T.I. Thinks If You Use Ghostwriters, You Need an Asterisk By Your Name
 

 

T.I. On If ghostwriting takes away from hip hop:

I donít know. Iíve never done it myself. Iíve never done it. I sat in rooms and I challenge myself with the verses. Bounce them off the minds of people in the room. Iíve had people write hooks for me and sh-t, but verses? Iíve never had anyone do that. If it works for them, then sh-t, keep doing it, if thatís what it takes. Iíd rather have somebody whoís my favorite, collaborate with somebody else and have the best possible project they can have, than do it on their own, and it be some bullsh-t. As a fan of music, I think as long as the best possible project was delivered to the fans, thatís all that matters.

If they are going to try to compare themselves to the greats now, then I think you must have an asterisk by their name. If youíre considered a great, then whoever was helping you should be up there in a column with your name as well.

This is exactly why it'll never happen. Some think ghost writers are those minds that help mold the verses. Some think even if you just got your hook wrote since it's an integral part of the song that you should have an asterisk.

Criteria that's up for interpretation will never see implementation...

He has somewhat of a point, u wanna be included in the GOAT list thenm u better write all ur own sh*t, cuz if them words aint urs then u lose a 1000 points..Hooks are the only exception or maybe using someone elses line as a form of flattery

I dont think Nas has ghostwriters, i think thats been established and the people who allegedly wrote for him said they didnt ghost write for Nas.

I agree but I think everybody got help before for a hook atleast there's a reason for all them people being in the studio and if somebody got a good hook or lines I doubt you will turn them down

hooks are common for n*ggas to get help wit. ya boy or the producer might have somethin catchy in mind and help u out a lil, but verses i mean c'mon...i mean if u got problems finishin the last line of a verse n someone helps out that aint a problem. but a full verse? nah, that takes away half the art of emceeing
