I know many people were disappointed in this project because we were told things about the album that in the end didn't happen. We've had those discussions a lot though so this thread is not to bash anyone but to be discuss what may exist in the vaults, at the end of the day we got some fire music on the project and there's a lot of people involved in each track (labels, each member, producer) so why some tracks didn't make the final cut we can only speculate about. But let's get it into it!
I mix music myself and I noticed some cutting in the songs, in Run Mayne at the end as an example, I wonder if there was more verses to some of the songs? It could also be that this just ended early and that they copied the hook or something but it's still interesting. I hear this in We Are during hooks as well, again it could just be that there were empty verses between the ones on the retail version. But here's the thing - the We Are version released also didn't include Layzie saying "Krayzie, Layzie, Bizzy, Wish & Flesh" in the hook like he did in the snippets! And Puppet Masters has a Bizzy verse for a fact, the already released version with Layzie & Flesh was put on the album but in the snippets there was a part of Bizzy's verse.
It also seemed as if Rob (who played a big part in mixing the album if I'm not mistaken) knew pretty much what was out and what was not so that makes me wonder why some tracks already released were put on the album. It could be also be thought of as a "best of the unreleased" type album if you know what I mean so it's not wrong to put songs already leaked on the album, sometimes I got to remember that I'm a die hard BTNH fan and that most of their fans probably didn't almost any of the songs on there (Except most of y'all that made it onto this forum ofc ) but I'm just speculating on why this happened when there is so much stuff that's not leaked, which even was included in the snippets.
The thing I wanted most from that project was Flesh’s Handle The Vibe verse!!! WHY couldn’t they at least released the verse by itself so we could add it on ourselves? We heard the cdq quality (at least really good quality) so SOMEONE has it. And thanks for sharing those clips.... man Bone’s Vault Music is just collecting dust - THROW THAT STUFF UP ON BANDCAMP - A lot of artists have unreleased and alternate music up there.
All i can say about it is "fuck this bitch ass project" i was one of the firsts who pre-ordered that cd and i never recieved it, i also remember that a admin from btnhboard got 20 copies of it or even more.....i was so pissed when i found that out.
wow.. never heard that "Pump Pump" Bizzy snippet. That unrelased Bizzy verse sounds way better than what we got even though the album version is pretty dope and sounded rushed.
I do agree that the project could have been better. We got a lot of fillers and i feel that songs like Thug Luv could have been mixed way better. Also i hate that they didn't release the music that was promised.
Whatever. I'm not complaining. I hope he does come out with a 2nd project. I am one of the lucky ones who did receive their copy.
I bet they could not get all the rights from Ruthless. Either way, I appreciate the album a lot more now than I did when it came outt. I would love to see a vol 2, even though I doubt it will ever happen.
Damn I havent heard those in years man...thanks. Dont think I ever heard that version of Pump Pump tho.
I’ve been thru this a million times but ill say it again. I feel if they really cared about the fans they would just release all this stuff for free. Now dont get me wrong I have no problem paying for it...especially the stuff from the golden era Id actually rather pay for it! But its been over 20 years and it seems like they cant work out a deal with Ruthless and/or the producers so they can sell the material and get paid. So if thats the case just release it for free...that way you cant be sued and at least your fans get to enjoy your hard work. I know if it were me id definitly want to get paid for it...but if I cant make that happen id rather at least put it out for the fans opposed to letting it sit and collect dust never to be heard and enjoyed. What good does that do?
