Kanye West and D-Dot

Kanye's been at the center of a similar controversy before — but in this case he was the one who supposedly wasn't getting credit. Kanye was a protégé of Deric "D-Dot" Angelettie and Yeezy hinted he ghost-produced for his mentor on his 2004 song "Last Call," explaining, "I was messin with D-Dot also. People ...started talking about the ghost production. But that's how I got in the game." D-Dot wasn't feeling the implications, telling XXL last year, "He didn't do right by his O.G... I didn't rob him. All that ghost production s--t he started and had the world makin' 'em think that he did everything.”
