Favourite Song Writers?


Recommended Posts

When I think of this in the terms of hip-hop and lyricists Rakim is the name for me that immediately stands out, the age in which he wrote Paid In Full was truly remarkable, doing such things for one so young. I mean he never got the nickname God for nothing did he?

 

When I think of music as a whole I'd probably go for Ian Curtis and the Morrissey/Marr combination.

50 Cent :lol:

 

I'd just like to make it clear that my comment should in no way be taken to mean that I think 50 Cent is a good song writer, or even a song writer at all.

 

I don't understand the hating towards 50. He is a great rapper and makes brilliant music His latest song with Timbaland and JT is better than a load of rap songs out at the moment. yes his arrogant but there is a reason why he has sold so many hits and why alot of hip hop fans rate him. its because he makes some brilliant tracks.
