Throwback Tuesdays: Yo Majesty--"Club Action"
There's something about the early music of Yo Majesty that will always have a soft spot in my heart. Back when this Tampa-based duo used to be a trio, Shunda K, Jwl B, and Shon B, were my favorite female MCs of 2007.
They were butch, black, badass rappers who were sort of like a 2007 version of 2 Live Crew. And their music is just as crunk. Hell, they had songs called "Kryptonite Pussy." If that's not 2 Live Crew-esque, I dont' know what is.
Yo Majesty had lot's of media attention that year after a bunch of raucous performances across the country, including a few breakout gigs at SXSW, but haven't been too visible this year at all. I think it's because they need to bring Shon B back into the group, but that's me.
Anyway, the video above is from their glory (year?) and let's you know what type of vibe they were on at the time. If any South Florida promoters know how to get in touch with them, they definitely need some Miami shows soon. Check out the video and you'll see why.
