HipHopWired Exclusive: T-Pain Speaks On Shawnna/Nicki Minaj Comparisons

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Hip Hop Wired, New Music, News

T-Pain recently addressed folks talkin’ that ish about Nappy Boy rapper Shawna, previously of DTP, swagger jacking Nicki Minaj’s flow. Pop the hood for details.

Former DTP princess and Nappy Boy artist Shawnna is coming under heavy criticism these days.

Since appearing on the Nappy Boy All Stars Vol. 1 Mixtape, which is due to be released on March 7th, the Chi-town bred MC has been accused of “jacking” the rhyme style of Young money princess, Nicki Minaj.

T-Pain, who is heavily criticized for his use of auto-tune, addressed the controversy in an interview stating,

“Shawnna’s flow has not changed; she has been rapping like this for the past 8 years.”

Although the female MC has without a doubt had the sped up type of style made famous by her male counter-part Twista, it’s the more feminine pitch and animated style that seems to throw fans for a loop.

Speaking of T-Pain, the Konvict artist and Nappy Boy CEO is not only signing artists and singing on hooks, the Floridian has also teamed up with Cartoon Network to pay homage to the biggest African American Spring Break tradition in history, Freak Nik.

    I can’t imagine Shawnna jacking anything from anybody! She’s one of the best!

    Shawnna is a Chicago rapper, period. Not like Common and Kayne but a rapper who raps like Chicago people rap. How in the h*ll can she jack Nikki Minaj for anything when she imports every bit of her swag from China (plastic hair, booty, breasts)…. GTFOH!

  • Black Sheep

    how is Shawnna jacking that clown when that clown jacks Lil’ Kim? at least Shawnna actually has a hit of her own, and not 1 million ‘guest appearances’ on other people’s hits.

    Shawnna is THE MOST slept on mc period! She makes Trina, and Nicky look like shi* on a stick. Still got the Shawnaa in the cd player for life. Her flow is soooo midwest… but if you love good hip hop she is a must have! Stand up Chi-town $ C-town. Stop sleeping on the midwest.

  • T

    Shawnna is the last of a dieing breed. She can flow, write, sing, and above all, knows Hip Hop. She modeled herself after the greatest MALE emcees. She built herself to compete with MALES on the mic, not plastic wannabes. Nikki is cool but she’s a cartoon, very laughable, not an emcee.

  • ladyinblue
