Generic list post: album cuts that should have been singles

Not album cuts I wish had come out as 12" singles as a few of these songs actually did, but album cuts that I wish were singles so they could have been hits that all my friends who only listen to rap casually would know during our post-pub afterparties, and album cuts that I wish had been singles so they could have been blessed with videos featuring facial expressions/rap-hands/dance moves/outfits/video-chix/weed carriers & neighbourhood goons milling around in the background that would have forever altered how ya boy has engaged with them.

if it makes you feel any better, 'fuck yo couch' was a local radio hit.

At least there's some justice in the world. A Fuck Yo' Couch video with a step-by-step illustration by Bailey would have been the best thing ever.

+1 on "Pinky Ring"

Jive not letting them shoot any videos for that album is seriously SMH

Good call with the slick rick joint. The Ruler's Back was highly slept on and pretty much any song (especially side A)could have been a single.
