Ghostwriting in Hip Hop isn't new so Cassidy is correct...you could say Grandmaster Caz is considered the 1st ghostwriter considering he wrote Big Bank Hank's (RIP) verse from Sugar Hill Gang's "Rapper's Delight". It's been plenty of controversy about ghostwriting and whether we like it or not, they're in the industry, but the key rule is that the ghostwriter is to remain in the shadows, write the hits and collect checks.
Mad Skillz aka Skillz is one of the well known ghostwriters in the game, even released a track about it exposing his clientele, but left the names edited in the song..everyone knows The DOC's pen game with Dr. Dre, Snoop, Eazy etc...and I'm sure ya'll know about Rakim writing "Summertime" for Will Smith. The ghostwriting in Hip Hop is endless: Sauce Money is another infamous ghostwriter...
If you're a student of Hip Hop and lyric styles and have a good ear, you can easily pick up certain flows on a majority of artists and realize that most of them had their lyrics written by someone else, especially when they used to rap a certain way on one album then all of a sudden their rap style changed drastically, in this case and point Drake.
Which is why this shit doesn't surprise me when some use to say JayZ bit Young Chris' flow...ironic.
It took nas 2 months to respond to takeover. Stop the dramatics nigga.
Drake looks at Meek as weak, but ain't come for kdot for that control verse or calling him out.
yea thats cuz Nas moms had passed away right before shit popped off....also Nas was already giving it to them and finally Ether was track number 2 on a classic album...these are just random freestyles dropped on Soundcloud in the middle of the night
Matthews gave up money to go to Dallas? Dumb move
For 1 he's a product of circumstance, he's not,anything more than a solid 3rd option, 2 Dallas is low key in a similar boat as LA, in that they SHOULD be rebuilding, but Dirk is making them pick up random FA's and,vets to make it look like they can "compete" ....product: 8th seed
