When n*ggas hear "write" they think that a n*gga jus wrote a whole 16 and handed it to the other person.sometimes its like that but most of the time its jus a n*gga pitchin a line here and there

Diddy fu*king sucks to be having all these good a.ss writers..that's what I got out of this article lol

That "Still D.R.E" verse from has Jay all over it


Didn't know Nas wrote "the Watcher" for Dre..it sounds like Eminem imo and I always a.ssumed it was him.Nice.

Eminem belongs on this list though for sure.

Also,I know none of yall care but TI wrote a album for Bow Wow(when he had that song/video w/ Birdman)

TI had Bow Wow spitting some flames(mainly because he sounded just like TI lol)

Not enough to get Tip on the list but worthy of an honorable mention

Exactly. Thats how Dre works even when he is producing. He likes to work with ideas, then he develops them.

Jay-Z wrote I Ain't Heard Of That by Slim Thug?

This makes me wonder about that list because I Aint Heard of That was supposed to be Jay Zs song (Change Clothes remix I think) but Jay wind up not using it and Slim Thug got on it. So alot of those songs were prob just given to the other artist but idt the orginal artist wrote the verses. They prob just came up with the concept/chorus.

He only wrote the chorus (he was originally on the chorus as well)

It's like when 50 said he wrote 6 songs for game when he only wrote the choruses for them songs lol

And it's true a person can be credited as a writer and all the got to do is contribute a lyric a word or melody to the record
So you're saying that the people that are saying Kanye had sh*t written for him are blowing things out of proportion compared to someone like Dre having entire VERSES written for him?

I mean, if Kanye had entire verses written for him, I'll shut up, but I'd like to see proof first. Same with that Nas sh*t. No proof = bullsh*t until proven otherwise.

The whole second verse of Jesus Walks was by Rhymefest

It's kind of grimy it was his verse and Kanye took him off the record and just spat Rhymefest whole verse lmao

I put it like this Kanye gets credit for producing beats other producers did so if he has producers producing for him he has writers writing for him as well
I don't care as long as its hot but Kanye is a perfectionist so most of he time he edits rhymes (and beats) And I don't know his process but more than likely its very varied

He can write a verse and have big Sean throw him a line here and there or he can have Cons write the whole song for him and he rewrites all of cons verses

Again I don't know how he works except that he will work on a record for more than a few days trying to make it perfect and a lot of times bring people to help make it perfect
That second verse was Rhymefest's??? Wow. Where do people find these things out? I never knew this.
