Unreleased tracks are like those secretly cool kids at school that only a few people get to know. The ones that could have deserved to make the cut to stardom but never did.
Once in a while we get to hear unreleased tracks from heavy hitters being leaked, as was the case for Kanye West and TLOP or even getting to number 1 after being released by surprise, as was the case for Kendrick Lamar.
Other times, a badass producer showcases them in a show, just because he can. Exactly what Just Blaze did on the DJCity’s MikiDz Show last week.
Just put on an hour-long set in which he debuted another trove of songs and instrumentals from his catalog, including some never-before-heard tracks. Among them were:
• An unused track from JAY Z’s The Blueprint 3 sessions
• A preview of Jay Electronica’s “Exhibit G”
• A potential track slated for Snoop Dogg’s next album
• The original instrumental of Drake and Rick Ross’ “Lord Knows”
• An instrumental slated for Jeezy
• An instrumental from an early Slaughterhouse session
