    The misconceptions have started already, ghostwriting topics always lead people astray. Its damn near impossible to know who wrote for who. There's very few admitted instances.

    This hasn't been confirmed, but I'm pretty damn sure Kendrick Lamar ghostwrote for Dr. Dre on Compton..

    back in the gap if you would read the insert on the tapes....the writing credit was always listed....First thing I would do after buying cassette tape is open up and read who wrote the rhymes and who made the beat//

    Top billin is ONE SONG. Name another song on that album lol

    Anyway producers get writing credit, always have. Unless you want to believe Justin Smith (Just Blaze) wrote Jay-Z lyrics the two are different.

    Dre doesn't write rhymes and his ghostwriters usually openly say they were writing for him with no 🤬 given. Kendrick penning his verse is more than believable.

    You just further proved his point. Do you really know what a ghostwriter is?

    Reading sample credits means nothing. You can get writing credit for 1 single line. Do you know who's credited for writing "All I Need" by Method Man? Ashford & Simpson & not 🤬 , just based on the fact that he sampled them. Writing credits means nada.

    K. Did say he wrote something's on Detox. Maybe "Compton" was done during one of those sessions.

    If they get the writing credit for actually writing the raps then that's not ghostwriting. ghostwriting receives no credit and just gets paid a one time payment.

    Exactly...🤬 getting it twisted. Lyte was a true emcee.

    Rakim did write "Summertime"...Ra's vocal infliction and flow is all over that track.
