Juicy J Accused of Using Ghostwriter for "Bandz a Make Her Dance"

Ex-Three 6 Mafia member exposes Juicy J.

Published May 14, 2013

Ghostwriting controversy in hip hop could be major deal (remember the accusations lodged against Nas?). Gangsta Boo may have been banking on just that when she let it loose that someone wrote "Bandz a Make Her Dance" for Juicy J. The ex-Three 6 Mafia member exposed Juicy for holding a grudge against her and having his biggest hit ghostwritten. "I know a couple of his writers," she told Vlad TV. "One of my homeboys wrote 'Bandz' for him."

When prodded to reiterate the allegations, she paused, laughed, and replied to the question, "Oh, so Juicy didn't write 'Bandz himself?' "[That's] not what I hear," she said. "Not what I hear at all."

After revealing that juicy tidbit, Gangsta Boo offered a little praise. "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."  

But that doesn't mean she's ready to bury the beef. "As many millions I made you n---a, you should be kissing my f---in' a--," she concluded.

Juicy hasn't responded to the claims, and given their ongoing rift, Boo may not be the most credible source when it comes to J's current dealings. Since becoming the first lady of Three 6, the Memphis native's relationship with her one-time crew has fizzled. She left the clique over money disputes following the 2000 release of When the Smoke Clears: Sixty 6, Sixty 1.

The timing of Gangsta Boo's Juicy J jabs is also suspect since she's releasing a music video as early as this weekend.

On the contrary, she also admitted that she hadn't even seen Juicy in person in the past ten years, so the insight might not be all its hyped up to be. Besides, rappers tapping others to write their music is nothing new. Dr. Dre, Diddy, Trina and even hip-hop legend Big Daddy Kane are some of the rap stars who have commissioned the help of lyrical wordsmiths.
