He recently discussed how his Def Jam labelmate, The-Dream, turned down a chance to appear on the new album.
"No Dream, nah, Dream fronted on me," Ghost explained in an interview. "Yeah, radio killer f*kin fronted. Yeah, it's Def Jam but you know certain n*ggas get cocky, these little n*ggas. It is what it is though. I ain't gonna complain about it but don't give me your f*ckin' number and tell me you gonna do something -- and renege on me. That's these lil' n*ggas. It's different eras. These different eras mean a lot. This is the bullsh*t era." (Radio Planet TV)
Ghost also talked with SOHH earlier this summer and said he was given the cold shoulder by other mainstream singers.
"I had the list in my head but my list ain't work," Ghost said. "These R&B cats is wild yo but some people heard my work and they just jumped on it. Like John Legend, he heard what I was doing and he just wanted to get on it. Same thing with Raheem DeVaughn. I wanted Alicia Keys, I reached out to Avant. Tamia but you know how it is with women. They just stood the kid up. They ain't get back so I had to just go with the fellas." (SOHH)
Wizard of Poetry flys onto store shelves Tuesday, September 29th via Def Jam Records.
