Rising Stars: Yo Majesty, rappers

  • @Elisabray

Yo Majesty, a Christian lesbian rapper duo from Tampa, Florida, challenge the women-bashing, materialistic, homophobic habits of old skool hip-hop – and they're not afraid to be outrageous.

Gospel-raised singer Jwl B sometimes plays bare-chested; Shunda K was once married to a preacher. They've toured with CSS and The Gossip (there's a YouTube clip of Beth Ditto interviewing them ). Their debut full-length album 'Futuristically Speaking... Never Be Afraid' is out on Domino.
