DTP Says Ludacris/Shawnna LP Still in the Works, Despite MC’s T-Pain Connection

Yesterday (September 21) a new track by T-Pain and Shawnna hit the net, with Pain introducing her as the newest member of his Nappy Boy roster.

On the track, “Dope,” which finds Pain returning to his rapping roots, Shawnna proudly starts her verse off by spitting: “It ain’t no secret that lyrically I’m the reason Nappy Boy had to put me on their team.”

When contacted by XXLMag.com to find out if she was officially signed to the label, Nappy Boy records said “no comment.”

Surprisingly the T-Pain collabo comes after news that Shawnna is working on an album with longtime associate Ludacris entitled Battle of the Sexes. XXL contacted Luda’s DTP records to see if the album is still in the works. Label rep AJ Dixon said it is still a priority at the label, but as of press time there is no release date.

Shawnna started off as a member of the female rap duo Infamous Syndicate. They released their debut Changing the Game in ’99 on Relativity. After the label folded ‘Cris drafted her for his Disturbing tha Peace crew and Def Jam inprint, where she released solo two albums, 2004’s Worth tha Wait and 2006’s Block Music. –Elan Mancini

    Because if you had even half a brain you’d realize that “breed” is supposed to be bread and “won’t” is either want or it’s supposed to be won’t.

    Do nigga even use the word “lyrically” in their rhymes nowadays? Poor Shawnna, she should’ve been “released” a sex tape, hit a bitch in the head with a bottle or shot one of her homegirls in the stomach by now if she wanted to stay relevant.

    She should let Wayne hit it raw. That niggas making broads famous right now.

          (Bitch)Nigga, Please.

          I’m supossed to believe you’ll inflict some type of bodily harm to me? You dummy, the english language is whipping your ass all by itself. No need for me to throw any punches. Wish I could interest you in a dictionary or a thesaurus, though.

          All these cats had something to say about your dysfunctional use of grammar, yet you’re enamored with me. Seems a bit homosexual. Too much beer has you misplacing your repressed sexual desires again. Damn, big words, I keep forgetting how unintelligent you are.
          “Ugly Bob Doll”…..do you mean Bob Dole? Do people even talk about him nowadays? Let me guess; your television isn’t handicapped accessible & you’ve been watching senate debate reruns on CSPAN for the last 8 years.

          “Shitting aprons”……I’m sure there’s need for a “no homo” there. But, only heterosexual men say that, so you right on task.

          Btw, G-R-A-N-D-S is how you spell it. The same way I spell it, & have been since I’ve been on this site, fucking bag of stupidity ass dude.

      Don’t hurt yourself trying to decipher what shorty’s saying. We won’t.

    It’s a trip cuz Shawnna is actually good. I remember the song she did with Twista on a DTP compilation, and she was keeping up with him. Sometimes people can be truly talented and still be successful. Unfortunately, most of the time, you have to have a gimmick.
