A$AP Rocky Speaks On Ghostwriters; Calls Out Mediocre Acts

By HHL JT

Ghostwriting is always a tricky subject in rap.

In an interview with Forbes, A$AP Rocky suggests that ghostwriting is all over the game, and it's making things mediocre.

"You don’t have to have skills to rap, you don’t have to be a dope rapper to rap, you don’t have to even have talent to rap. Everything I’m saying is fact," Rocky declared. "All you need is a ghostwriter. F**k all the politics of what you need. There are so many acts that are just mediocre that are winning. My point isn’t to make them lose, my point is that mediocrity is oversaturating the game and we just keep s**t level."

What mediocre acts do you think A$AP is talking about?

And do you think the current emphasis on production over bars may also be why rappers without rapping talent are oversaturating the market?
