I want to upload some music by an artist which is not available on Spotify. It was not officially released. However almost all his albums are already there. I do not want to make money by uploading the music. I want all the revenue generated to go to him. How can I do it?
also interested in doing this. Anyone have any thoughts?
You may try to read the Copyright terms of the desired artist / band if you haven't tried already. There you may find some usefull info about spreading and uploading the content of the artist you where talking about.
Hope this might help you.
Me too, i want to upload it on spotify since its hassle free... i don't also want to earn but i would gladly help the artist...
I am here 'cause I would like ti do the same. I have some songs of artists that are already here on Spotify. Anyone can help? I am creating some playlists and they are incomplete without those songs.

Only the rightful copyright holders can upload music on Spotify.
In case you've purchased songs that are not on Spotify, you can still listen to them locally on your devices. You can head here for more information about local files.

Im on my way to report unwanted distribution by unauthorized person ASAP
You need to get authorization from the original master recording holder regarding distribution.
No, you can't until an authorized person grants for distribution involved in the original master recording.
