Currently working on her own album but be on the look out for “Wicked Love” which is a rocking hit. Little birdie also said a video is coming for this new single… Trap with us! (wink) #StackorStarve

Why is #DTP disturbing @ShawnnaMusic’s peace?

What happened at the BET Hip Hop Awards?

It’s crazy. We put a lot of money and effort into getting down to Atlanta for BET Hip Hop Awards weekend, so we could promote my new single “Gettin’ To It.” It’s getting a lot of buzz here at home in Chicago, but it takes more than that to break a record. So we were all set up, ready to go down there, mingle with DJs, and get a good look on the red carpet.

I actually didn’t even know they were considering me for the cypher. We were right outside of Atlanta, and they contacted my manager and said, “We might have another slot in the cypher, and we’re considering Shawnna.” So we hit the metal a little harder [laughs].

When we get there, my manager says, “Shawnna I need to talk to you. Our PR person just got word from BET that you have been denied access to the red carpet and the BET Hip Hop Awards.” At that moment, my whole world stopped. It had been a minute since I had been this excited about getting back on the scene and letting everybody know I’m ready. I was embarrassed, hurt, angry, all in one. That was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

A lot of people have been asking me the past four years, “What’s up with you and DTP? What happened?” It just brought back old emotions of the same type of stuff I was dealing with when I was with this label. I said, “I’m fed up. I’m not taking this anymore.” It’s been four years. I’ve been nothing but cordial about the situation. I never bad mouthed this company. I never said a bad thing about Ludacris.

I just wished them all the best. Knowing that I knew other things could be said to ruffle the feathers, to play the dirty side. This is in no way a ploy to promote a mixtape, cause I don’t even have a mixtape right now. All I was trying to do was get down there and make a little noise with my single, network, communicate with people. They just tried to put a stop on everything. But God is good. We kept grinding. We kept doing our thing.

All-in-all it didn’t turn out to be a bad situation. But the things we had planned to do never happened, because of some situation with Disturbing Tha Peace not wanting me to be involved in it.

What was BET’s reason that they gave on why you weren’t allowed to participate?

BET was just saying that they had gone into a partnership with Disturbing Tha Peace. They came together to present the festivities. This, in my opinion, is what gave [DTP] the authority to do so. No shade to BET. BET has always shown me mad, mad love, so I know this had nothing to do with them. That’s the other reason I’m so upset. I know exactly where it came from.

In any interview you’ve seen or heard me in, I’ve never said anything bad about [DTP]. After four years of being silent and turning the other cheek – to still try to take this slap from them. I’m not taking it laying down in no way. To me it’s saying they still want to go to war with me. They got a problem. If you got a problem with me, okay we can address it. We can get it out there. What you wanna do? You can’t keep going in my pocket.

Are you still contractually tied to them?

No, I’m not. I have not been signed to Disturbing Tha Peace for four years. I have no connection to them. I haven’t even spoken to Luda since before we even got to the split. I haven’t spoken to Luda since we were in the studio working on [the intended Shawnna-Ludacris collaborative album] Battle Of The Sexes.

I don’t understand why after four years, y’all still wanna take this shot at me. I have no idea what their next move could be, because I had no idea they’d make this move. I honestly thought they were on the same page as me – we’re going to let what happened between us, be between us. Let’s move forward on our own paths amicably. Obviously, I was wrong.

Do I just take this and walk away with it? Or I do let it be known I’m not going to take this. I rep my city. So if I take an “L”, my city takes an “L”. I can’t do that. I love them too much, and they love me too much.

Females in the industry cannot afford to take “Ls” like that. If I win, females win. If I lose, females lose. That’s how I look at it. So even if I wanted to say, “Ah man, whatever. I’m gonna just walk away.” It’s not just doing that for me. We already got so much against us.


I know you’re in the studio right now putting in work.

Yeah, I need to be heard. I need for this to be known. People think I’m dead, gone, buried alive. People think I just walked away, I’m done. No, I’m out here working. It’s just so many situations with people trying to have their foot on my neck.

For so long I was always playing the nice guy. Saying, “Things happen for a reason. It’s gonna get greater later.” F**k that s**t! I’m done with that. I’m done playing the nice guy. If that’s what I gotta do, then that’s what I gotta do. You wanna go to war with me,  I’m war ready. Point, blank, period. You wanna leave me alone, then leave me alone. You wanna go at it with me, let’s go.

#NewMusic – Dreezy ft. Common & Ross Augusta “No Good”

dreezy common

Common heard the “Chiraq” from our girl Dreezy and invited her to come on the radio with him… the outcome is a record titled, “No Good”. Check it out and make sure you follow her now on Twitter. #FemaleFlowApproved

Verse 1:

A heartbeat’s the perfect harmony
And pardon me but you became a part of me
Replace blood for your love in my arteries
Kind of drug they don’t sell up in the pharmacy
I told him I’m in pieces, he told me he took pottery
Scratchin’ exes off to win the lottery
You not on the TV but you a star to me
Cause you be scripted like a movie and it’s starring me
But still I rap for him til I gas out
Even though we been around like he got passed out
He like the thots on the block with they ass out
But like him find me with a nigga, he gon’ lash out
Got a soft [?] but grew up in the hood
Scared of commitment, rollin’ on the wood
Might just be bad but he make it feel good
Addicted I wouldn’t leave him if I could

#NewVideo – @ItsKayeFox “Used to Love You” featuring YP

kaye-fox-stair

The first single from the EP “Hear I Am” by Kaye Fox was directed by @leondotcom for @mudwingmedia which shows a relationship that has reached its boiling point due to deception. We have all been there right? Kaye Fox, born in South Carolina moved to the Westside of Chicago as a young child. Like most she found her voice in church choir but didn’t stop there. Linking up with Grammy Award winning producer NO ID and together they built an incredible catalogue of music that made her a sought after commodity not only in Chicago, but all throughout the music industry. As a part of No ID’s production team, Kaye Fox has gained vocal credits on some of the last few year’s top albums from artists such as Kanye West, Rick Ross, Nas, Richard Ashcroft (The Verve), Big Sean, J Cole, & Common. Look out for her new EP titled “Hear I Am”, which is set to be released in April. The project is a masterful combination of R&B/Soul and Gospel influenced vocals, organic musicianship, and hard beats that promise energetic performances with her live band. Kaye’s songs are authentic, personal expressions.   Follow her on Twitter!  ~ Missy B

[New Video] “Schizophrenia” by @DreezyDreezy

I heard her before but the track “Schizophrenia” pulled me in immediately!
Dreezy, out of Chicago, pours her emotions out on this song produced by D. Brooks.
She recently dropped the video for it directed by @WhoIsHiDef.  Her mixtape Schizo is doing some numbers & I highly suggest you give her a few minutes of your time!


“I’m lost, I need directions, been running from the truth I’m out of breath I need a second, But I just smile like nothing wrong because until I find myself, I’m just a perfect song.”
~Dreezy

#WORLDPREMIER of @IamTiaLondon “Live it Up” VIDEO produced by @Traxster

“I just want to stay high for all the times we been low. I just wanna live my life, I just wanna live it right. Live it up! So put your hands up high, we gonna live it up tonight. Live it Up, Live it Up” ~ Tia London

Tia London is dope. We really could end it there but that just wouldn’t do you or her justice. Female Flow is here to tell you about the amazing, talented women who are currently following their dreams and passion for music. Tia London was introduced to us by our fellow friend, the Legendary Traxster and we instantly fell in love with her.
We introduced you to Tia London last year when she dropped “The Overdose” in November, a collaboration with the undeniably talented super producer Traxstar. The project made a couple people sit up in their chairs and had no choice but to respect the musicality and realness of it from Track 1 to the high energy “Drunk”.  You can literally play it from front to back which is very rare today. She relates to us ladies, she doesn’t try to over-stunt, she sings, she raps and she is just real about it. With this new video “Live it Up” is an upbeat and somewhat of a motivational anthem for those going through something. Definitely something to turn up and bang in the speakers. #FEMALEFLOWAPPROVED
