Ghostwriting has been around for quite some time now. A ghostwriter is someone who possesses the talent of understanding how a singer or rapper connects with his or her audience and writes a song writer for hire that artist to sing keeping that connection in mind. In ghostwriting, the ghostwriter does not get credit for writing the song nor do they have their name mentioned anywhere. However, they are given some financial compensation for their work. Sounds wrong to let another artist take all the credit for your hard work but there aspects of ghostwriting that are not so bad. It gradually helps you polish your skills as a writer and become a professional. You get to expand your creativity and have fun doing it.

Dayvon Daquan Bennett (August 9, 1994 – November 6, 2020) This was the real King Von. A real street nigga. Somewhere along the way that term has been confused with a guy that is reckless, doesn’t care about much and does anything to get where he wants to go. A guy that disregards the law, takes lives and is unable to change. By November 2020, King Von was a rapper on the rise, that could’ve easily settled into a life free of whatever troubles he was conditioned to think was a way of life. He beat a murder charge, came home to a friend already established in the music industry (Lil Durk), that wanted nothing more than to see him succeed, his credibility attached and etched in stone, a look that fit the part, a following inherited from all the attention his side of town was receiving, and most importantly, a natural talent for music and charisma to be everything required of a star in today’s hip hop world. But with all that, also by November 2020, he was killed in the streets, virtually alone, holding on to the last bit of his life. To me King Von was well on his way to becoming the best story telling artist in the game and household name. What happened? Here are 3 reasons King Von’s growth as a musician was stunted.
Juice Wrld (born Jarad Anthony Higgins) was born December 2, 1998, and sadly died due to a drug overdose on December 8, 2019. When listening to Juice's music now is almost eerie knowing what happened to him, because in most of Juice's music he talks about taking pills and drinking lean, and from an outside view many people see Juice as a terrible influences on the younger generation but i'm here to tell you why he isn't. Juice's music doesn't only just talk about taking drugs and being with women, no Juice did much more through his music then that. In many of Juice's tracks he talks about many relatable troubles of a young adult and teen. In his first album 'Goodbye and Good Riddance', Juice's talks about dealing with heartbreak, and feeling numb and alone, like he has no one, songs like 'All Girls Are The Same', 'I'm Still', 'Candles', and 'Scared of Love' talk about dealing with heartbreak and have not only helped me but so many others get through tough times, and in my eyes is the best album ever made.

Hi, and welcome back to Silver Linings, where the maligned, forgotten, and ignored are at the mic. Thanks to my significant other Ally, I have gotten very acquainted with South Korea's music scene. Also thanks to her, my acquaintance with the scene doesn't start or end at K-Pop. I've already done four articles pointing to acts from the area worth listening to if you're sick of BTS or BlackPink, but there are so many more. Today, I'm turning the focus to the rappers. See, for the longest time, it was thought that, due to the unusual structure of the language, rap was impossible in Korean. However, people like Verbal Jint have proven otherwise, and the rap scene exploded over there. It got to the point that idol groups were making a point of including rappers in their line-ups. Of course, RM, Suga, and J-Hope from BTS are the most famous examples, but they're far from the only ones. Today, I'm turning the spotlight to ten Korean rappers who've got the flow to rival the best of our hip-hop artists. Some are part of idol groups, some are still underground, but they can all bust a rhyme like few can.
