The 50 Best Rap Songs by Women

47. Shawnna "Gettin' Some" (2006)

Album: Block Music

Shawnna made herself infamous as the girl that can "make ya toes pop" after her platinum-certified banger, "Gettin' Some" hit the charts. It's hard to believe, due to the song's success, but the original version was placed as a hidden track off of her second album, Block Music. With a sample from Too $hort's "Blowjob Betty," Shawnna's track is automatically a banger, but coupled with the chorus and her perfectly arrogant lyrics ("All the niggas in the hood wanna call her wifey/If you got a pretty dollar then I probably might be"), it becomes a classic.

She eventually went on to release a remix with 15 guest rappers on the track, showing how everyone at the time wanted to hop on the Xcel-produced beat. The video takes place in a hair salon and is completed with a DTP crew cameo towards the end, showing Shawnna's place in the crew, and the support of her chart-toppping hit. —Lauren Nostro
