Feature Friday #247: David Banner – Shawty Say (Feat Lil Wayne)

David Banner Shawty Say Feat Lil Wayne

I have picked a single from David Banner titled “Shawty Say” featuring a sampled-chorus from Lil Wayne‘s “Lollipop” for this week’s “Feature Friday” installment.

This song, which was produced by Banner himself, appears on his fifth studio album that was released in 2008, The Greatest Story Ever Told.

“Shawty say the n*gga that she with ain’t sh*t; Shawty say the n*gga that she with ain’t sh*t; And he can’t do this, and he don’t do that; And he can’t do this, and he don’t do that”

You can watch the “Shawty Say” music video below.

Lil Wayne Releases An Old But Unheard Single Called “Ya Dig”

Lil Wayne Releases An Old But Unheard Single Called Ya Dig

We first heard about “Ya Dig” a couple of weeks ago when it was supposed to drop on September 24th, however, it was then postponed until today to not hinder the release of Lil Wayne and Rich The Kid’s Trust Fund Babies joint album.

There are not too many other details about this Weezy single, especially the question as to why something that was recorded in either late 2007 or early 2008 has been released (not that any of us will be complaining as it is extremely dope).

You can stream “Ya Dig” that was co-produced by STREETRUNNER and Tarik Azzouz below. The record samples the same song as what Tunechi‘s “Gossip” track does – Margie Joseph’s “Stop, In The Name Of Love“. Why do you think this Tune single has now been released?
