Rumored Ghostwriters: Nicki Minaj, Gillie Da Kid, Drake, Curren$y
Although Nicki casually asserted that she had written Wayne’s verse for the song "You The Boss," which ended up being used by Rick Ross, it was back during Tha Carter that Wayne was catching flack for enlisting Gillie Da Kid as a ghostwriter. In a 2006 interview with HipHopDX, Gillie claimed to have ghostwritten “pretty much all” of Wayne’s first Carter album, which sparked one of many beefs that Gillie was involved in throughout his career.
Some listeners claimed to have heard a Northern influence that hadn’t been present in Wayne’s previous albums, but Weezy has always denied it. After The Dedication 2 mixtape was released, there were also rumblings that Curren$y had ghostwritten a lot of the project for Wayne, and soon after the two separated ways. It’s a shame that we never got to hear Music To Fly To.
