Now that the song has been out for a while, Soulja Boy is claiming he wrote Willow Smith's "Whip My Hair," according to Idolator.

Yeah right, I'm calling bullshit. On Sunday, Soulja Boy (@SouljaBoy) tweeted in self-important all caps, "YES ITS TRUE I WROTE 'WHIP MY HAIR' FOR WILLOW SMITH. THATS WHY SHE SAYS HOP OUT THE BED TURN MY SWAG ON. WE GETTING $$$ 2011 NO GAMES." ...Whatever that means.

In any case, Soulja Boy is not listed by ASCAP as a writer of "Whip My Hair."

Sorry, Soulja Boy, but your worthless publicity stunt isn't working out. Nobody believes you, and this is just pathetic. Sorry that your latest album flopped, but as I've said time and time again, we can't all be winners.
