While Young Money may be without their captain, Shanell has been doing her part to hold down the fort by releasing a mixtape Shut Up and Listen, writing with The Girls Club, and recording her debut album.
Young Money’s singer-songwriter describes her recent visit to Rikers Island to visit Lil Wayne, their non-music discussions, and how he’s been passing his time. “He’s been reading and observing. It’s like watching TV in there for him. Wayne is a very, very smart individual and I think he’s watching,” Shanell told Rap-Up TV between sips of her apple martini. “He’s acted out each person that he’s come in contact with.”
