I don’t see anything wrong with ghostwriters. You can still be a good entertainer. I just don’t think that you could call your one of the best rappers or artists. You shouldn’t looked down upon for us using she talked about getting her rap identity stolen by another artist and everybody shunned her. The source is reliable because it’s about themselve and their experience in the game.

This group from Dead end hip hop talks about how it is acceptable for producers to have the rappers on their track help them with lyrics so they can share the track with them but if you claim to be a rapper only and the best at what you do you should not be using a ghostwriter.

See prime example in this article Tory Lanez ghostwriting for other artist is not frowned upon and that's because for people like him that considered a side job or a career. The industry is full of and built on songwriters for example: Taylor Swift was a songwriter before she broke out, and the same for a lot of other artists. So why should drake be frowned upon for having ghostwriters? The reason is the people look up to him as a legend in the game but your legend status gets taken away when your not writing your material.

KeithGray's curator insight, December 6, 2015 5:26 PM

Tory Lanez is one of my favorite artist and this is a big issue in our industry now.Ghostwriting and Tory Lanez doesn't have a ghostwriter I salute him to that but in this topic he tells how some of the biggest artist you think write these lyrics your in the crowd or at home singing is not coming from them its him or another person writing it and people don't realize it until the truth comes forth.

I think that these guys are right because most people that listen to your music think your in the studio working hard.In reality it is another guy or girl writing your stuff and Most people don't like the fake stars of our industry and most that do like them they don't care who is writing it just the fact that it's music
