The Bounce artist just wants her props
GameOva Reedy’s “For That D*ck” has been completely unavoidable for months in the city of New Orleans. Thanks to a recent internet challenge with entries coming from names as disparate as Erykah Badu and Cardi B, the whole world is getting in on the action.
Now that the song is blowing up, Reedy is looking for her credit. In a new video, the bounce artist explains how the song came about and asks for her props. Reedy said that the song came spontaneously from a show she was performing.
“I was so hype off the crowd, I started rapping,” she said. “It just came to my head and I started rapping, the crowd went crazy so every show I would perform at, I would always just rap it and everybody was like, you know, make it a song.”
That song blew up after fans started rapping about various things they would do for some particularly good d under the hashtag #ForTheD*ckChallenge. Some huge names have jumped in, and Reedy is a big fan of some of the entries.
“I love Cardi B’s freestyle, I love Erykah Badu, Michael Blackson, everybody who I seen, I loved it,” Reedy said. “The actor, the cop. I loved it all. I loved everybody who did it, it’s just made me like I’m a trendsetter.”
There’s just one problem with “D*ck” being on a million people’s tongues, Reedy isn’t getting any credit for it.
“I haven’t received no extra benefits from this song whatsoever,” she explained. “Not a single dime, no endorsements, no anything. I’m highly upset because I’m not getting the credit that I deserve and today was the first day I ever spoke on it. I just kept ignoring it, but when you wake up everyday and everybody’s tagging you in something and everybody’s giving this girl credit for something that she didn’t create, it don’t matter if she didn’t say the exact words that I said but she did say ‘for that d*ck.’ When I did it, a lot of people liked it and other people said it was stupid. But now, it’s a bunch of d*ckriders, acting like it’s all good and it’s all that. Everybody’s doing it but I did this.”
Even that simple request for credit came with some backpedaling from Reedy, who clearly doesn’t want to sound bitter or upset. She said that she wants everyone to have a good time with it, as long as they understand that she’s the originator of the trend.
“I’m loving the fact that the celebrities are doing it,” she concludes. “I’m loving that, I just want them to know where it came from, that’s all. I’m not mad at anybody, I’m loving it. I just want people to know where it came from, it came from me. Obama could do it, Donald Trump could do it, as long as he posts, ‘I got this from Reedy, inspired by Reedy,’ I don’t care who do it, just let it be known who did it first.”
