    After 13 years of roaming the internet, I have finally amassed enough unreleased music to make this list. Most of these, if you collect as much as I do have been heard before, but if not then you’ve found a gold mine thread.

    My conditions for this list:

    -NEVER eventually got an official release through a album, mixtape (has to be the artist’s own mixtape like what Game did for 3 years or the artist’s official DJ, like DJ Drama putting an unreleased T.I. song on his tapes/album), weekly release (No GOOD Fridays for ex.) or single release

    -Has to be in original form. No mixing in with official version. Example: Taking Eminem’s Get Money verse and throwing it on 50’s final version, it has to be just that verse if that’s how it leaked.

    -It can be the same song as the official release with a different beat that wasn’t used, as long as that beat was INTENDED to be used. A lot of 2Pac songs are good examples of this, but T.I.’s Memories Back Then is a somewhat recent example some may remember on here.

    There is a chance I cannot get a listenable link for some songs. In which case you can ask me for them via PM. If YouTube quality is trash I’m not even gonna use the links. Also if it leaked within the last week it probably won’t make this list, I’m not paying attention as much to leaks nowadays.

    25. Kanye West & KiD CuDi- Can't Look Into My Eyes
    24. Jay Electronica & The New Royales - Minutes Of Moog
    23. Young Jeezy Feat. Lil Wayne - Scared Money
    22. Dr. Dre Feat. NaS - Topless (the last leaked version)
    21. Lil Wayne Feat. Junior Reid - RappaPomPom
    20. The Game Feat. Dr. Dre & Nate Dogg - Where I’m From (OG Version)
    19. Bishop Lamont - No Stoppin Carson
    18. Future - How It Feel
    17. Snoop Dogg & Kurupt - Every Dog Has His Day
    16. KiD CuDi - Goodbye
    15. Lord Finesse - The Message
    14. Crooked I & Tech N9ne - Blammers & Burners
    13. Busta Rhymes - Your Time Has Come
    12. Lil Wayne - I Hate Love
    11. Eminem Feat. Jazmine Sullivan - Cocaine
    10. 2Pac Feat. Faith Evans - Wonder Why They Call U Bitch (OG Version)
    9. 50 Cent - You Should Be Dead
    8. OutKast - Lookin 4 Ya
    7. Warren G Feat. Nate Dogg - Regulate (Original Version)
    6. Lil Wayne - Life Of Mr. Carter

    I'm going to try to not go too slow with this list, but there is a lot to consider. With that said:

    25. Kanye West & KiD CuDi - Can't Look In My Eyes


    Oh my god. Why wasn't this finished and put on Satellite Flight or Life of Pablo? This leaked after both albums were released, and yes Kanye's unfinished verse does bring this to worst on the list, but damn. This beat and KiD CuDi's finished verse that we'd hear on Too Bad I Have To Destroy You Now is so perfect on here, this can't be ignored. The Michael Jackson samples aren't overdone imo either. Shame they vaulted this.

    I'll do my best lol

    24. Jay Electronica & The New Royales - Minutes Of Moog


    I have no idea where the f--k this came from, dug deep to find the source, but Jay Electroinca isn't showing he leaked it (doesn't mean he didn't.) But f--k where it came from, this is nice. Only beef with it is the satellite noise can get pretty damn annoying, other than that, DJ Khalil(?) did a great job. And trust me I hate Road To Pertition because of all those Jay ad-libs. Lyrically it's great for it's intent but nothing too memorable besides false hope on here.

    23. Young Jeezy Feat. Lil Wayne - Scared Money


    This is a sample of what to expect as far as Lil Wayne is concerned. Lil Wayne is the f--king king of unreleased music. "I wish a motherfucker would, I chop lumber" so simple yet effective lmao. But in all serious Boi-1da provided a beat PERFECT for these 2 and we have Jeezy and Wayne both on their element and when Jeezy is in his ELEMENT he creates his best music which is why I enjoyed TM104 a lot. Do not know why this wasn't put on TM103 but it should've. Needs another Jeezy or Wayne verse and it'd go even higher.

    22. Dr. Dre - Topless (Feat NaS)

    https://audiomack.com/song/chadkiser502/topless?t=14
    Couldn’t find a YouTube link for this version so this will do. Sometime 2 years another version of Topless appeared, which originally leaked in 2009, pissed Dr. Dre the f--k off and blessed us with a heavenly beat and a godly NaS verse (I can appreciate the hook too). I think Sly and Slim The Mobster worked on the hook. T.I. did a ghost verse which was one of the first times I ever heard anything like that, Crack a Bottle had a leak like that too. UNFORTUNATELY we got a finished Crack a Bottle and a never finished Topless. The Dr. Dre version I put up I think is the best version only because it’s in his own voice and while T.I. did a great verse, I have a terrible time hearing it with Dr. Dre’s voice. And Eminem’s attempt was good but the flow was meh. Had this song ever got finished though, it would’ve been a classic. Too bad. Btw this is the ONLY Detox leak you’re gonna see from me. Popped Off was on a GOAT T.I. tape so that won’t count and I don’t have a full Die Hard. Miss me with that Zoidberg sounding shit on Mr. Prescription, though that could’ve been fixed if Dre wasn’t too damn stubborn.

    Cautiously in to see the rest of your list.

    I'd play devil's advocate though and say that there is normally a reason the song is only ever a leak rather than an official release.

    Yeah but mostly because of sample issues or bad taste

    I'll give you the sample issues! But bad taste shouldn't stop an artist making money from it, it's very easy in this day and age for artists to know the general reaction to a leaked song.

    21. Lil Wayne - RappaPomPom (Feat. Junior Reid)


    Originally recorded in 2006 (Like Father Like Son era Wayne), this song samples a Junior Reid classic of the same name (with RappaPom spelled RappaPam). The wordplay on this is :emoji_radioactive:. StreetRunners leaked it at some point in 2010, but this is another one of those why wasn’t on the album songs from Wayne’s vault? It’s sickening to me.

    I’m f--king heated I was going to use Monsters In My Head but Game threw that on the candy Coronas mixtape. f--king shit. Well there is one other Game song that’s worthy of this list...

    20. The Game Feat. Dr. Dre & Nate Dogg - Where I’m From (OG Version)


    Now I already know there’s gonna be some Game fan on here asking why I didn’t pick something like Bang Along, Nightmares, Murda, Gutter, Red Bandana, etc I could go on. But this is a travesty. Dr. Dre could’ve been on Game’s DEBUT album and this would’ve been the best song for him to hop on for a verse. I really don’t like how they used Snoop for just the Remix of West Side Story (it was the original) when he would’ve made a lot more sense on that than 50. But eh, final product for that still worked. When it comes to Where I’m From however, the record feels more... complete with Dre than without. Don’t know the logic behind this getting vaulted at all.

    2Pac is a very unique situation because he has so many “original versions” it was a real pain to separate the bootlegs from the accappellas with fan made beats from the real. YouTube is not always your friend with finding original 2Pac material which is why I check the 2Pac forums to figure it out

    19. Bishop Lamont - No Stopping Carson


    If you know my posting past, I’m huge on Aftermath’s discography and a huge Bishop Lamont fan (we exist bitches!!!). Bishop Lamont’s “The Reformation” album as originally intended has here and there leaks like this song and Grow Up (he made it a single despite Dre not wanting him to), No Stoppin Carson fits the theme he was going for perfectly. From the beat to the lyrics you could tell Bishop was hungry and probably was already finished. Unfortunately all we ended up with was mixtapes (which were street albums that were really good) and sneaking some songs we weren’t supposed to hear. No Stoppin Carson was the first song I heard from him and besides a MySpace post he never released it. There are other songs out there that didn’t get put on anything like Friends and his song with John Mayer (it’s real) but none of it compares to this. Dr. Dre on gospelish sounding beats is always welcomed by me btw
