If  Three 6 Mafia rapper Juicy J wanted to see some girls twerk for free, all he had to do was visit World Star Hip Hop (WSHH). He had to have known this, since he partnered with the website to publicize a $50,000 scholarship for young Black women.

But this week, news surfaced that Juicy J had, in fact, awarded a scholarship to a 19 year-old  college student, also a single mother…who didn’t twerk in her submission video. Apparently, neither the official WSHH video promoting the scholarship nor the actual rules required twerking.

In another clip announcing the winner, the rapper says,”Fifty thousand dollars is a lot of money, and I don’t want to waste it on some chick just twerking her a**.  Read the rules! See that’s what you get for shaking your a** and thinking you would get some money. It’s not always about shaking your a**.”
