So how would you guys do this?  I'm doing the song writing credits for The Fate of the Furious and there is a rapper who goes by PnB Rock but has no credits in the CLT under this.  In one song is credited as Rakim Allen.  In another song he is credited as Rakim Hasheem Allen.  Neither name has any previous credits in the CLT.

What name should I enter him as?  It doesn't seem sense to put both names in there, but I have no other solution until he has another CLT entry?

Since his real name doesn't currently exist in the database, I would enter his credited stage name "PnB Rock" in the First Name field for the song writer.

Other examples of song writers in the database using stage names are Madonna and Sting.

His stage name has no credits in the database either, so that's incorrect.

At this point you just pick one of the two credited, and enter the other as credited as.

If he's credited in two songs only, I would pick the first variant which appears in the credits and added the second one as credited as.
