    Drake’s ghostwriters, my theory, and how to fake it in Rap

    A mug of steaming coffee rests between palms as my eyes race through a chain of tabbed Chrome results on the monitor I’m facing. My brain is spinning. I’m just about to delve into the most prolific and scaled case of Hip Hop ghostwriting since Rapper’s Delight. Context: About 18 months ago I decided I wanted to ‘blackhat’ my way into rap. I’m a 30+ years old rapper and producer with no local following or social presence. As far as actual rap skills, I’m pretty good, but as far as being a marketable rapper, nowhere near the mark. Granted – you’re probably thinking to yourself right now, ‘yeah right’. If…

After a series of mixtapes filled with his smooth, Bone Thugs-influenced flow, Dizzy made it to the indies in 2012, specifically Hopsin’s Funk Volume…
