SHAWNNA COULD OF HAD KANYE WEST GOLD DIGGER RECORD
"Gold Digger" became one of Yeezy's biggest hits to date, but would the Jamie Foxx-assisted "Late Registration" jam topped the Hot 100 if it had been recorded by Chicago rapstress Shawnna? After she passed on the beat, West rewrote the hook to accommodate a male perspective, and struck, er, gold. West originally created 'Gold Digger' for hip-hop hopeful Shawnna's solo debut, but she rejected it. West reworked the lyrics for himself and then took 'Gold' platinum. Meanwhile, the only precious metal Shawnna's been rocking lately is her tin ear.
