technically from 4 Life, otherwise unreleased (2009, Jive)

These are old as fuck at this point and if you’re in the know you’ve probably already heard them, but since I posted a new 4 Life O.G. today, here are the other three that have made their way out of the vault.

“She Luv It” and “Still on Tha Grind” both feature different beats than their subsequent album incarnations, as their original samples were either removed or changed—a sad, but recurring, theme in UGK’s music. These tracks were, at the time, fairly new.

“The Southern Sound” was chopped up to make 4 Life‘s two interludes. Unlike the other two tracks, this one is much older; it’s originally a Ridin’ Dirty leftover. It features the original sample that was also removed/changed for the new album and an entirely different Bun B verse.
