The accused penmen, Jay Electronica and stic.man of dead prez, both came out on Twitter to deny the allegations.
MTV ran into Roc Nation’s Jay Electronica at Jay-Z’s Made In America Festival over the weekend, and the New Orleans rapper finally put a rest to the rumors once and for all, stating:
“Nas is one of the gods, one of the greatest of all time, one of the godfathers of even my own style. I met him on a humble submission and he is one of the greatest ever. He never has or never will need a ghostwriter. He’s legendary, his pen game is unquestionable. Salute to Nas. And all of the other bullsh*t is just bullsh*t.”
Welp, there you have it.
