which rappers use ghostwriters...
 

 
i don't want to use this thread to destroy any1's long time favourite rapper but the truth is a high percentage of rappers use or have made use of ghostwriters and i don't believe a rapper should be credited for somebody else's work

only a few incidents i know of i'll mention (below) but i've read a few articles about recognised and highly rated rappers using ghostwriters

jay z writing for bleek on occasion
jay z writing for foxy brown
jesus walks being written for kanye west

also i read about an artist named epik or d-rich (can't remember which one) who is supposed to of ghost written a few platinum songs and not everybody goes platinum

what are your views? and also share with us which rappers you know of using ghostwriters, so we actually know what and who we are really judging.

Bad Azz wrote for Snoop when he was on No Limit

Cam'ron wrote Lil Kim's verse on "Crush on You"

Sauce Money wrote P Diddy's dedication for Biggie ("Ill be missing You")

Del wrote some of ice cube's first album

LL Cool J use to write for that female rapper YoYo

well, there´s a legendary album featuring legendary rapper Eazy-E, it´s called Straight Outta Compton. nearly all of his raps were not written by him. So I guess in most cases it doesn´t matter, in Hip Hop. I mean pop musicians who use ghostwriters all suck, that´s true, but if you´re real (like everyone Graphic mentioned) it´s ok, kinda.

Jay-Z is the greatest of all time because he not only killed it every time on his own albums, but he was also ghostwriting sh*t for all sorts of rappers at the same time.

And true rap fans know that the realest cats in the game don't have sh*t ghostwritten for them. If you can't come up with your own 3 verses per track (or 1 verse per track, now that every new album has like 25 guest MCs spitting), you ain't the truth.

i also started taking notice at the end of films on the credits (and it's sometimes on album cases etc) but when the credits come up you'll see "performed by" whoever you hear on the track and then it says "written by" and then you notice the rappers real name as well as other names and i shouldn't think it takes 3 people to write 1 song.....

Ja- Rule

NO.

Ja made "Can I Get A..." then Jay listened to it and added a verse and then he added the song on Vol.2

You really think that Ja Rule can ghostwrite for Jay Z?!
