Hip-hop hates ghostwriters
, but it's well-known that a few people get a pass. Diddy is one of those people who has cashed so many checks for so many people (not to mention helped produce countless hits) that his lyrical aptitude has never truly been called into question; like Dr. Dre, everyone knows other rappers ghostwrite Diddy's lines, they're just interested in who does which. This morning, Diddy went on Power 105
in New York to discuss, among other things, his spat with Drake which had initially seemed to be over the beat to Drizzy's "0 To 100," which Diddy claimed Drake stole. This morning, Diddy further clarified that he had reached out to Drake in order to have the Canadian MC ghostwrite the song for him, which led to the drama (and a reported fight
in a Miami nightclub). While Drake didn't ghostwrite the song for Puff (though did he write it himself?), here are 22 rappers—including Drake—who have actually ghostwritten for the Bad Boy kingpin in the past.
