Yo Majesty lands record deal

Our fave clubtastic queer hip-hop ladies, Tampa-based Yo Majesty has finally snagged the record deal that their song “Kyrptonite Pussy” should have earned them last year. YM’s new label, Domino Records, is also home to indie rock favorites Franz Ferdinand and Arctic Monkeys. It’s refreshing that the label is expanding its horizons, and that it’s expanding them queer and West.
