(AllHipHop Rumors) One thing is for sure, and two things are for certain! We don’t believe that Black Thought of The Roots needed a ghostwriter in his career. The man has been rapping forever and is one of the most revered lyricists is in Hip-Hop. He’s like the best RIGHT NOW, along with Royce Da 5’9″.
The singer Jaguar Wright said a lot of things about a lot of people, and most of those things were bad. But from a pure Hip-Hop point of you, the idea that Black Thought had ghost riders is one of the most unsettling things I’ve heard in a long time. Obviously, this is not including the Common sexual impropriety claims!
Dice Raw, one of the other crewmembers, has recently stepped in to check that notion. He is one of the other dope rappers in The Roots collective from Philly. He is also on “Clones” with Malik B and has always been nice. He’s also written quite a few hooks in songs with The Roots also too. So it needs to be stated that he is dope in his own right! Matter of fact, Jaguar Wright said DICE RAW was one of the Black Thought ghostwriters, not just Malik B. He said, “Ni99as from my era don’t believe in ghostwriting!!!!! I never did it! Never will! That’s real spill!!!!! The only thing: this tweet was deleted. Why? Maybe typos, maybe something else. I don’t know.
He seems to deny that Black Thought has ever used ghostwriters and even seems offended. Peep:
Right but here’s the thing she’s our sister you never heard Black Thought say the word bitch on record or anyone for that matter on a Roots album we not going call her out her name. We going pray for her to come out of this healed. Mental illness is real. https://t.co/YCgJU5PomF

The other thing is that he makes the claim the Jaguar Wright is mentally ill and to pray for her. Now that part I am not sure about, because the sources I am getting are saying that she is telling enough truths to be considered a problem. Her mental health isn’t really in question – the facts are! I will leave it at that!
Mental Illness is real….but that doesn't make her incapable of being a truth teller.

Good night music fans, and remember Black Thought is one of the greatest to ever do it
