CD Single

"Dunn Dunn" produced by Born Immaculate and DJ Pooh is the second single from Shawty Lo's debut solo album, Units in the City. Part of Shawty Lo's third single, "Foolish," is played at the end. However, at the end of the video "to be continued" is seen on the screen.

Controversy[edit]

"Dunn Dunn" was intended to be a diss directly aimed at T.I. In T.I.'s song No Matter What (T.I. song) from Paper Trail, T.I. says "So you up and coming rappers wanna diss, just kill it. I'm officially the realest, point blank, period." which is directed to Shawty Lo. The album also features a song called What Up, What's Haapnin' that directly disses Shawty Lo with lines such as "Still I hear you loud and clear on ya lil' song, go on get ya dissin' on while the king gone" and "'Cause I yell Bankhead and you felt left out, I ain't mention yo name that's what all this 'bout?"

On May 16, 2008, Shawty Lo released a video asking anyone who knows T.I. to send him T.I.'s high school yearbook picture, saying that he wanted to prove that T.I. is not really from Bankhead. He offered cash to anyone who would. T.I. continued to insult Shawty Lo, saying Shawty Lo only shows disrespect towards T.I. because he is successful.

Remix[edit]

  • Rapper Ace Hood has a freestyle titled "We Here (Dunn, Dunn)" freestyling over this beat on his mixtape, Ace Won't Fold.
