Rumored Ghostwriters: Consequence, Rhymefest, Lupe Fiasco
It’s become common knowledge that Kanye had a committee of writers for Yeezus. His role has morphed into that of an actor/director instead of writer/producer these days, but he was accused of having a ghostwriter on one of his earliest breakout singles from The College Dropout.
People pointed fingers at Rhymefest for originally writing "Jesus Walks" and while Kanye officially credited him as a co-writer, ‘Fest, in an interview with Miss Info from 2005, alluded to the possibility that Ye had bought the song from him. He later cleared the air about ghostwriting for Kanye and took credit for only parts of the chorus and first verse, though many still believe that Yeezy bought the entire song from Rhymefest and rerecorded it.
