Here’s an assignment for all you Booth-heads: name your five favorite female rappers. Chances are, nine out of 10 lists will include Shawnna. As one of the few femcees known to match (or exceed) her male collaborators’ skills on the mic, it’s undeniable that this Shorty Got Work. On this new street single, Shawnna works her wiles on two fellow Windy City natives. Twista‘s high-RPM verse, singer Teddie Cain Jr.‘s smooth R&B hook, and B-Crucial‘s boardwork, complete with his trademark 312 hi-hat, add up to a cut with potential to become Chi-town’s late spring/early summer anthem! If you liked the Work Shawnna put in on this record, you’ll be happy to hear that she’s got big plans for the remainder of ‘09; she and Luda plan to drop their Battle of the Sexes album this summer, and fans can look forward to her third solo LP later this year.
First DJ Booth Appearance:
