Secret Ghostwriters To The StarsIt takes a lot of skill to have a major hit. You have to be able to sing and put together some good music. However, you don't necessarily have to write down any lyrics. These artists are notorious for their songs...and the fact they don't always write the lyrics they sing. So when they say "it came from the heart," it's a big load of caca.
Dr. Dre - He never writes his raps. Whether it be Ice Cube or Snoop, someone is always writing his hits.
Will Smith - Big Willie stopped writing his lyrics for his comeback. You know who wrote "Miami"? Nas!
Janet Jackson - Jimmy Jam penned most of her classics. She just went in the booth, sang and touched herself on stage. Not that we're complaining.
Beyonce - The-Dream wrote "Girls" and Ne-Yo wrote "Irreplaceable."
Jermaine Dupri - He's another one who always had some help. Jay-Z wrote all of his "Money Ain't A Thang" raps.
