'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.

The only thing more retarded than the song "Whip My Hair" is the idea that there is more than one douchebag out there who thinks it is worth fighting for credit for it. It's like the kids on the short bus fighting for who gets last place in a 15 foot race.

Retarded or not, the man's rollin' in the dough, as is his co-writer, Janae Ratliff. Half of what is played on the radio these days isn't good at all, but if it's catchy, it'll bring in a lot of money for whoever is registered with ASCAP as the songwriter(s). Sadly, catchy songs sell better than good songs sometimes. For instance, it doesn't get much crappier than a song like "Shots" by LMFAO, but a lot of people think it's catchy, so it gets more air time than better songs by better musicians.

The writer of that "retarded" song made two million dollars in one month off of it. I don't know about you, but I would be happy to take credit for it.
