Generic list post: best bonus tracks (2000 – 2021)

When MF DOOM asked “which n*ggas is wack until they last two tracks?” on The Finest in 1999 he couldn’t have ever anticipated how ridiculous the bonus track game would become in following decades: regular bonus tracks, deluxe bonus tracks, remix bonus tracks, re-released 2nd pressing bonus tracks, 2nd disc bonus tracks, European bonus tracks, Japanese bonus tracks, Australian bonus tracks, Best Buy bonus tracks, Target bonus tracks, iTunes bonus tracks, Spotify bonus tracks etc etc etc. FREEZE! This shit is outta control, for example an actor who never snapped outta his role. So, here’s ya host’s favourite songs from the past 20+ years which were forced to get in where they didn’t fit in as bonus tracks.

Nothing sums up Nas’ idiocy better than him relegating his last truly great song to a bonus track on one of the worst double albums in Rap history. Word is bond, son, you let yourself down like dis!?!

PS: Schrödinger’s Album (noun)
A philosophical thought-experiment conducted by dullards on Rap Twitter where Nas’ It Was Written is simultaneously unfairly underrated and better than Illmatic.
