Jay Electronica Continues to Not Answer the Nas Ghostwriting Question [Video]

Last month, rumors circulated that Nas had used ghostwriters—namely Jay Electronica and of dead prez—when working on his 2008 album, Untitled. The talk sparked discussion, speculation, doubt, disappointment, and all sorts of other reactions.

At the time, both Jay Elec and stic took to their social media platforms, with neither outright denying their roles in the crafting of the album. “Nas is one of the Greatest Ever. never has and never will need a ghostwriter. that man’s pen and legacy is without question,” Jay wrote on Twitter in mid-August.

Over the weekend at the Made in America festival in Philadelphia, curated by his label boss Jay-Z, the New Orleans rapper, when asked by MTV, continued with his tip-toeing around a direct answer regarding his involvement in the process. “I said on my Twitter, you know, Nas is one of the gods, one of the greatest of all-time, one of the godfathers of even my own style,” he said. “I met Nas on a humble submission, you know what I mean. And Nas is one of the greatest ever. He never has or never will need a ghostwriter. He’s legendary. His pen game is unquestionable. And salute to Nas. And all the other bullshit is just bullshit.”
