Product Description

Hailing from Chicago, Shawnna, is the first female artist signed to Ludacris' Disturbing Tha Peace Records. A former member of the hip-hop duo Infamous Syndicate, Shawnna, daughter of legendary Blues guitarist, Buddy Guy, is known for her rapid fire delivery. Her debut album Worth Tha Weight was well received by critics, and spawned the hit single "Shake That Sh**." Shawnna is back on the scene with Block Music, scheduled for release June 27, 2006, which is propelled by the anthematic 'Gettin' Some,' which has been climbing the urban Billboard charts steadily. This new album Block Music features guest appearances from Ludacris, Too Short, Lil Wayne and the Disturbing Tha Peace Family including: Bobby V-Tino, Smoke of Field Mob and I-20.

Shawnna, daughter of the inimitable blues legend Buddy Guy, is meant to be huge; base that on tracks like "Damn"--as fine an ode to bootyliciousness as listeners far removed from the block will ever trip across--and the puff-chested, big-banging title track. But early boosts from BET aside (the kind that may be inevitable when DTP, Pharrell, Ludacris, Lil Wayne, Too Short, 8 Ball, Bobby Valentino, and world-class daddy Guy line up as insurance against a sophomore slump) Shawnna still feels like a best-kept secret--a hard-nosed, downhome chip off her old block. Late-disc surprises such as "Can't Break Me" and "In the Chi" trade in the grit for go-deep truth-telling, and they're bolstered by production that feels snap-tight in some places and billowy in others. Fourteen tracks in, the effect is somehow intimate, as if only block-centric types should be allowed a listen, but through skill alone, Shawnna's made room on the stoop for the whole world. --Tammy La Gorce

Shawnna is back and better then ever.It's rare to find a RAPPER with lyrical talent and good looks.Then there's Shawnna a Chi-Town repesentative that's holdin it down for the females as well as the niggas. This album is by far better than worth the weight with beats,lyrics,versatality,controversy and depth plus she can freestyle AND SHE WRITES HER OWN LYRICS(shout out to FOXY CLOWN).Here's the lowdown on the whole album.

1.Can't Do It Like Me-One hell of an intro this displays Shawnna's rapid delivery flow telling the whole game she's a force to be wreckoned with and not to be slept on.

2.Block Music-The album title track which features DTP vet 1-20 and Shawnna spittin jagged and rough to a bass knockin beat. Presenting themselves as hustlers on the block and controlling the streets and also making it hard for other emcees to breathe.

3.Damn-A fun club anthem about shawnna spittin about her big behind,with catchy lyrics and a dominating flow she makes talking about sex sounds so good. And also smoke from field mob is on here with his sharp witty flow it's no secret that this album cut is a stand out track for block music.

4.Gettin' Some Remix-feat.Ludacris,Pharrell,Lil Wayne and Too Short this is a great follow up to the smash hit Gettin' some.It is also very suprising to me that Pharrell has the best verse in this song(maybe he's one to look out for too in the future).

5.Candy Coated-THE BEST TRACK ON THIS PHENOMENAL ALBUM.Candy Coated features down south living legends 8 Ball and MJG on this soon to be major hit record.They rap alongside shawnna rippin the beat alive util it beats no more, this is the first for a female rapper to devote an entire song about cars and it works.

I decided to buy this CD because I heard some of her as a guest on other male rappers' albums. But, after listening to this CD, I found that Shawnna actually is a pretty good rapper herself. She has a good flow and her beats are pretty darn catchy. Some of her tracks sound as if Dr. Dre influenced it, and a few others are quite apparent that the crunk sounds had impact. She also has a nice mix of guests on her various tracks, but not too much to the point where you start feeling as if the CD wasn't her own. It's nice to have a CD from a female rapper without feeling like you lose any street cred or hard-core image. Although Shawnna is far from the old shcool likes of Salt 'N Pepa and other popular female rap stars, she displays quite a knack for rapping and finding catchy beats on this album.

Bought this album years back when I saw it in a store. Fell in love with pretty much the whole album especially due to the good memories it holds for me during that time I was listening to it. Shawnna's style was so different for me since I was so tired to hearing what was coming out on the radio in the South. Everything seemed the same at that time and I was in need of something uniquely different and this album was one I felt that was worth getting. Hoping to add it to my digital collection soon.

BLOCK MUSIC! This album is hot, her last effort was pretty good too but this album certainly shows many signs of maturity. One of the best points of this CD is that there's a good mix of club bangers, hood anthems and slow joints. The best club bangers include Damn, Can't Do It Like Me and Candy Coated. Hood anthems include Block Music and Ghetto Fairytales. I'm pretty surprised that she can pull off so many slow songs, but Roll Wit Me and Take It Slow definitely stand out.

Top 5 Tracks:

1. Block Music (Bang) - Gritty beat with hot lyrics featuring I-20.

2.Can't Do It Like Me - Rapid fire lyrics over a hot beat, great way to kick off the album.

3.Damn - Fantastic horns, great verse by Smoke and showing that she even talks dirty well.

4.Candy Coated - Shawnna has the best first, but Dirty South rappers 8Ball & MJG are damn good in this too.

5.Lil Daddy What's Good - grimey beat with great lyrics, also great to hear her handle a hot song by herself.

This is a good CD. Tight beats and good lyrics. But, sometimes, the beats in the songs overshadows Shawnna's raps and also the other rappers featured in some of the songs "steal" the song away from her or the song ends up being "too much" including them. She has skill and she has talent, don't get me wrong but, a lot of the songs on this CD tend to blend together due to the fact that the majority of the songs on here sound a lot alike. A lot of the same bassy beats and background shouts.

Standout out tracks:

"Gettin' Some" (Remix)

"Damn"

"Block Music (Bang)"

If you are already a fan of Shawnna, I think you will be satisfied with this CD. If you don't know much of her previous material, I would just stick to to songs that she is featured in.

"Gettin' Some" had to be one of the most explicit songs to garner radio play in recent years; it was also backed by one of the most infectious beats I've ever heard. While minimalistic, the draw of "Gettin' Some" cannot be ignored; it's repetitiveness is actually a positive in this situation. While the production on the track may not be the most complex, or multi-fauceted you'll listen to, you can't deny how catchy it is. While the original was definitely a selling point for this album, the best track found within is the remix to the original - featuring guest spots from Ludacris, Too Short, Pharrell, and Lil' Wayne, all of whom drop exceptionally tight verses.

Those two tracks are the strongest found on the LP, but that by no means insinuates that the rest of this album is cannon-fodder. While most associate Shawnna with the South because of her (former) affiliate with Disturbing Tha Peace, she's actually from the Chi-Town, and her Mid-West influences shine through brightly on this release. Both of her tracks dedicated to her home town of Chicago are soulful numbers, something commonly associate with the Chi. In tha Chi is an exceptional track featuring well-known 'Ye collaborator, Syleena Johnson, while Chicago is a dope track featuring Shawnna's father, as well as Malik Yuself.

Other tracks are sure to get the clubs bumping, such as Can't Do It Like Me, the title-track, and Damn featuring Field Mob member Smoke. All of those tracks have dope production, supplied with some pretty hot rhymes from Shawnna. Unfortunately, not every track is as tight as the aforementioned tracks; negatives come in the former of the dissapointing DTP posse cut, featuring Luda and Bobby Valentino, Take It Slow.
