There have been debates all over social media about ghost writing after Lil Yachty was seen in City Girls’ “Act Up” video showing them which lyrics to rap. Some question the credibility of the song while others don’t think it’s a big deal as long as the song sounds good.
Cardi B has been accused of not writing her raps and took to social media today to discuss the Act Up ghost writing topic. She doesn’t care that the City Girls didn’t write it as people will still rap along to the song and have the “Real a** b*tch give a f*ck about a n*gga” energy from the song anyway.
Cardi also added that women will still rap the Act Up lyrics in the City Girls’ accent and not Yachty’s. She also thinks that they’ll still rap to their other songs like “Season.”
At this point, it seems like ghost writing has been more acceptable in rap. Many remember Meek Mill calling out Drake in the summer of 2015 for not writing his raps on their collab song “R.I.C.O.” but the two buried their beef last year and people still accept Drake for the star he is despite the ghost writing controversy.
