Shanell Discusses Upcoming Projects, Young Money, Lil Wayne & More In An Exclusive Interview

YoungMoneyHQ.com got the chance to interview Shanell and ask her plenty of questions about what made her want to have a career in music, her forthcoming debut studio album, having Lil Wayne as a boss, and hoping to do a solo European tour soon.

SnL revealed in our interview that she would love to work with Pharrell, she has the closest relationships with Lil Twist and Mack Maine out of Young Money, what her three favorite songs are which she wrote, getting advice from Wayne, Birdman and Slim, and what she would be doing if she was not in the music industry.

The YM Princess even spoke on Young Mula’s latest compilation titled Rise Of An Empire, Lil Chuckee leaving the record label, Tyga wanting to get off it, the current roster, her thoughts on how the label has changed over the years from when it first started, and shooting a music video for “Hittin’ Like” with her label-mates.

Before we wrapped up the interview, SnL mentioned what her recording sessions are like, who her top five favorite music artists are, how her “So Good” single featuring Wayne and Drake came about, her own accessories that you can buy from Gypsy’s Closet, and her upcoming collaboration project with producer Zaytoven.

You can check out the full 20-minute interview between us and the Gypsy below. I just want to say a big thank you to Shanell and Ashley for giving YoungMoneyHQ this opportunity for an interview. Enjoy!
