MTV’s Sway talked to the Hip Hop’s young bloods Freddie Gibbs and Kendrick about the power of the Ghostwriter. Of course they didn’t drop any names on who they have written for, but the two MC’s do shed some light on what goes on behind the scenes of those studio walls.
Even though they didn’t tell who they write for they did talk about a track on Game’s latest album that gives a writers credit to Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole even though neither of them appear on the actual song.
“Yeah, we had some work to do with that,” Kendrick confirmed before explaining the process. “With writer’s credit, it can be anything from a melody, to just an idea thrown into the air. As long as they give you the credit for it, it doesn’t initially have to be the writing though. … I just threw a few ideas in the air.
Tell Hova don’t pass the crown so soon/Unless he got a crown for every writer in the room/There’s too many spirits on these ghost-written tunes/So you can’t crown the heir until you seance the room(c)Pusha T
