Evidently, there's a chapter missing from Royce da 5'9"'s newly-released studio album, Book of Ryan.

According to the veteran Detroit MC, a last-minute collaboration with ScHoolboy Q, entitled "Cut Throat," had to be cut from the album due to a sample clearance hiccup.

"I’m gon get on the phone with my brother, we’re gonna figure out a cool way to release it," Royce tweeted.

In response to the news, singer-songwriter and producer Novel, who recently appeared alongside Royce on PRhyme 2 selection "Sunflower Seeds," offered to replay the sample, a technique the industry veteran has used to circumvent sample clearance issues for artists such as Nicki Minaj, The Game, CyHi The Prynce and David Guetta.

The list of great hip-hop records that have been cut from albums and never heard is quite long and growing by the day. Let's hope we hear "Cut Throat" sooner rather than later.
