You may remember rising local R&B queen Shonie from an episode of Prunk TV here on Crossfade from last May. Since then, she's been working on material for her upcoming debut album, to be released on Slip N Slide and Def Jam, for now titled Passionate... Pieces of Me. Recently, she scored some YouTube heat with a female-perspective response to Jeremiih's "Birthday Sex,"
Capitalizing on the Internet traction, Shonie's released a new mixtape, What the Game's Been Missing. It's hosted by DJ 5053, a fellow Slip N Slide character, and includes remixes of tracks by The-Dream, Ludacris, Ne-Yo, Lloyd, etc. -- and of course Rick Ross, Flo Rida, Trick Daddy, and Trina.
