Hustle just put me on to an interesting article over at Sandra Rose’s site, where she exposes Kanye West’s “Ghost-Blogger”, Marcus Troy:
I know you don’t really believe Kanye West updates his blog several times a day while chasing skirts and displaying his astounding ignorance all over the world? Hopefully you’re not that naive…
… If you ask Marcus whether he ghost writes for Kanye, of course he’ll deny it. Because that’s what ghost writers do: they stay in the cut while giving others the glory.
As Marcus explains it on his own blog:
“In the rap game if you don’t write your own lyrics (like Diddy) you hire a “Ghost Writer” to do your penmanship for you.” The reason why they say “ghost” is because this person’s identity is usually kept private and you can use their material and pass it off as your own and the real writer essentially remains a ghost (unless they get mad, and call you out).
It does sound almost impossible that Kanye could update his blog so much, I mean he does have a lot more going on than I do at the moment (let’s be serious), so why not get a flunkee like myself to handle your business?
So any rappers out there who are in need of a “Ghost-Blogger”, please feel free to email me and I’ll send you quotes.
