Will Smiff = Ghostwritten by Royce da 5'9''?

When I did my infamous Will Smith review, nhjic, I joked a little about Will biting a line from Royce, as if he even listened to Royce:

And then, he quotes Royce Da 5'9'' (possibly unintentionally): "a buncha cliques I probably rap circles around". I'm pretty sure some guy "co-wrote" this shit, Kanye West-style, since its about the only time when he's using metaphors and shit. Wait, Royce ghostwrote for Dre, right?

I was re-listening to Royce's "Boom", which the line about cliques and circles is found. And I relive that day like it was yesterday. Maybe it was yesterday. I don't know. But coincidentally, I found another line that Will borrowed. I thought, this shit wasnt unintentional. The ironic part is the Will song makes it a point how he's not following anybody and he's his own man and what not. Here's the lyrics of the chorus:

"Why should I try to sound like ya'll sound
That's what's wrong with the rap game right now
Man, it's like a circus wit a bunch of clowns
Wit a bunch of clicks I'll probably rap circles around

Sez Royce Nickel-Nine:
"Rap now is a circus of clowns
A whole lotta lip from cliques I probably rap circles around

So of course there's 2 ways to interpret this.

Inner conspiracy theorist: This shit was ghostwritten by Royce. There's always been rumors It's a well-known fact that Will gets shit ghostwritten. It's a well-known fact that Royce was a ghostwriter for Dr. Dre. And Royce is lettin us know he wrote that shit by self-referencing himself, also making fun of Willie, who says "Original - A first form from which varieties arise / An authentic work of art as opposed to an imitation or reproduction"

Person who assumes the best: Will is being very smart. Not only is he talking about people doing the same shit over and over, but he does it himself to show how the rap game corrupts its artists.

As you can see, "Person who assumes the best" is an idiot.
Final veredict: Royce wrote for Will, Kanye West-style. No homo.

Has anyone noticed how teh ghey the lyrics to "Mothership Connection" are?

"If you hear any noise
It's just me and the boys
Hit me
Stop, and let me ride

"If you hear noise...its me and the boys"? "Hit me"? "Let me ride"? At least put a no homo or two in there, man. Plus there's this pic of George Clinton and Anthony the Crackhead from RHCP:

It's probably just a coincidence. I don't think there are any conspiracy theories involved.
