It Ain't My Fault was written by Smokey Johnson and Wardell Quezergue in 1964. Introduced by Harold Dejan's Olympia Brass Band into the contemporary New Orleans brass band repertory, it has become a standard, recorded by the Treme Brass Band, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and many others.
"It Ain't My Fault" was the second single released from Silkk the Shocker's second album, Charge It 2 da Game. It was produced by Craig B. and featured a verse and chorus from label-mate, Mystikal. "It Ain't My Fault" was one of Silkk the Shocker's successful singles, making it to 18 on the Billboard Hot 100.
A remix entitled "It Ain't My Fault 2" later appeared on Silkk's third album, Made Man which gain even better success.
The chorus was re-interpreted in a charity song with the same name by Mos Def, Lenny Kravitz, Trombone Shorty, Tim Robbins, and the Preservation Hall Band to benefit Gulf Aid, a nonprofit created in response to the BP oil spill off the Louisiana Coast.
