U know how when on a tracklisting the song will say clean or dirty, certain rappers have been noted as having terminology that is in direct reference to their music exclusively...

For example, when the wu releases some shit, and there is a dirty version of the single, sometimes it says some shit like "Bloody version" ... and the same thing with Pac, when he releases shit, if it was a song recorded pre-death row they label it an "OG" track ... this type of shit is hilarious 2 me ... anyone know any other instances?

The song M-E-T-H-O-D Man had like:




regular version
radio version
bloody version
kung-fu version
smoked out version
etc....etc



the idea of making so many versions is stupid in this day and age. Back when people actually bought vinyl or singles it made sense.

I think the concept could work for mp3 sales in the iTunes store or alternative music destinations but.....





todays consumers are probably too stupid to understand such a concept
most people wouldn't value a limited version
the idea of scarcity is thrown out the window with p2p sharing & digital formats

lol, yeah...

have seen this many times over the years and yes it's pretty much a Hip-Hop thang....

more examples are "Blunted mix", "Chillout mix" etc., etc.,

feel lucky to have grown up wit all that...wax and whatnot...
