"The best Hip Hop tracks that were never officially released"


          

a conversation on the Outlawz made me think of 'Driving down the Freeway' , an absolute classic from Young Buck that was produced by Hi-Tek and features Dion (where the hell is this dude BTW?) and said Outlawz.

I love that joint and a couple of years back i was hanging around in our local Hip Hop bar when an inconspicuous Tek came in for a drink. i urged the bartender to put on Drivin down the freeway and as soon as the intro hit Hi-teks eyes got big and he ran to the bartender "How did you get this joint?? it was never released!!"
I think there were some issues with sample clearance, but it made me wonder..

In a genre where mixtapes, white labels, bootlegs, shelved projects and digging is all a big part of the culture, what are some of the best Hip Hop joints that never saw the daylight officially?

here are some of my picks:

Young Buck ft. the Outlawz & Dion - Driving down the Freeway (Hi-Tek)
