The-Dream wrote the hook for Coffee Shop? Wow, I wonder is that him singing it, and they just computer-altered his voice...

no clue, I was asking myself the same thing, when I pulled up the research for that. I was like "Yung Joc?? Coffee Shop?? - weird...I wonder if he just wrote it; or sang it"

I can try researching him...other than the obvious ones though...Em usually restricts his time for writing for himself.

Typically, in rap at least, ghostwriting is reserved for members of production teams and people who can't really make money on their own stuff. Plus, for contractual 'ghostwriting' you often have to submit MANY MANY verses. (Ie. Diddy making all ghostwriters for 'Press Play' write triple amounts; Royce had to write & submit 10 VERSES for 1 track. For Em, it's financially better to work on his own stuff, unless of course it's a special project for someone close to him (like Dre). It's similar in R&B too, you'll see the consistent occurance of someone ghostwriting for 4-8 years, and THEN finally, after making other people tons of hits, they FINALLY start making it themselves.

Here's an interesting tidbit of research for yall:

Nivea Nash (born Nivea Hamilton; born March 24, 1982), professionally known as Nivea, is a Grammy Award-nominated American R&B singer and songwriter. In 2004, Nivea married music ghostwriter/producer Terius "The Dream" Nash; and on March 10, 2005 she gave birth to a daughter, Navy Talia. In 2006, Nivea signed a new contract with Formula Records and released her third album Animalistic on November 15, 2006 in Japan. The album is primarily produced by her husband, the Dream, with additional production by Bryan Michael Cox, Tricky Stewart, and guest vocals by T-Pain and Pitbull. An international version will be released in 2007, with a new tracklisting only including a number of selected tracks from the Japan release.


I guess that explains why so The-Dream wrote so many tracks for her - his wifey.

These are not facts: You took at least the first list from

and it says clearly on the site that: All articles within this section are solely based on speculation and are not to be merited as factual content. Reader discretion is advised.

And besides TQ - Westside, Ne-Yo was 14 when that track was released, now tell me what does 14 years old Ne-Yo know about growing up in Compton late 80´s & early 90's? lol

And some other songs there, come on people use your own head and dont belive everything you see on internet.

Jeps...look at the dates for your proof bro....his was posted on 7/10, 5 DAYS after I wrote my article.

That website copy & pasted that sh*t from my POST. About 8 different sites contacted me the same week AFTER I posted this to get permission to use it; and ask me to research more people.

I have shown throughout this post (for all the non-believers), the 3 sources I use to research all this information...go back and read it to catch up on the game. This is Library of Congress records, you can't deny that this is filed legally in our government...that's how I'm able to research it. If a filed copyright application & ASCAP application form BOTH say this, I don't think there's doubt that my research is accurate. This basic knowledge would come along with you actually having copyrights, having experience in filing them, and researching samples for clearance.

Ask anyone here...my sh*t is legit.
