Removed Album?

Casual Listener
Hey Guys

One of my Albums (The Big Picture by Big L) has been removed from my music library. And now i can't redownload it, because it somehow also was removed from Spotify. I don't really know what to do. Maybe it's only a bug especially in my account, but i doubt that. I can still have a look in the Tracklist, but i can't download it nor can listen online to it.
Do you have an idea?
Could you please check if you could download the Album if you wanted to? That would be awesome
Thanks

The reason is that the artist or their music label has likely decided to remove it from Spotify.

The availability of music on Spotify is up to the artist and their music label.

Spotify wants all the world's music, and they're working hard on making this happen for you. However sometimes agreements can't be reached with the artist or label or a change may happen in music ownership. Sometimes the music is only available in certain countries, while access is blocked to others. Sometimes the album or song will be unavailable temporary, and come back again later.

Spotify adds thousands of albums and artists are added every day. If you can't find an artist you're looking for, they may appear (or reappear if removed) soon. In the meantime, feel free to contact the artist or their label to ask when they plan to be on Spotify.

I doubt that he removed it if you know what I mean. I hope that his label puts it back on

hey sorry for this bump. and i don't mean to talk so much. but yeah.

 

I discovered Big L last year i think during the summer or september. (2015). And since then I have been able to listen to all his albums. But just last week I noticed I couldn't play any song off the album Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous.

 

All the tracks showed up, and were available, but whenever i played them, it just didn't play anything, and removed the song information on the bottom left. above the play button.

 

I didn't notice until now about The Big Picture. The other album (LODP&D) is available again, but The Big Picture isn't even showing up. I still have 98 Freestyle and Flamboyant on my main playlist, so i clicked on the big picture album, and all the songs are dimmed out. http://i.imgur.com/SkRvY6a.png

If they can't liscence why they put it up at their first place! I subscribed cause I saw all my favorite bands there and now 20 % of them are just gone. I click on the album, the song I restless want to listen and I get NOTHING. It's just annoying!
