tecca version so unless Uzi lost the beat, its likely the Producer may have blocked this one

    I love this song, one of Kodaks best loosies, but this was during that weird period where he was dropping tons of loosies on YouTube that never found their way on streaming. Could be some external factors why, especially cause Kodak basically puts anything on streaming now that isnt a throwaway for the fans, but yeah the fact this never made its way onto a project or streaming is a sin.

    Skrilla makes even less sense since that one was already a bonified hit, 100% should have been dropped on streaming as a single.

    I mean fortunately or unfortunately, Wayne was still finalizing the album and it would have been weird to drop a full project of leaks right before what would be his biggest project of all time. So I def understand why many didn't see the light of day but the fact that they never dropped after the fact is confusing.

    Was an easy contender for OP, wasn't their some producer drama behind the scenes or was this just another classic Thug making a great song and just sitting on it forever?
