Video: DTP’s Shawnna Upstages Luda at The Highline Ballroom

[EDITED: Nov. 26, 2008 3:42 PM to correct spelling of Shawnna’s name (again)]

This video might not be work safe.

We interrupt our pre-Thanksgiving Day posts to bring you this important post for the fellas:

Remember when Ludacris dumped all of his artists awhile back? Well, he kept Shawnna, the First Lady of DTP — and we can see why.

Shawnna and her ample assets upstaged and rang rings around her boss Luda during his gig at the Highline Ballroom in NYC last night. Brown Sugar got it going on! Check out the seductive action at the 5:31 mark.

Peep more clips from Luda’s show featuring T-Pain at the Highline Ballroom courtesy of loyal reader Jeorgina! I agree with Jeorgina, T-Pain should never try to sing without his vocoder.

    teecee says:

    the only reason why he kept her is cause she was doin him…. and she aint cute. … hint if u shaking yo ass is should shake and home boy throwing her money on the stage was sad….
    i rather see video vixen Vanessa Wilson…claude ham murcey… vanessawilson com has her pic. t pain was using his recorder he just cant sing.

    iscream says:

    Did you call her Brown Suga?

    I hope she does come back (minus the kool aid hair) we need a female rapper to rep & not Trina (even though I love her first album)

  14. 14
    bloggergirlz says:

    @teecee: he didn’t “keep” her as you put it so eloquently…she actually has talent and has been on the scene for a long time…

    some of yall (well @ least hermosa), might remember her from being in the group “infamous syndicate”…regardless of how she looks, she has skills and like hermosa said a nice body (boobs ain’t that big though lol)…i seen her about a month or so ago at this club called transit…and she loves hella thuggish guys…if he and luda smashed they must’ve had some down time that day…

    on the flipside, sandra is def feeling her ;)

    teecee says:

    @blogger girl,
    she said they werent in a relationship, they was just sleeping together back when she had her cd out. the radio personalities killed her career after she said that because they made comments about being luda’s booty call.

    Hermosa says:

    Bye Keely, stuff your belly!

    purepisces says:

    LOL @ blogger

    She did a guest spot on Luda’s Gangsta Grillz mixtape, saying people keep asking if she’s back with DTP…but then she never answers the question!!! Then on Theatre of the Mind (hot CD by the way) it says that Luda and Shawnna have a CD coming soon called Battle of the Sexes.

    I hope they do it!!

    And I just can’t see Luda gettin with Shawnna…she’s just too hood and nasty…and not cute…BUT who knows…

  21. 21
    bloggergirlz says:

    @teecee: oh my…i obviously missed the memo lol…i know a few people she f’ed w/ (rappers, reg folk, etc.), but i won’t put her business out there…

    actually she killed her own career making a move like that…she has struggled throughout her career, but she had a bonified hit w/ “getting some head” or whatever the title was (i can hear the music in my head)…that’s still a jam…another thing, she started letting “hustle period” (aka as kanye’s ex-mgmt) manage her…i’m still trying to figure out if that benefitted her in any way…i doubt it though…

    purepisces says:

    @ blogger

    Still wondering why she would leave DTP when she was riding a hit like that. Everybody here in the A was like…WTH??

    Oh, and for my ATL folk if you ain’t heard, I heard that V103 midday personality Porsche Foxx got let go today…no word on the replacement yet…

    @pure: damn, that’ll be cool…maybe that’ll give her the boost she needs…at one point her, remy and another female rapper (my mind is drawing a blank), were going to create a group…that fell through though…even if she’s not w/ dtp they’ll still get paid off of anything she releases…i like that title and i hope it comes out…there are some tired a$$ female rappers out here…i couldn’t see her and luda doing the ‘it” either…she is VERY hood…like i said b4 it most of been a day (or days) lmao…

    I alwasy liked Shawnna, and I wondered what happened to her. She put it down on the ‘P-Poppin’ song. You guys know she’s got 3 kids and one is special needs. I can’t see the video, but I’ve never known her as a brick house – she was always a BONY TONI…

    @caramel: i heard some of nicki’s songs…she ain’t really on no one’s radar though…being from NY is probably a blessing and a curse because of foxy and kim…her people tried to get her a gig in chgo, but didn’t NO ONE know who the f’ck she was…she needs some radio hits (if that’s possible for her)…

    Dag word gets around. I heard that this morning, but I didn’t post out of respect to Porsche. We spoke this morning and she said she wasn’t going anywhere. She may have meant she wasn’t leaving Altanta. Oh well, since the word is already out…

    while we on this hair

    It’s been a minute since I’ve seen a dude with one of those…texturizer…that’s what I do to my hair…use a regular perm though, not one of those kits…

  51. 51
    DivineBrown says:

    pisces…a perm is so necessary!

    A kit…that is not!

  52. 52
    purepisces says:

    LOL @ Divine

    I guess those kits will do the job if you have super short hair. Anything past an inch will be too much.

    ^^^^^ (#33)DANG Sandy!! You paint quite the picture lol!
    I’ve always like Shawna as well, she has MAD skills, and everytime I see her live, she KILLS it! She just ain’t consistent though unfortunately. But an album with her and Luda is def a good look.
    And I don’t know much about Luda, but it LOOKS like they had something…the way he always be lookin at her! lol

    purepisces says:

    @Elove

    She looks wicked too. LOL!! Unfortunately, in this business, that’s probably one of the main things holding her back.

    We do need some women to step up though…all we got is Trina…nobody else is releasing anything…Eve is supposed to be in the studio….but…

    dcwife1622 says:

    Funny you posted this. My nephew recorded a song with Shawnna and her brother Big Jeff last month called This Ain’t What You Want. She’s trying to get her career revived. She has her own label called Money Over Everything. Hopefully after this concert she can get some shine….. (**** and maybe my nephew can get on, because he’s been trying to blow up since he was 14).She’s been through a lot. I don’t know her personally but I think she has a better flow than most of the female rappers. Maybe I’m biased because she’s from the Chi. I have her video Shake Dat Sh1t on my Iphone.

  64. 64
    CaramelDrop says:

    sorry lisa – Nicki would eat her up and spit her and that “jangalang” out

    Hey DivaBrown – How are you

    @ icescream – nah, she’s underground and supposedly signed to Lil Waynes label.

    @ bloggergirlz – I doubt if she gets radio play due to the content of her music…to compare her to kim is bout right she’s got that raunch raw thing going like kim but the b!tches flo is impecable.

    Nicki Minaj is slowly but surely creepin to the scene…the bootleg man is always out of her mixtapes…once the rats of the world get a hold of her “I can cook crack and a mean beef stew” steez she’s going to blow up (lol)

    OMG!! V-103 let Porsche Fox go? I wonder if they will now give Ryan the midday spot. Ryan really need to be on the Morning show with Wanda Smith and Ms. Siphia. I love when he fills in for Frank. Ryan is the best DJ in my opinion. Frank is cool sometimes.

    god he’s a horrible rapper. can someone reissue the memo to ludacris that YELLING ON THE MIC aint rapping? geesh.

    he does that on every song. and elle on v103 tried to give him props for his great acting and rapping? bytch, wtf??? needless to say i switched stations immediately.

    he was horrible in crash, sucked in hustle and flow, and that race car movie is so forgettable, i can’t remember the name of it….but i’m sure he was consistent with his acting in this one too.

    Well damn, she sure was wearing the hell out of that dress. She turned me on and I ain’t even gay. And to think white folks think a booty like that is fat and disgusting. I like her flow too. I look forward to her project with Luda.

    2thick4u says:

    Love me some Shawnna.

    Glad that Luda put her back on the label. She is a hot emcee!!!

    She is a beast in that dress.

    Can’t wait to hear her rip Luda ass on the mic. They make a nice duo!!!

  74. 74
    Hottie76 says:

    He Luda does not give a dam about LSLH Gabrielle Union is far from LSLH hair. His baby mother does not have long hair maybe a long weave!!!!Shawnna was the best thing that happened to DTP they did not promote her properly and that is one of the main reasons she left. I do not think she is back with them i just think her and Luda will do the sexes of the battle cd…That chick he has signed now LeeLee she needs start all over again!!!!
