Danja News

It's Nick here with your weekly Danja fix. First, the news. Danja's song on T.I.'s newest is titled "Tell 'Em I Said That."

I decided to take a page from J-Boogie's book and start a little conspiracy theory: Danja's ghost-productions. Liner notes for Danja tracks read like this: "Danjahandz Muzik (All rights o/b/o itself and Danjahandz Muzik adm. by W.B.M. Nysuc Corp.) (SESAC)." SESAC, his publishing company, tells me some interesting stuff. First of all, it lists some unreleased Justin Timberlake and Katharine McPhee songs:

L'ARC EN CIEL
Publishers:
Danjahandz Muzik
(i) Tennman Tunes
(i) Virginia Beach
W B M Music Corp
(i) W B Music Corp
Writers:
Floyd Nathaniel Hills
(i) Justin Timberlake
(i) Tim Mosley
SESAC Work Number:

and

DON'T TELL ME
Publishers:
(i) Bootleggers Stop
Danjahandz Muzik
Jahqae Joints
(i) Lily Dog Music
(i) Universal Music Publ
Universal-PolyGram Intl T
W B M Music Corp
Writers:
Bale'wa M Muhammad
(i) Candice Clotiel Nelson
Floyd Nathaniel Hills
(i) Katharine McPhee
SESAC Work Number:
6317482

and these two strange songs with seemingly no artist, but the same writing team as Katharine McPhee's:

TAKE ME THERE
Publishers:
Danjahandz Muzik
(i) Street Lyrics Publishing
W B M Music Corp
(i) W B Music Corp
Writers:
(i) Corte Ellis
Floyd Nathaniel Hills
SESAC Work Number:
6305150

SOME TYPE OF WAY
Publishers:
(i) Bootleggers Stop
Danjahandz Muzik
(i) Interior Music Corp.
Jahqae Joints
(i) Songs Of Universal, Inc.
(i) Universal MCA Music Publi
Universal-PolyGram Intl T
Writers:
Bale'wa M Muhammad
(i) Candice Clotiel Nelson
(i) David Morris
Floyd Nathaniel Hills
SESAC Work Number:
6247800

But that's beside the point. SESAC lists Danja as a writer of Utada's "Exodus '04", "Let Me Give You My Love", and "Wonder Bout" and Jennifer Lopez's "He'll Be Back." It doesn't list Xzibit's "Hey Now (Mean Muggin)", but Tim does shout him out at the end of the song. Finally, SESAC lists this song under Danja's repertoire:

GET DOWN
Publishers:
Danjahandz Muzik
(i) UNKNOWN
(i) Virginia Beach
Writers:
Floyd Nathaniel Hills
(i) Timothy Mosely
(i) Unaffiliated
SESAC Work Number:
6016710

Sounds like N.O.R.E.'s "Get Down (Ooou Ooou)" to me. What do y'all think?

Oh and Some Type Of Way is a pretty old track, at least it was registered quit some time before the clips Open Toes and Each Other even leaked, so I don't think it was for her, can't be certain o course...
