Yo Majesty is what hip-hop used to be and should be. Hailing from Florida, these girls adopt a punk approach to mixing ghetto-tech, booty-bass and a hell of a lot of Salt ‘n’ Pepa attitude to their sexual/political filled rhymes. With song titles like ‘Kryptonite Pussy’ and ‘Booty Klap’, you can only imagine what ruckus they must bring to their shows.
With hip-hop becoming more macho than a liquored up Collingwood footballer, it’s a welcome relief to hear girls take over the genre and put a whole fresh spin on things.
The below comment from their myspace page sums it all up:
“Hip-hop has become overrun with lyrics that are anti-women, anti-gay, pro-bling and frankly, boring. It’s all about them, and none about you. YO! MAJESTY ain’t having it. Shunda and Jwl. both embody the best elements of Chuck and Flav as an overtly sexual Public Enemy that draws you in with flash and then sets about realigning your dome. The girls ain’t wearing no clocks, but you best believe they know what time it is.”
Now you know what time it is, get out there and pick up the EP through Domino/EMI.
