There are a lot of great Hip Hop albums that never saw the light of days until years after their intended release. Large Professor’s The LP, Freddie Foxxx’s Crazy Like A Foxxx and I.n.I.’s Center of Attention to name a few.
Former Shady/Aftermath artist Stat Quo was nearly added to that list until his long delayed debut Statlanta hit shelves last summer. However, the Dream Big Ventures release was much different than the version that was supposed to come out on Shady/Aftermath years earlier. Most notably, it was stripped of all of Dr. Dre and Eminem’s contributions.
Fans are now petitioning to have the original version released. You can sign the petition here. Below is a partial tracklisting for the lost album.
