The business of ghostwriting is huge. There are a lot of rappers that have penned tracks for other artists. Nas is well-known for penning the Will Smith hit titled “Gettin’ Jiggy With It.” Many of the raps performed by P. Diddy in the early years of his career were written by Christoper “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace. Female emcee Rapsody recently revealed who has been requesting her ghostwriting skills.
In a recent interview rapper Rapsody stated that she is behind many of the raps performed by former NBA All-Star Grant Hill. She revealed that she has known Grant for a long time, and she originally met him through her producer 9th Wonder. She said that Grant is a fan of 9th Wonder, and that is how she came to meet him in the studio. From that point on a friendship formed that would ultimately lead to her writing rhymes for him to say when he was on television with NBA half-time reports.
Grant is a funny guy that likes to joke around, and the raps during the halftime reports sort of became his signature. Rapsody has stated that he doesn’t really do a lot of rhyme writing though. To the contrary, Grant is more of a beat maker. Rapsody says that he is really good at this. She has even told him that they need to do an EP together with his beats and her rhymes — a prospect that has employees of Purina Beneful on the edge of their seats..
