skillz – ghostwriter lyrics


“mad sk!llz” “on the real”
“i’ll probably make more money off your album than you” (repeat 3x)
“mad sk!llz” “on the real” check it
“i’m going to tell you once, and only once”

[verse 1]
first of all, i ain’t even want to make this sh-t
there’s a lot of rap cats out here faking the sh-t
i’m a ghostwriter, i’m the cat that you don’t see
i write hits for rappers you like and charge ’em a fee
yo, don’t get me wrong dog, it’s the cheddar that counts
but f-ck that n-gga [puff daddy] ’cause his f-cking check bounced
you thought [foxy brown’s] little single was hot?
i wrote that sh-t five minutes in a parking lot
i’m the one that your man [ma$e] had to go and get
’cause he smoked too much lye, couldn’t write his own sh-t
now ______ a&r, he on my answering machine sick
hollering in my phone, “sk!llz, can you write to this?”
sure, for stacks, n-gga, i make your act bigger
but f-ck [jermaine dupri] and his whole label ’cause i ain’t never get my plaque, n-gga
jadakiss told y’all cats and that’s that
y’all have our ascap or get your -ss capped

“mad sk!llz” “ghost writer, and for the right price
i can even make yo’ sh-t tighter” –] jay z (repeat 3x)
“mad sk!llz” “ghostwriter” say what
“when my pen hits the paper, awwww sh-t!” –] kane

[verse 2]
now that fool ______ can’t flow, but his crew is sick
but see he got long dough, so wait til you hear his new sh-t
i did two songs for ______ ’til they dough got straight
and even ______ from the west coast owe me some cake
remember the little kids, the one that was in ______ group?
i’m the reason you thought they lil raps was so cute
i had a hundred songs on the billboard list
ask again, dog, how i got your deal on my wrist
i did done nba cats and nfl
but i stopped in ’97 ’cause they sh-t don’t sell
now ______ paid up ’cause she was owing me stacks
who in the h-ll you think had that chicken flowing like that?
i hate writing for ______ ’cause he take too long
crying about the price, i hit him with two f-cking songs!
ran up in ______’s office and wrecked his staff
’cause it’s been two years and dog ain’t paid the second half


[verse 3]
so if you just signed, trust me dog, you can’t touch it
don’t ask your label for sk!llz, ’cause that ain’t in your budget
y’all cats polly for chips, i mingle for mills
i turn your whole album into a single deal
i stopped writing for ______ ’cause that fool don’t get it
booking long sessions and he punch in every five minutes
where my ones, n-gga? what the f-ck i look like?
and his man ______ got mad ’cause he couldn’t get the hook right
i spit ______ and we don’t see eye to eye
so i politely took his rollie up to bmi
i’m the one that gave ______ his brand new sound
i did his last two albums without even writing ’em down
and for ______ from the south, dog you shook
stop bouncing on stage n-gga like you wrote that hook
your favorite rappers’ songs? i put the flames in it
y’all keep f-cking around, i’mma put this back out with your names in it
