When Rap Lyrics Get Censored, Even on the Explicit Version

Mobb Deep on "Shook Ones Part II" (1995)

Lyrics Censored: "To all the killers and a hundred dollar billas. For real [niggas] who ain't got no feelings."

Have you ever noticed that Prodigy and Havoc don't curse at all on "Shook Ones Part II"? Apparently, someone wanted to keep it that way—probably with the motive of radio play in mind—and the N-word was censored on both occasions it's mentioned in the song. Even on the final dirty version of the album.
