I always enjoy hearing Gift Of Gab destroy a track. I was fortunate enough to work with Gift Of Gab for about 3 years. I got to really learn about him and how he approaches “guest appearance” tracks. He really has a straight forward methodology that seems to not be that of radio play these days. He told me that when someone comes to him to do a track he knows that he has to write the best raps he has ever written. He wants to have the best verse ALWAYS. Which if your anything like “LIL WAYNE” you don’t have time to write raps. You don’t have time to think of anything. You just show up, freestyle incoherent noises through a vocoder, and get paid. So my question to the world is who should be getting paid?
