VIDEO: Black Thought Says You Ain't Top 5 If You Have Ghostwriters 🎤
Black Thought of The Roots and Jimmy Fallon fame gave an interview to Hot 97 where he expresses his feelings on ghostwriters. In the video above he says:
“I think you can’t be top five if you don’t write what you’re saying.”
Although he admits to rapping choruses written by writing partners, he assures he’s never rapped a verse written by someone else. He also stated that he’s open to guest writing verses.
“I don’t take issue with it because I’m tryin’ to write for more people, I think if that’s what you do then, you know, it’s all good.”
