Twista Calls Out...MC Lyte?

Responding to the Nas ghostwriting controversy in a recent interview with MsDramaTV, Twista sparked a new one: "Hip hop started with artists who didn't write their lyrics," he said. "If you study back and look at the first rap songs that came out, some of the rappers didn't write lyrics for some of their songs. I know there are songs, like LL [Cool J] helped MC Lyte write certain songs, or this person helped this person. Always in hip hop that's been going on."
