21 Savage feels like he should be getting credit after claiming he came up with the word “yessirskiii.” Four days after dropping his Savage Mode 2 album with Metro Boomin, the Atlanta rapper has called out other rappers for using the word in their songs and wants to get paid for it.
“I need 50% of every song that come out with a yessirskiii hook,” he told Twitter on Monday (October 5). “Y’all getting outrageous with da biting. I gotta get a rabies shot at dis point.”
While 21 didn’t mention anyone specifically, Freebandz rapper Doe Boy responded to the tweet by saying he doesn’t owe him anything, but thinks Lil Pump does.
“Damn Pump owe 50% for ‘Yessirski’,” he wrote. “Ion owe nobody shit… End of story.”
Future’s artist just released a song called “Yessirski” in collaboration with Southside on Friday (October 2). What’s also interesting is the fact Southside is a frequent collaborator of 21’s, and even produced “Glock in My Lap” on Savage Mode 2.
Later on Monday (October 5), Doe Boy came through with receipts to prove he didn’t steal the word from 21. The rapper posted the song “What It Dooski” by Cleveland group ABM Officialz to back up his point.
“My whole hood / city BEEN talking inna ‘Ski,’ he said. “Check da dates and quit asking me where I got it from *drops mic*.”
Doe Boy is also from Cleveland and the ABM song was released in 2007.

If 21 is serious about making “yessirskiii” his own, he might run in to a bit trouble. In March 2019, Cardi B attempted to trademark the word “okurrr,” but her request was denied. According to The Guardian, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office claimed it was a “commonplace term … used in the drag community and by celebrities as an alternate way of saying ‘OK’ or ‘something that is said to affirm when someone is being put in their place.”
