In news that may not be of surprise to some, but may leave others in complete disbelief, Nasir Jones may have received some pennng help on his controversial 2008 LP. FWMJ’s Rappers I Know recently wrote a piece hilariously titled, Nas Lost (Ghostwriters), in which he revisits his days working at Hot 97 back in ’07 and receiving a phone call from Jay Electronica telling him that he was ghostwriting for Nas. The article follows tweets from hip-hop journalist and cultural critic Dream Hampton who also confirmed in a response tweet revealing that Nas’ 2008 album, Untitled, was written largely by Stic of dead prez and Jay Electronica.
I think Jay writes what he believes. Nas’ “Nigger” album was largely written by Stic of dead prez and Jay Electronica
