Amidst the ongoing controversy about the use of ghost producers, music fans in general were shocked that such a practice even exists. While it is true that ghost producers and ghost songwriters have been around as long as the music business itself, it is just now becoming an issue with superstar DJs with many claiming that all the tracks they release are completely their own material. Some, such as Papi Gordo himself, even have the audacity to go and make a video tutorial to prove exactly what they don’t know about making that “sound very very way more stronger.”
As controversial as the practice of ghost producing may be, it is still somewhat of a legitimate business practice in that the ghost producer gets paid handsomely for the work he does and through that, the resulting work is then owned by the person who commissioned his work. An entirely different issue however is making huge amounts of money from these songs while not paying for the tools that they use.
It is no secret that Carnage uses ghost producers but if he has the money and lacks the artistic integrity to do so, then by all means do your thing Carnage. What I don’t understand is how someone who claims to be such a baller could not even be bothered to buy a $150 program that he claims to use in so many of his tracks? Not only is it idiotic to get in front of a camera and talk about your “thumpier, tonal, Zeythoven-ish type kicks,” but it is also completely unprofessional and disrespectful to the producers who work hard and pay for their tools to act like making money off of pirated synths doesn’t matter. I mean at least put some effort into pretending how great of a producer you are and we might actually believe you. But if you do not understand that don’t worry, Lennar Digital would be more than happy to explain that to you.
