    To only release finished songs or to release unfinished songs that didnt make the album?

    Tyler The Creator has been releasing some demos that he has laying around and it made me think, why dont artists release demos of songs that got cut? I get if there is a legal issues, but we rarely see any artists actually release demos or cut songs

    Do you all think it could be damaging to release them? Or is it stupid that they dont?

    I think it just depends on the artist's perspective. Some people are perfectionists and wouldn't release anything unfinished, other people don't care as much and just want to share ideas.

    Except in some specific circumstances, I'm not particularly interested in hearing unfinished work. I might listen once or twice out of curiosity, but they aren't something I go back to often.

    So if the artist who made your most wanted unreleased song released it and it was great, just not mixed 100% or had a few mumbles, you wouldnt listen to it?

    I don't have any most wanted unreleased songs, I don't really pay attention to that. But as I said I do listen to demos if they drop, but not repeatedly.

    Prolly boutta catch some flak but I’d really love to hear some of the old/unfinished EminemX50 Cent songs that surely have been made.
