If you really think about it there aren't that many significant female rappers out there. It seems it might be harder for a new female MC to earn the love her male counterparts get. Face it; Hip-hop is picky about its female side. It's hard to find that complete package of skills, looks, charisma and of course, sincerity.
Meet Rashawnna Guy a.k.a. Shawnna, a seasoned hip-hop vixen who takes control of the mic with her sexy, aggressive rhymes. Her verses are laced with themes ranging from happiness to life's difficulties and everything in between. The 26-year-old Southside Chicago native is taking our rap world by storm as the first female artist from Ludacris' Disturbing Tha Peace (DTP) crew.
Although Shawnna is just releasing her first solo album on DTP/Def Jam, that doesn't mean she hasn't paid her dues. She's been in the rap game a minute now and has been spitting for over 10 years. But that's not a surprise, since music has always been in Shawnna's Chicagoan blood. Shawnna has always been as musical as her father, Buddy Guy, a 4x Grammy- winning blues guitar player. "I've always been into music. I wrote my first rhyme when I heard Ice Cube's "Back at the Beach," Shawnna tells of her beginnings. "I had already been turned on to "It Takes Two" and Salt & Pepa's "Push it", stuff like that. But when Ice Cube dropped "Back at the Beach," it was over. From there when I was in school, I was getting referrals because I'm not doing my work. I'm writing raps. We got ciphers and they was thinking that there's a fight and it ain't nothing but a rap battle."
Shawnna is going to be gettin some. This new single is bangin'. Her new album is hitting the stores this month. But, as for now we have this single. I remember her on a Ludacris track "Whats Your Fantasy". She is finally able to put out her own Album. Can't wait to see what she brings. Check it out!
