With the recent Meek Mill vs Drake beef putting ghostwriting back in the spotlight, this Sunday there’ll be another chance to listen to DJ Semtex on BBC Radio 1 and 1xtra Stories exploring the history of ghostwriting in Hip-Hop.
Stop comparing drake to me too…. He don't write his own raps! That's why he ain't tweet my album because we found out! ?
