Roscoe Dash Goes at Kanye & Wale for No Lyric Credit

Posted By on September 30, 2012

If you didnt know by now almost all rappers at some point will use ghostwriters or take an upcoming artists lyrics while in the studio. Most the time the ghostwriter is happy to lend some help and get paid for their work, it also helps position them in a better spot for their debuts. Some popular ghostwriting would be Ice Cube for NWA/Eazy E/Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Royce Da 5’9 and Ludacris for Dr. Dre, Frank Ocean for Jay-Z and Kanye, Lupe Fiasco for Jay-Z and so on.

Well now Roscoe Dash is going in hard at the Good Music camp for not giving him any credit (and obviously by credit he also meens the right cash). Roscoe claims that he helped write and even do the melody for Kanye and R. Kelly’s new song “To the World” off of the Cruel Summer album. The claims are so strong that if you listen to the album song you still here Roscoe Dash’s vocals on the adlibs.

Roscoe then went after Wale for again not being credited or compensated in the right manor for his help with “Lotus Flower Bomb” citing that he wrote the hook for the #1 single.

“Same s–t with @Wale lotus flower bomb,” he wrote. “I wrote that for him b4 he even signed to Ross & it went #1…but nobody would kno that cuz I’m not in the credits.”

“Can’t do favors for n—as bcuz no matter how humble and generous u r to ppl n—as will take everything u have,” Roscoe continued. “Even n—as u look up to. The most talented ppl get the least credit for everything and the crazy part is they put in the MOST work. But EVERYTHING must eventually come to the light…I’m only speaking on this publicly bcuz there are so many ppl who wanna be apart of the industry but dnt [sic] kno half of the s–t that goes on.”

Later on, Roscoe tweeted that he’d talked to Wale about the matter and specified that he didn’t write Wale’s parts on “Lotus Flower Bomb.” “After getting off the phone with @wale I feel like I need to clarify I WROTE THE HOOK for lotus flowerbomb’ not his verses,” he wrote.
