Kanye West Say He Didn't Physically Write His Lyrics For First Four Albums

It looks like Kanye West took a cue from Jay-Z by not writing down his lyrics for his first four albums.

It looks like the Throne and "a song with Coldplay" aren't the only things Kanye West and Jay-Z have in common. Now, in an outtake from Ice-T's directorial debut The Art of Rap, Yeezy says that he didn't write down his lyrics for his first four album.

'Ye said that he didn't begind actually writing down his lyrics until he began recording his last solo album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. He went on to say that he noticed a major difference in the quality of his lyrics when he began writing them down, as evidenced by his 2010 single "Power."

"I didn't write my raps down for my first four albums - like all, I did it from the head straight to the booth," he said. "But on this last album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, I wrote it because I really put myself in the zone that my life was dependent on the success of this album. With that being the case, I said, 'You know what? No matter what anybody says about me, I can write something that can make someone that hates me the most have to really respect or love the song.' So even a song like 'Power,' I spent 5,000 hours writing it, and it's really the psychology behind the lyrics; it's not just blatantly, 'I've got all the powers' - [it's] 'No one man should have all that power.' It's word[ed] it in a really sensitive way that opens it up for everyone."

to all of my fellow musicians out there...seasoned musicians....we know that writing in your head is not that difficult....with a studio at hand....just put the beat on repeat and you can come up with a 16 or 32 bar verse in 30 minutes.....sometimes writing with head is easier and allows more creativity....
