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.
