Those who went looking for Shawnna on Luda‘s recently-released Battle of the Sexes LP were destined for disappointment; as it turns out, the former Disturbing the Peace signee’s sneaked off to join T-Pain & co. on the Auto-Tune maven’s own Nappy Boy Entertainment. Appropriately, the Chi-town native is making her return to our pages with a potential single entitled Hide and Seek, which finds her getting to know a few of her new labelmates over an R&B-informed, synth-laden beat by Bishop Jones. While the hook gets a quintuple-dose of soul from Windy City four-piece One Chance and What It Is trio Sophia Fresh, it’s the headliner who steals the show, lacing the track with her signature combo of lyrical freakiness and unpredictable flows. So, Booth readers, is this track a promising beginning to the latest chapter in the femcee’s career? If you like what you’re hearing, you can find plenty more from Shawnna and the rest of the Nappy Boy roster on the new T-Pain Presents: Nappy Boy All Stars Vol. 1 compilation mixtape, available now online.
