13 Rappers Who’ve Written for Singers


Fans were kind of confused to learn Ciara’s new single “Body Party” featured her rumored boyfriend Future, especially since Future doesn’t contribute any verses (he does adlib a bit) to the song. He did, however, co-write the Mike WiLL Made It produced R&B jam. Future also co-wrote Ciara’s recently released “Wake up, No Makeup” and he even lent his writing skills to Ludacris’ hook for “Blueberry Yum Yum.” Since Future isn’t the first rapper to write for a singer, we at XXL decided to take a look at other rappers who’ve written records for singers. And yes, some hybrid rapper-singers did make the list. And yes, they do count. —Kai Acevedo (@LilPuccii)
