Kanye, Jay and Dre had ghost-writers for ages. Not surprised if true.

Anyone believe him?
Didn't Big Sean ghostwrite some of Graduation?

And @blur, no. Trouble Man is a solid 8/10 album. All of his albums are good-great besides I'm Serious (never listened in full, so can't comment) & No Mercy

I haven't really cared about T.I. since '07 or so, but I wound up listening to all of Trouble Man based entirely off the strength of Andre's verse on 'Sorry'. I realise that doesn't make much sense, but either way I thought the album was alright. I'm one of those idiots that'll still buy music, so I figured I'd at least make an effort to listen to it all the way through a couple times. Opening and closing tracks were probably my favourites behind 'Sorry', but I honestly don't remember much about the album as a whole.

Main thing I took away from it was that Three Stacks >>>>>>>

He's been teasing us for years. It's like either make another Outkast album, make a solo album or stop writing godly verses reminding us all of why we're still miserably waiting on your acting "career" to finish. Fuck.

Kanye and Dre, yeah. They are/were producers who rap more than rappers. Kanye has become more of a "real" rapper over the years though.

But yeah, i absolutely believe that Consequnce and Rhymefest wrote for him. If you listen to their music, you can hear it in Kanye's early music.

Dre is obvious, he's always had writers. That's not even "ghost-writing" really because he doesn't even try to pretend that he writes.

Jay? As in Jay-Z? Nah. I mean it wouldn't shock me if he had some now and in recent years, but throughout his career? No. He WAS the writer.....hell, he wrote Still D.R.E. for Dre.

I am kind of starting to believe the theory that Consequence, Rhymefest, GLC, Really Doe, basically all of the guys that were around GOOD Music in the beginning where ghost writers for Ye. Notice how Ye's style has completely changed now that they're gone?

Wouldn't be surprised if Pusha & Cyhi are ghost-writing for him now.

Yeah, definitely I would say cats like that write for him now. He started out as a straight producer and was considered a wack rapper at first, but then he was getting better. He's definitely got writers now, like he always did.

However, I also have no doubts that he writes some of his shit too. I'm sure it's a collaborative process. And it's not a knock that he has writers, either. He's obviously talented and creative and 100% invested in his music, there's nothing wrong with using others talents to create the best music possible.

Snoop and Strong Arm Steady discussing Jay writing Still D.R.E. for Dre. This is part of a much longer clip where they talk about writing, ghost-writing, etc. In the longer clip, Snoop talks about how he wrote Deez Nuts, Deep Cover, Nuthin But a G Thang, etc., how D.O.C. wrote a lot for them, using a line on "Lay Low" that one of the Strong Arm Steady cats wrote, etc.

Yeah, I'm sure he writes some of his stuff too.

Consequence came off as really bitter in that interview, he also came at Q-Tip, claimed to have ghostwritten for him and that he was ghost-wrote a lot of A Tribe Called Quest's Beats, Rhymes and Life album.
