Was The Game 50 Cent’s Ghostwriter? Wack 100 and The Game were on Clubhouse when Wack revealed The Game wrote portions of 50’s Get Rich or Die Trying Someone asked The Game a question about 50 writing for him. He said on his The Documentary 50 wrote what you heard him say but 50 did not write anything for him. Wack said The Game wrote What Up Gangsta for 50. The Game said he has written for other people but he does not beat his chest about it. He has written for Dr. Dre and he said he did write portions of Get Rich or Die Trying and for G-Unit. Does it matter more in hip hop than in any other genre of music whether the artist writes their own lyrics? Do you care if your favorite artist writes their own stuff?
