Explicit albums removed?

I have noticed that one album in particular has had the explicit version removed in place of an edited version.

 

Namely the 50 Cent album Get Rich or Die Tryin' (Not the soundtrack), which was in regular rotation during my gym sessions.

 

Before this I was aware that both versions were on Spotify. With the explicit version being labelled as "UK Deluxe" version or something but now it's nowhere to be found...

 

Anyone have any ideas if I can ever find it again?

Yeah you lot need to sort this out Spotify

More songs are now 'edited' and sounds completely rubbish.

If more come along im going over to Tidal or Apple Music

Not just 50 Cents album but also other rappers album a like I’ve noticed Eminem’s Encore album is no longer explicit and it’s really frustrating, I am tempted to cancel my membership as half of my favourite playlist now has unplayable songs

This is what I mean. There's so much inconsistency and yet I can't get an explanation from Spotify as to why certain albums keep getting removed and changed.

 

TBH the edited version of GRODT is barely listenable because every second word is muted out.

 

I don't have a problem with Spotify having clean versions of albums but for those of us who want to listen to the music the way it was intended, it just makes me feel like turning to Spotify to listen to it is a waste of time. I may as well buy an iPod or burn a CD for goodness sake 🙄

Ok, so though my saved albums I managed to find the explicit "UK Deluxe" version which will not appear in Spotify's search function.

 

However, it is not the full album and only features 7 of the songs...

 

What is going on?...

Also tempted to cancel over this. So annoying there isn't a choice. I agree 50 cent in particular is unlistenable, always amused me when his videos were on music channels or songs were on the radio and you'd barely hear any words.

This is so true. Does anyone know a way to get some input from someone at Spotify? Or are we just doomed to have unlistenable music with no explanation?

The same problem with 2Pac Greatest Hits, and some of the 8 Mile Deluxe Soundtrack.

The reason that Spotify keeps some songs is that when you play a song from an currently unavaliable album, Spotify searchs for the same song but from a different album. This is why you see a different cover art in the Player Section.
