Worth tha Weight [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
Released just before fellow Disturbing tha Peace member I-20's Self Explanatory, Worth tha Weight is Shawnna's own chance to step out as a solo artist. When she says "weight," meaning "wait," she's not kidding -- even by rap standards. The album comes four years after her breakthrough guest spot on Ludacris' "What's Your Fantasy." To anyone who has heard any number of her verses, it will come as no surprise that the Chicago-based MC believe it or not, the daughter of blues guitarist Buddy Guy is consistently thuggish and sexed-up. A series of strong productions come from heavies Timbaland the particularly hot Wild West-shootout "Shake Dat Shit", Jermaine Dupri, Just Blaze,...

To anyone who has heard any number of her verses, it will come as no surprise that the Chicago-based MC believe it or not, the daughter of blues guitarist Buddy Guy is consistently thuggish and sexed-up. A series of strong productions come from heavies Timbaland the particularly hot Wild West-shootout "Shake Dat Shit", Jermaine Dupri, Just Blaze, and Trackboyz, but nothing tops the Shondrae-produced "R.P.M.," somewhat distressingly reprised from the Disturbing tha Peace album. Even though the best track on it is two years old, the album -- for the most part -- remains true to its title. On the down side, the remix of "Posted" featuring N.O.R.E. is yet another "Superthug" knock-off, and the MC Lyte-sampling throwback "Kick This One" apparently the sister of I-20's like-minded, Run-D.M.C.-sampling "Point 'Em Out" does not come close to improving on the source material. Even with these nagging flaws, Shawnna holds her own and is only complemented -- never outshined -- by the many guest MCs.

    Competition

    I got into this argument with a co-worker because she likes to call people out of their name jokingly and I pretty much cut her off! Then I pop in this cd, and Shawnna is calling herself out of her name through the WHOLE cd. It's bad enough when guys do it and even worse when women do it. But other than that, this cd is REALLY OFF THE CHAIN! All of her beats were sick. Every last one of her songs is a club banger (or a grinder for the slow songs at the end). Her lyrical content can sometimes get cliche, but it's very little. The rest of it was really clever. I love the fact that she's trying to gain respect, show her craft, and put some thought into that--I haven't seen a female rapper this good since the MC Lyte/Queen Latifah/Salt n' Peppa days. The rest of these female rappers are too busy trying to show their booty and I haven't seen an ounce of brain power yet! Gone 'head girl!
