Ghostwriting: Rap's Messiest Secret


DJ Khaled’s “Shining” featuring Beyonce and Jay Z seems to include another subliminal aimed at Drake. But what would an outward battle between Hov and Drizzy actually look like, considering the two MCs each come from eras with differing tolerance for ghostwriting? Tyrese let the cat out of the bag during his interview with The Breakfast Club this week. He’s planning to release the ghostwriters and reference tracks to all ghostwritten rhymes included on his next album under his rap alias, Black Ty. But how is lyrical greatness defined when crews are enlisted to craft classics? Stones Throw Records MC Homeboy Sandman, as well as Rude Jude from the All Out Show on Shade45 share their perspective on rap’s dirtiest secret.
