I didn’t even realize there was a 50 feature in the new SPIN with Amy Winehouse on the cover, but they went ahead and posted the writer’s entire transcript and it has some keel-over-laughing gems. The best part is where the writer is talking to 50 about not cursing on records and being artistic. He brings up Ghostface, and in between scoffs, Tony Yayo claims that some kid named Superb from Far Rockaway wrote the entire album. Just go here, because you really have to read this shit. Other than that it’s a pretty good interview. Curtis even takes a moment to stick up for his baby moms other baby daddy.
Related: Does anybody remember Ghost ever saying he wasn’t gonna curse on record anymore? Because I sure don’t.
EDIT: Ok, a reader just hit me up and jogged my memory. Superb was a kid from Rae’s American Cream Team, who allegedly claimed to have written most of SC. I vaguely recall hearing something like that. Supposedly there is an mp3 of a jail phone call from him where he speaks on it, as referenced in this wutang-corp.com thread. If it exists and somebody has it, break down. Props to David for the info.
UPDATE: Maura from Idolator was kind enough to point me to the interview where Ghost claimed he wasn’t gonna curse on his next album. I remember when OhWord posted it, I was on Ghost overload and I meant to go back and listen, but never did. Shame on a ninja.
UPDATE 2: Case closed. Here’s the Superb phone call. Props to Alex
