History of Ghostwriting #2: “Ghostwriter” – Skillz

In mid-2000 the talented underground rapper Skillz (you probably know him best by his year end Wrap Up songs) released "Ghostwriter", a controversial song where he revealed he was a ghostwriter for several mainstream acts.

The original version of the song censored the names. However a rare recording of a live performance shows Skillz dropping actual names (a cardinal sin for ghostwriters). According to him they never paid and that's why he called them out.

Check out the original.
