Shawnna worth tha weight weight a minute

Worth tha Weight is the debut album by female rapper Shawnna. It was originally scheduled to be released in 2002, but was delayed until 2004. "Let's Go" was featured on the video game Def Jam: Fight for NY. The album's singles were "Shake Dat Shit" and "Weight a Minute". It also included "R.P.M" with Twista & Ludacris, along with several remixed tracks: "Posted" from DTP's Golden Grain album, "Block Reincarnated" from the 2 Fast 2 Furious soundtrack, and Beenie Man's "Dude". The album has sold 380,000 copies to date in the U.S.


Critical reception

Worth tha Weight received positive reviews from music critics. K.B. Tindal of HipHopDX gave high praise to Shawnna's display of technical delivery and knowledgeable vocabulary throughout her debut, saying that "At the end of the day Shawnna comes through with a great display for a freshman release on the solo end. Def Jam does it again but don't get it twisted, DTP is what's really poppin'." Steve 'Flash' Juon of RapReviews praised Shawnna and the production team for elevating the material with lyrical dexterity and energetic beats, saying that "At eighteen tracks and nearly 60 minutes long, you're not left with the impression Shawnna said anything really profound, but she did say it in an enjoyable way over an impressive selection of beats." Andy Kellman of AllMusic praised the album's production and Shawnna's skills as a rapper despite tracks like "Posted (Remix)" and "Kick This One" being weak contributions, concluding that "Even with these nagging flaws, Shawnna holds her own and is only complemented -- never outshined -- by the many guest MCs."
