Who was supposed to be on that song?

I got the idea for this thread while reading this....
Inspectah Deck: Well I can tell you that I went to LA with Meth and Red. Meth and Red were going to meet up with Snoop and Tha Dogg Pound so we went over there and got the Maiden on. Snoop kicked my ass in Iron Maiden, Kurupt and Daz were there, just hanging out, Lady of Rage came over, even RBX , ... there was a few people over there and we were about to get it in, you know, I was the uninvited guest, I just happened to be there, Meth and Red were actually there to do the song with Daz & Kurupt and being that I was there I was able to get involved with it. Daz made the beat in a hot 15 minutes, Kurupt rolled up some of that sticky. We were just in there having fun and next thing I know, Daz was like: ” Yo, Deck you got something?” I had a verse on hand that actually suited the beat so I went in. From what I understand right after that happened, Pac got signed to Deathrow and he had come over and he heard the song and he wanted to get it from Daz. From what I heard, when Pac got the song, The Lady of Rage got taken off, RBX got taken off and I supposedly also got taken off. But instead of them taking off my verse, they left the adlibs so I don’t know if that was done on purpose or not, all I know is that I recorded a song with Daz and next thing I know 2Pac had it. Some people say he Debo’ed it, some people say Daz gave it to him, ... I can’t call it. For the most part man, I am just happy they left my adlibs there because people know that I was there. It’s not like it was a typo or something, I was actually there in the house when that was being recorded. It’s just that my verse didn’t make it on there somehow, who knows but hey, I’m still there, you hear “INS The Rebel” loud and clear .

    Flesh N Bone was taken off of Notorious Thugs.

    He was there for the session but I think Puff or Big didn't like his part.

    Q-Tip was originally supposed to be on Left and Right by D'Angelo, but he got replaced by Method Man and Redman because nobody was feeling Tip's verse..

    D'Angelo was originally on The Roots' hit single Break You Off, but he was replaced by Musiq Soulchild..



    The original version is pretty good imo..

    Common was originally supposed to be on Nas's "Fried Chicken" instead of Busta.

    Lauryn Hill was supposed to be on "Rule" from Stillmatic instead of Amerie

    Notorious BIG was supposed to be on two records that he never had a chance to record.

    Twins with Fat Joe, Big Pun took his spot and the rest was history.

    T.O.N.Y with Capone N Nore

    Is there an original song with everybody we can hear?

    I read somewhere that Jay Z was supposed to be on Why You Hate The Game, but he turned it down. So it became just Game and Nas. I guess when Game said "I alley oop to Jigga" that was when Jay was to come in. Would have been dope.

  • ohhhlaohhhla Posts: 10,341 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Wasn't Jay on the "Oh Boy" but deleted the verse because it was that trash?
