When something is so close to perfect, any flaws can be a real show-stopper, much like a beautiful girl who just happens to have a third ear.

Maybe we should point the finger at cowardly weed carriers who don't have the balls to tell the bossman that they need to step it up? "Damn U-God, you killed that shit!" Whatever the reason, here are 15 Horrible Songs on Classic Rap Albums, the tracks somehow saved from the cutting room floor.
