Feeling a bit camera shy


"I just wanna be me..." says Shayvonna, one of many gifted artists to come out of
the Black Label camp. Born Shayvonna Jones on January 10, she has been an
avid fan of hip-hop since she heard it. Learning the words to "The Message" by
age 4, this was surely to become her destiny. By age 9, she began writing
rhymes and rapping over beats by LL Cool J, Salt-N-Pepa, Mc Lyte and Slick
Rick just to name a few. She began entering talent shows at schools and
recreation centers in her area never placing below second. Fast foward to 2003
where she began recording with Walter "Walt Dolla" Russell at his Black Label
Studio in Detroit. Walt took Shayvonna under his wing and decided to let her
become one of the representatives of his up and coming label. They began
recording tracks in the summer of 2004 for her debut, "Take Me As I Am" featuring
her labelmates, CX, Matt White and R-Son of Da Odd Couple and J-UG. She plans to
open up heads and let them know that hip-hop never left, it just wasn't heard from her
side. With that said, let her do her.
