Jay Electronica & stic.man tillbakavisar Nas-rykten

Båda rapparna påstås ha spökskrivit texter åt Queensbridge-rapparen efter ryktesspridning på Twitter…



Efter att flera bloggare hävdat att Nas fått mer än tillbörlig assistans med textförfattandet på 2008 års album “Untitled” kommer nu de utpekade medhjälparna till Nas undsättning när ryktesstormen började tillta under onsdagen.


I nya meddelanden av både Jay Electronica och stic.man (Dead Prez) hävdar man att Nas är en av de bästa rapparna någonsin och att de inte stått bakom några texter till New York-rapparen.


Nas is one of the Greatest Ever. never has and never will need a ghostwriter. that man’s pen and legacy is without question.

Dream Hampton. I certainly don’t mean to call u a hater. I am just being brought up to speed about your tweet. I heard the “rumors” from other tweets and a few emails from fans. I still haven’t read your tweet. So my statement was just being clear on how I felt about the collab. That was a great opportunity for me to work with one of the most influential emcees to my own personal flow and craft. I can’t speak on what Jay and Nas collab was cause I wasn’t there and that’s there business. Both of those cats are awesome lyricists in my opinion. But for me I was just a white belt that answered the call for a session with a master of the craft. And I assisted where it was requested with ideas, beats and some writing. Not because Nas “needed” me lol…Again I was just honored to get the call. Nas new album Life is Good is lyrically magnificent and his skills have always spoken for them self. So that’s just my view I respect that folks may field different ways about it. Just clarifying my position.

And I referred to it as a “rumor” because obviously no one of the people talking about it were present in the session. So people can sometimes think they know but weren’t present so they speak on what they think as opposed to being there.
