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.

    What’s the name of the guitar sample in the background? And which song has it been used in before?

    Never mind, I found it. And if someone are wondering, it’s run DMC with Rock Box.
