Luther ‘Uncle Luke’ Campbell has always said and done what he wants to. The former 2 Live Crew frontman did an interview with WatchLOUD and took the conversation somewhere else. Luke was asked about ghostwriting in hip hop, which then turned into the difference between R&B singers not writing their lyrics and rappers. Uncle Luke had an answer for the shift but not what you may have expected.

It used to be a difference. Before Kanye West, rappers wasn’t wifing all these hoes. Rappers would be secure with their woman. When you look at Ice Cube, he’s always been with his wife. You look at Will Smith – he’s always been with [Jada Pinkett Smith]. Hip Hop was different. We didn’t get caught up in the Hollywood thing.We didn’t get caught up in the Hollywood thing, where, ok rappers are now marrying Hollywood girls, leaving one, going to the next one, leaving this one. We didn’t do that. I mean, we were like real secure. We wasn’t marrying girls or wifing girls for the Internet to blow up.

A very interesting take, while the connection to ghostwriting is up for debate there is a conversation to be had. Contrary to what some lyrics may say, most rappers are and have been married to one woman most of their careers. Yet, there does seem to be a shift since Kanye West became notable.

West of course was with Amber Rose for a long time and now is married to Kim Kardashian. Not to call any of them hoes, but hip hop did seem to shy away from dating the women of Hollywood prior to this decade. There are probably exceptions of course, but how many women were really becoming celebrities based off who they were dating prior 2005?
