Willie D Says He Wrote Verses for Scarface on Geto Boys Songs
While The Breakfast Club is making plenty of waves this morning with their historically brief interview with Birdman, Geto Boys rapper Willie D dropped by the morning show yesterday (April 21) and provided some soundbites of his own. Starting at the 18 minute mark, Willie D explains the writing process for the group, which at times included Scarface rapping Willie's words.
"I wrote all of my stuff," he said. "I wrote a couple songs that Face rapped. But as far as Bill though, when it came to Geto Boy records, I’d say about 80-90 percent of everything you ever heard Bill say came out of my head."
When asked if he penned hooks or actual bars, Willie says he did it all. "Nah, I actually wrote whole songs where he rapped on. I’m talking about Geto Boy records. I wrote 'Do It Like a G.O.,' the whole record. And myself, Bill and Brad rapped that. I wrote 'Ain’t With Being Broke' and I did 'C’mon.'"
Charlamagne then transitions into the Meek Mill and Drake beef which has centered around Drake's alleged use of ghostwriters. "For the real hip-hop enthusiast, that’s a must," Willie says, "but for the entertainment, music industry, man that stuff don’t matter. It’s about making great music and I never tripped on writing for Bill or writing anything that Brad ever did."
