Ghostwriters has rapidly become a sensitive subject in the hip hop community in the last couple of years, and even more so in 2015. After Meek Mill called out Drake for using a ghostwriter for his If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late album on Twitter earlier this summer, and the conversation has been on fire since. With reference tracks featuring an MC named Quentin Miller being leaked, and then Drizzy clapping back with multiple diss songs, it’s hard to tell where the culture’s stance on the issue is.
In light of all of these conversations, Rick Ross just added to the controversy, as he admitted to being one of the biggest ghostwriters in the game, which he covers on his Black Market track, “Ghostwriter.” While it’s not too known as to who he has written for, or what records exactly saw his low key pen game, this is a big confession in the game, especially for someone of Ross’ caliber. Rick Ross has a very successful rap career in his own merit, while Quentin Miller has just come into the limelight this year for his crediting on Drizzy’s album.
