Looks like a few of those are from Nastradamus too.

The only compilation albums those appeared on is from people who made em themselves as mixtapes or online. The Original form these songs came out as were on bootleg 12" vinyl and DJ Clue tapes just b4 the album dropped in the late 90's. I speak from the perspective of witnessing the I Am leaks living in NY at the time, I don't know about the rest of the world.

Billboard is usually good for official album tracklistings:


Poppa Was a Playa, Drunk By Myself & U Gotta Love It was on Lost Tapes, Blaze A 50 was on the b-side to Hate Me Now.

there never was a definite tracklist i'm pretty sure, but some of the songs that ended up on "I Am..." and most of the songs that ended up on "Nastradamus" was never meant to have been on the album. a 13-track promo leaked and got heavily bootlegged and after that they went back to the studio to record new songs.
