13103181, Spinoff: Albums that have one or more songs on them NOT by the artist?
Posted by PROMO, Wed Dec-07-16 03:12 PM
This is a spinoff of my Biggie post.

Lil' Kim's Hardcore has the Lil' Cease ONLY version of Crush On You which is just weird as fuck (sidenote: what's the backstory of this and why Lil' Kim is only on the Crush On You Remix?). It's weird for two reasons: 1. it's HER album and a version of the song exists with her on it, and 2. the version with her on it is the hotter song by 1000 percent.

Anyhow, what other albums feature whole songs by someone OTHER than the artist? I feel like this has happened in rap more than I care to remember because....crew love I guess.
13103184, The Roots and Ursula Rucker comes to mind

13103187, didn't one of Beanie Sigel's albums have "Anything" by Jay Z at the end?
Posted by BigJazz, Wed Dec-07-16 03:20 PM

I ain't lyin. This shit i'm making up is true...
13103192, I think so. And one of Bleek's albums had "Dear Summer" on it
Posted by DJR, Wed Dec-07-16 03:26 PM
13103194, and "Dear Summer" is dope af
Posted by KiloMcG, Wed Dec-07-16 03:28 PM
13103744, Yup, I still play it like it just came out
Posted by DJR, Thu Dec-08-16 06:06 PM
13103203, poor Bleek. that's the best song on the album.
Posted by PROMO, Wed Dec-07-16 03:36 PM

13103211, Ghostface's "Iron Man" had two:
Posted by mrhood75, Wed Dec-07-16 03:44 PM
1. Faster Blade (Raekwon solo cut)

2. Assassination Day (Rebel INS, RZA, Raekwon, and Masta Killa)

The second one was really weird. A solo cut I understand (returns the favor that Rae paid him OB4CL), by Assassination Day has four rappers on it, none of whom are Ghost.
13103256, Two of the best joints on the album!

13103746, Yup.
Posted by 13Rose, Thu Dec-08-16 06:21 PM
Assassination Day is my favorite song on the album actually.

no true-Wu Deck solo is the biggest misstep in hip-hop history!
13103866, they wanted to show Wu tang is for the children
Posted by makaveli, Fri Dec-09-16 06:02 AM
Big Doe Rehab has Prayer, which is funny cause it's a random dude singing some kind of gospel song in the middle of the album. There is no explanation for this of course.

LS: B.I.B.L.E (Killah Priest solo)

Bobby Digital - Terrorist (Dr. Doom, PR Terrorist, and Killa Sin)

Digital Bullet - Black Widow Pt. 2 (ODB solo cut)

N%^&*a Please - Gettin' High (12 O'Clock, LA the Darkman, and Shorty Shit Stain)

So basically Wu-Tang is the king of this.

Posted by gumz, Wed Dec-07-16 08:25 PM
Doesn't Kendrick have an Ab Soul song on one of his albums too? Either Section 80 or Overly Dedicated
13103522, Yes, but Kendrick had a verse on it....
Posted by Crash85, Thu Dec-08-16 12:50 PM
I think it's called Ab-Soul's outro...

Agreed. Great tune.
13103687, I actually like the Cease only version better
Posted by silenttype, Thu Dec-08-16 04:02 PM
seems more authentic based on the actual lyrics
before they were partially changed to fit Kim's
perspective as a female..

Also- it's not really THAT strange in that they
were from the same crew and it basically makes sense
to feature one of the members as a gateway to a possible
future solo project.

Posted by Nodima, Fri Dec-09-16 11:44 PM
on Compton

just because he didn't rap on them

like nobody came to that album for his rapping until they realized the only novelty of the album was his autobiographical verses and the .Paak/Lamar features

and his voice changed so much you didn't even recognize it was him rapping until you got pretty familiar with the album

so why make a big deal out of these two artists getting songs all to themselves?

13104355, Back story on the Kim-less Crush On You
Posted by ramaj1, Sat Dec-10-16 03:25 PM
Long story short, Kim became pregnant with BIG's child, had a major toss-up between him and Lance "Un" Rivera over keeping it and just disappeared during the end of the Hard Core sessions. "Crush" was one of the last songs ...Kim never got to add her verse since she went ghost. Since the album was to close, she never got a chance to hence why the version on Hard Core is Cease only.
