Several rappers sat down to give their takes on ghostwriting in the culture of Hip Hop, and according to Vic Mensa, a lot of y'alls favorite rappers are using them.

"Your favorite rapper is using a ghostwriter, and that's because ghostwriting is not this cardinal sin that people have made it out to be, you know what I am saying?" he told XXL. "I see it as collaboration... I think for rap becomes kind of problematic in like a purist sense, well, because we look to rap to be like the real reflection of these artists' lives or like from its origin, you know what I mean, reflecting the things that are happening in the streets or in the community... So when somebody is giving you a whole song to rap, so then it's not really your life, you know?"

The publication also spoke to Jim Jones, Jermaine Dupri, Moneybagg Yo, Maino, Yella Beezy and more about the issue... check out the clip below.

This comes just days after Drake's Rap Radar interview where he denied ever using ghostwriters for his music.

"I pulled my weight when it came to my pen...anybody that know me knows that my strongest talent is writing," he said.
