Ghostwriter Of The Week: Nas
Apparently Nas co-wrote Will Smith’s post Fresh Prince dalliance with the pop charts, Gettin Jiggy With It. There was initially some conjecture but he has since stated the he wrote four or five other tracks on the album while helping Big Willie co-write his biggest charting hit since Boom Shake The Room.
At a guess, i’d say it was a connect through mega producers the Trackmasterz aka Poke and Tone who Nasty worked closely with on It Was Written and were responsible for the production on Gettin Jiggy With It around the same time. Both the Trackmasterz and Nas were managed by industry big-wig (and known sly muthafka) Steve Stoute at the time also.
Either way Nas is this weeks recipient of Ghostwriter of the Week!
