If Lil Wayne is the engine, and Drake, Nicki Minaj, Lil Twist and Chuckee are the tires, then Ms. Shanell might be the steering wheel that keeps the Young Money Maybach on the road to success.
Over the years, we’ve seen Shanell at concerts and in videos, but little did we know the singer/songwriter/dancer has been around from the beginning and helps keep Young Money’s momentum strong.
She is preparing to show the world why the hottest rapper in the game was instantly smitten with her skills. “My first single is called ‘My Buttons,’” Shanell said, “and the response from my (fan) crew, the lil’ gypsies, has been ridiculous. It’s a great song … and a small sign of what’s to come."
Hear “My Buttons” below and get more on Shanell in the August 2011 issue of Sister 2 Sister.
