I dint think it's true that anyone could do it but I do believe that a rapper who raps the songs of other writers more often than their own verses can be easily replaced. I mean it shouldn't be something to boast about if you write your own ****.

it's same for all pop music. Its about evoking an image, having the proper cadence, looking marketable.

With that said not all pop artists who use ghost writers are talent less hacks. Look up the credits for your favorite-commercial or otherwise-artist. Chances are he/she/they didn't write the songs entirely on the own. It's a romanticized notion to think the music is just this pure, unfiltered personal expression.

It reminds me when all the hubbub about courtney love having her songs supposadly co written by kurt. They were married no **** he's going to help her creatively.

Look at the adverse criticism Kanye has received since he admittedly and supposedly stopped using ghost writers. He started calling black people the NEW SLAVES ffs. His production is stellar but i cannot **** with that dudes themes

Immature? I love what she says about the growth of black people in the media but is she really throwing shade at iggy or are people making it sound like a bigger deal than it is?

Also, what does everyone think about rappers not writing their own verses?
Definitely a publicity stunt. She's about to pop out another album. I see what she is saying, if you're going to rap, surely you must come up with most of the content yourself. Otherwise, it doesn't mean anything.

I know for sure that some of Iggy's tracks on her album weren't written by her.

Nicki Minaj Supports Iggy Azalea Following BET Awards Comments

Nicki Minaj has clarified some of the things she said (and appeared to imply) regarding her feelings toward Iggy Azalea during her acceptance speech for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist at the BET Awards.

At the show, Minaj claimed that anything she rapped, she wrote and then made a series of gestures that were widely presumed to be directed at Azalea, followed by Minaj saying, "No shade." At the time, it seemed to be in reference to Azalea allegedly hiring ghostwriters like T.I. for her raps, and became such a cause célèbre that it topped Rolling Stone's Everything Index for the week. Now Minaj has praised Azalea in a series of tweets.

The 45 Best Albums of the Year So Far

"The media puts words in my mouth all the time and this is no different," she wrote. "I will always take a stance on women writing because I believe in us! I believe we're smart enough to write down our own thoughts and perspective, just like the men do. I've been saying this for five years.

"I fell in love with Lauryn Hill because I knew she was the author behind those amazingly profound and articulated songs on the The Miseducation [of Lauryn Hill]," she continued. "I wondered how Lauryn tapped into my brain and wrote an album on love, betrayal, passion, pain, triumph, brokenness. Did she read minds? It's the same reason I have a different level of respect for Missy [Elliot]. I know she's a writer and a producer. Women must aspire for more.

"I've congratulated Iggy on the success of 'Fancy,' publicly," she concluded. "She should be very proud of that. All the women nominated should be proud. That will never change my desire to motivate women to write. Our voices have to be heard. I hope I inspire up-and-coming females to do that."

Aside from her comments, Minaj told the BET Awards audience that she planned to release her next record, The Pink Print, before the year is up. The first single she has released from the album is an anti-hater ballad, "Pills N Potion," for which she made a video that featured the Game, who loses his head — literally — in the clip.
