As you all know, every week we have our "Artist of The Week" special. This week’s artist is a talented singer named Shawna. We were introduced to Shawna by her biggest fan Jafar Taj who literally swamped our emails with information about Shawna and persuaded us to hear her beats.
Shawna an MC from Chicago and the daughter of blues guitarist Buddy Guy has been performing since 1996 when she opened for Junior M.A.F.I.A.. Shawnna then hooked up with Ludacris, who granted her a spot on his break-out single "What's Your Fantasy." Two years later, she finally released "Worth Tha Weight", her solo debut for Def Jam.
Shawnna a member of Ludacris' Disturbing Tha Peace clique, will release her sophomore album "Block Music" which will release on June 27. The album features appearances from Lil Wayne and Too Short and among others. Shawna is definately going to hit the scene with a big bang.
