As most of y’all know, Grammy-nominated R&B artist Wayna was detained at the Houston airport during South By Southwest last year for carrying a prop for her single Billyclub, which ironically talks about police brutality. The Ethopian born, DC based was held for 12 hours in jail and released on $5,000 bond, but eventually the charges were droppped. The song itself is powerful but took on a new dimension after this experience. This month, Wayna also got fellow DC artist Wale to spot some bars, and the track is now nominated for a Grammy for best Rap/Sung collaboration. Check it.

Also, check her interview where she describes the experience.
