EXCLUSIVE: Snootie Wild Says Writing Lyrics Is Like Lying, Recording "Yayo" in 30 Minutes + MORE (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) There isn’t a shortage of paper and pens but writing lyrics could be a thing of the past. In our EXCLUSIVE interview, Snootie Wild explains why he does not write lyrics and why he

Jay Z, Common, Lil Wayne and tons of other rappers have admitted to not writing lyrics for a variety of reasons. Some do not write as to save time by freestyling the song, but according to Snootie Wild, he does not write due to him being honest:

My motto is ‘if you got to write it you lying.’ If you ain’t lying then you have to think too hard on something to cover up the truth. What I spit is facts and when you freestyling you can’t hold back truth. It’s going to slip up.

Wild admits that he “freestyled ‘Yayo’ in a car” and recorded the song in 30 minutes.

As a teenager, Snootie Wild played basketball until he was stabbed in the leg at 17 years old. Snootie says the end of his basketball aspirations led to his disinterest in the NBA:

I was young when that happened. About 16, 17. Due to the point I kind of cared about it so much that I kind of made myself not be interested in it. It came to the point now where I don’t watch basketball too much anymore.

    This guy knows nothing about writing lyrics. Lying has nothing to do with it. It’s actually easier to lie while you’re freestyling.

    Scarface writes his shit!

    SMMFH! Some of these new rappers keep showing how dumb they really are. To whoever wrote this article Jay, Wayne, Common etc actually do write. The difference is they don’t write on paper but in their head. They may come up with a few bars and go in the booth to spit those bars then rinse and repeat. They may also listen to a beat for a while and write a verse in their head and then go in the booth to spit that verse.

    Actually, when u freestyling, ur imagination is going a hundred miles a minute trying to keep up. So in order to give ur mouth a chance to catch up, ur brain puts fillers a.k.a. lies and bullshit in order to keep the freestyle going. Unless ur recording the freestyle, then stop when u get stuck and pick up where u left off.

    If anyone is asking how I know this, I’ve been studying the brainwaves of rappers for years in my basement. Each subject is given a $50 dollar gift card for their participation.

      I would say both cause freestyling you could slip up and say some ish you didn’t mean to say that’s real …. it can def go both ways …
