Soulja Boy Did Not Write ‘Whip My Hair’, But May Still Get Paid Anyway


Rapper Soulja Boy has sparked controversy in the world of  Twitter after declaring he is the man responsible for the catchy lyrics to the Willow Smith hit song “Whip My Hair.”

The real producers of the track have slammed that claim as a lie, but they may still have to pay Soulja Boy anyway. 

The Crank That (Soulja Boy) hitmaker, real name DeAndre Way, took to the microblogging site on Sunday (02Jan11) and took credit for the track, which has catapulted Hollywood star Will Smith‘s 10-year-old daughter into the pop charts.

Referring to a snippet from his 2009 single Turn My Sway On, he wrote, “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 (sic).”

The hip-hop star’s claim immediately came under scrutiny when it was retweeted by followers across the world – because songwriting team Ronald Jackson and Janae Rockwell are listed as the brains behind Whip My Hair.

Smith’s representatives had yet to comment on Soulja Boy’s at press-time.

However, there may be an ounce of truth to Soulja Boy’s claim after all – he is reported to have trademarked the phrase, “Turn my swag on”, meaning Smith’s song producers would have had to compensate the rapper for using the wording.
