The 50 Greatest Chicago Rap Songs

#24. Shawnna "Gettin' Some"

Year: 2006
Produced By: Xcel
Album: Block Music
Label: Disturbing Tha Peace/Def Jam

The daughter of blues legend Buddy Guy was anointed the first lady of Ludacris' Disturbing Tha Peace clique and released her debut, Worth Tha Weight, in 2004. After that project failed to set the world on fire, she had to come back strong and did just that with "Gettin' Some." Building the song around the infamous line from Too $hort's "Blowjob Betty," the ode to oral took the radio by storm (despite its raunchy content), cracking the top five on both the R&B and rap charts. The single later went on to sell a million copies, giving Shawnna her first platinum plaque as a solo artist.
