Three 6 Mafia’s Juicy J has finally come forward to clear the air on rumors and accusations which suggest he came to the mercy of ghostwriting to put together his infectious “Bandz a Make Her Dance” anthem.
Juicy blamed his success for fueling the ghostwriting gossip and firmly emphasized his hit’s authenticity.
“That’s a lie,” Juicy J said on Wednesday’s (May 15) “RapFix Live.” “You know when you have success man, folks will always try to put you down and try to trip you up. I keep movin’, man. I’m a hustler, man. I don’t care about negative. I don’t think about all that bull. I just get money man. I don’t give a damn, man. My bank account will not decrease. I’m on tour; it’s sold out, so it’s increasing. I’m blessed out here, so I don’t involve myself with negativity. I’m a positive guy, man.” (MTV)
Rap newcomer Yoyo Munie raised eyebrows after making the serious accusations this month.
“That’s what I’m mad about. He gets hooks from me, gives them to other people, and he’s supposed to be putting me on, and he don’t put me on.” (Complex)
To add fuel to the fire, former Three 6 Mafia affiliate Gangsta Boo backed up Munie’s claims.
“I know a couple of his writers. One of my homeboys wrote ‘Bandz’ for him. … He was the co-president of Hypnotized Minds, which spawned us. I think he’s a hustler, so I definitely wasn’t surprised about his success at all.” (BET)
Last summer, “Bandz” producer Mike Will Made It hit up SOHH to discuss how the collaboration came together.
“[I decided to give the song to Juicy J] because I grew up up as a Three 6 [Mafia] fan. Pretty much, there’s certain beats that I know Juicy J will act a fool on. [He] is a real creative man — from the beats all the way to the flows. I just knew Juicy would do something real creative to it. The way that the track was flowing, man, I just gave it to him, and sure enough he ended up liking that track along [with] another track he did for my mixtape called ‘Cash Everywhere’ that I put Ace Hood on for my mixtape, Established 1989. He ended up liking both of those.” (SOHH Singled Out)
