Rumored Ghostwriters: Cormega, Jay Electronica, Tragedy Khadafi
Dream Hampton set the rap world ablaze last year when she nonchalantly tweeted that Nas’ Untitled album “was largely written by Stic of dead prez and Jay Electronica.” Nas fans were spilling their goblets while Jay fans were revving up the "Nas Lost” memes, and a former Hot 97 employee even testified to the veracity of hampton’s statement.
But Stic.man and Jay Electronica both denied the rumor, though Jay was more direct in assuring that Nas “never has and never will need a ghostwriter,” while Stic man simply said that the “contribution to his album was a collaboration and an honor.” It seems pretty hard to believe that such an idiosyncratic writer like Esco would be able to pull off having others write for him, but Jay Elect was seen as Nas’ poetic next of kin, even though Jay’s buzz had more than cooled off by the time these rumors swirled.
