Rashawnna Guy released her debut album Worth tha Weight under the moniker Shawnna in September 2004, after the project lingered on a shelf in the Def Jam office for years. Signed to the legendary record label through a partnership with Ludacris' Disturbing Tha Peace Records, Shawnna left the label shortly after the album's release due to dissatisfaction. By 2007, Shawnna had inked a new deal with T-Pain's Nappy Boy Entertainment. She is currently working on her third studio album, set for release in 2012.
