'Whip My Hair' Songwriter Lashes Back at Soulja Boy With Diss Track
What's the real deal: did Soulja Boy actually write Willow Smith's smash hit "Whip My Hair"? Hell no, but he did receive a bit of songwriting credit for a line that came from his own song, "Turn My Swag On."
Ronald "Jukebox" Jackson is less than thrilled by the songwriting claim made by Soulja Boy last week, according to Billboard.
In fact, he's so pissed that he has addressed the situation by making a diss track, which uses the back beat from "Whip My Hair," and it's authoritative and fantastic.
In addition, Jukebox, one of the songwriters actually credited with the song, spilled his feelings on Twitter with some clever sass by writing, "Soulja boy wrote whip my hair??..and waka flaka wrote 'thriller' right? lol." A second tweet that he wrote said, "My house must be POPPIN! cuz i had NO IDEA soulja was in my house when i did that song! #invisibleswag??" Way to stick it to the man, Jukebox!
Billboard seems to be the only source with Jukebox's diss track. Give it a listen and prepare to say, "awwww yeah" when it's over.
