Did some song writing for Jay Rock and Clyde Carson
Is writing 2 songs on Ya Boys album (2 singles that is)

snoop has admitted it...and i believe game uses em too..his flow/delivery is somtimes different when he rhymes on certain peoples shit...just go listen to bone thugs ft game - the streets (i think thats what its called)...i wouldnt be surprised if 90% of ALL rappers use a ghostwriter at one point or another...

yea man, I hear ya.

Like Still DRE. One of the biggest west coast anthems of all time written by Jay-Z.

you (and others, like HighEyeCue and Chad) may find this little story about still D.R.E. interesting
(it's from Rollin' with Dre: The Unauthorized Account: An Insider's Tale of the Rise, Fall, and Rebirth of West Coast Hip Hop )

yep,nice info.  ;)

thanks  ;)

i'm sure you will enjoy reading this book ( despite the blablaba talk in some chapters  ;)).

I don't think you get much bigger then Dre and Eazy using ghostwriters. Ice Cube pretty much summed up his thoughts on ghostwriters on Spittin Pollaseeds:

Fuck a ghost writer
Sittin in the back, of the studio
Tryin to write a nigga rap
It's the muppet show, most niggas need a&r(a&r)
To tell them how to fuck a hoe
Ice Cube, true mc, write everything I say, even back in the day
Imma spit it, how i feel it, fuck a gimmick
You can keep your catchy lines, imma 'bout to write a rhyme
If you got backpack, tryin act black
Think you know the culture, you'z a fuckin vulture
You never a approached the mic
You dress like a dike, sayin what you don't like
Who deserves five mics, who deserves two
But the nigga wit two still can serve you
This West Coast, flow is different in the East
But in ain't no different in the streets


Cube can't say shit since his cousin DEL THE FUNKY HOMOSAPIAN ghost writtin a few tracks for him on his first album.

First of all im new here so whut up...but i think snoop is one of the greatest writers in hip-hop!ive seen many shows like the one recently on vh1 with him and game..he wrote his shit there and it was hot i think the song was to the top. In my opinion i think snoop lettin others write for him is a way of give young west-coast artists a chance and a check.Plus u gotta think what hip-hop legend has ever fessed up to having others write for them?So to me its snoop doing what he said puutin the west coast back on the map.Lets be honest how many albums have these ghostwriters put out..but they can say they contributed to a hot album,be it tha doggfather ego trippin or w/e.Also if d.o.c. didnt write on tbct would we still be talkin as much about him?  Just a thought 8)

Dr. Dre’s "The Watcher" – ghost-written by JayZ & Rakim

i really doubt that it's true; Dre already had Eminem as a co-writer for that track, so i don't see how he also would have used 2 ghostwriters  :-\

Dre having someone else writing a song for his dead brother is weaksauce too :-\

real talk

i see your point since it's such a personal song for dre, i thought it was kind of disappointing too that he used a ghost writer for a song with such a concept behind it.

but if you look at it differently like i said before, the final result is good, so you could ask yourself, what's more important?
we both know that Dre isn't really a rapper.

im not a rapper either but if something like that ever happened to me I know I could come up with something

same thing with Diddy with the song about Biggie he could have wrote something for once in his life too

I don't consider them MCs but they are rappers its a difference

who says that he couldn't come up with anything?

besides,just because he used a ghost writer doesn't mean he did have no control over the lyrics.
i respect that you would do it differently, but you also have to respect that he did it his way; it's his brother after all.
so if this is the way that he's satisfied with, then so be it.
that doesn't mean you don't have the right to criticise it though.



I remember there was a big controversy that Dre got Jayz who was an eastcoast dude like Dnice said to write Still DRE and also about the song about his brother some other east coast dude wrote it

not that an eastcoast dude wrote a song about his brother but just that he didnt write it himself

It was written by Royce Da 5'9, in the instrumental version of "2001" the name is credited.

New interview up....
Problem Talks Music, Sex, Record Deals, Writing For Snoop Dogg & More!
http://raptalk.net/website/content/view/470/54/

Let’s talk about your writing. You recently wrote some of the songs on Snoop Dogg’s Ego Trippin’ album – two of the best one’s in my opinion in Press Play and Neva Hafta Wurry.

Problem: Shouts out to Snoop because there are 30 million motherfuckers that could have wrote for him. For him to give me that opportunity was big, not only for me but for the Coast. For someone that everybody says doesn’t help out artists, I can name at least 6 motherfuckers that are young and got checks from that album. The whole experience changed me and the way that I do music. When Snoop got on Power 106 and said that I had something to do with the album- that sealed the deal for me.

When you wrote the songs, did he sit down with you and direct it? Or was it all just you crafting it?

 Problem: A lot of it was Terrace Martin. He’s probably the biggest influence on me right here and right now as far as everything. He didn’t have to give me a chance to do anything. He used a lot of his chances on me. I could have really fumbled the ball and fucked him off of some shit. I pretty much followed his lead the whole time. So pretty much what he and Snoop told me to do, I followed that – as far as the melodies. A lot of those melodies, Terrace came up with. I just put words to them [Problem mimics the Neva Hafta Wurry words and flow] – that’s all him. A producer when he makes a beat, he knows what the fuck he wants it to sound like. That’s why he’s a producer instead of a nigga that makes beats.

How was it writing Snoop’s life though? That was a deep song and you kind of had to get in to his mind for that one.

Problem: I’m from the West Coast. If you can sit behind a microphone and interview yourself and say that you weren’t a Snoop Dogg fan at some point in your life – then you are a liar. Everybody knows what happened to Snoop from the beginning to now. It was big for me. It was like I was reporting. I caught some flak from it though. I was at a barbershop and a nigga got at me like, “Why are you getting at Suge in that song.” Ain’t nobody getting at Suge. Everybody knows what the fuck happened between them. Let’s be for real. We all know the situation. I just reported what I knew.

What kind of reaction did Snoop give you for the song when he read what you wrote?

Problem: I actually wasn’t there when he first heard it. Terrace was there though and he said that a nigga was like lifting weights. I actually got a chance to sit behind the boards for it though, just me, him and the engineer. It was one of the first songs for Ego Trippin’. It was such a special moment for me, like for this nigga to even care about what the fuck that I think.

Did he change up some of your stuff? Or did he use everything that you wrote?

Problem: Snoop took whatever I did and enhanced it. The vibe on that song is so crazy. I swear on this, I was fucking with a female when the song came on Music Choice – and that fucked everything up because I stopped what I was doing. I was like, “Damn! This is crazy.”



Here's a list that someone released exposing some ghostwriters. The artist at the top is the writer, and below are songs they wrote or helped write.
Jay-Z:
Dr. Dre’s "The Watcher" – ghost-written by JayZ & Rakim

i really doubt that it's true; Dre already had Eminem as a co-writer for that track,
so i don't see how he also would have used 2 ghostwriters  :-\

Em wrote it (at least part one) Got to check the credits for part 2.
Part one´s credits is posted;
