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 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
