Thank god for New Yorker‘s music critic, Sasha Frere-Jones. Had it not been for SFJ’s ever attentive ear, we never would have heard of lesbian hip-hoppers, Yo Majesty.
The ladies – Shunda-K, Jwl. B and Shon-B – hail from Tampa, Florida, and have dedicated their bass-heavy, unrefined sound to giving the world what it needs: “soul stirring”. And with lyrics like, “Rub on my monkey, kiss on my monkey, feel on my monkey,” they’re stirring more than just souls.
We’re so excited by the girls’ sapphic sounds, we’ve included not one, not two, but three videos! Above you’ll see the video for “Club Action”. After the jump you can get down on “Hustle Mode” and an interview between Yo Majesty and The Gossip’s leading lesbian (and Keira Knightley‘s weight-gaining “inspiration”), Beth Ditto.
