(AllHipHop News) Many rap artists are arriving in Atlanta for the 2014 BET Hip Hop Awards that are being taped tonight. While the stars line-up for the red carpet, veteran rapper Shawnna was apparently denied access to walk the media line and participate in the show's program.
A source in Shawnna's camp tells AllHipHop.com the former Disturbing Tha Peace Records performer was blocked from the event by Chaka Zulu, the BET Hip Hop Awards show executive producer. Zulu is also co-founder of DTP along with his brother Jeff Dixon and emcee/actor Ludacris. The source also claims Shawnna was replaced by Lil Mama in one of the annual cyphers.
Shawnna scored a number one hit in 2003 as a guest on "Stand Up" with Luda. She released two solo studio albums - Worth Tha Weight and Block Music.
