Rumored Ghostwriters: Lord Superb, Trife Da God
The notorious story goes that Ghostface had Far Rockaway legend Lord Superb ghostwrite for him on Ghost’s most outlandish lyrical performance yet: Supreme Clientele. Reportedly, there’s audio of Superb on the phone claiming that he wrote the whole album, and during Ghost’s beef with 50 Cent, Tony Yayo added fuel to the fire by agreeing with that claim in a 2007 interview with Spin Magazine.
It’s a hotly contested debate amongst Wu-Tang fans, and while I don’t believe that Ghost jacked Superb’s style, it does add an interesting dynamic when listening to Supreme Clientele and Bulletproof Wallets. But that shit ain’t true. Other Wu nerds claim that Trife Da God began ghostwriting for Starks in an effort to reconcile why Ghost wasn’t as amazing as he’d been earlier in his career. Gotta feel for the Stans.
