An Evening with Beth Ditto and Yo Majesty
- Words: Andrew Smith
We asked Beth Ditto, the fearless leader of The Gossip, to perform a daunting task for her first turn as interviewer: get to know the force of nature that is Yo Majesty. Tampa, Florida's fiercest female rap trio blew the roof off 2007's South by Southwest festival with a performance that was in-your-face, topless at times and with brazen rhymes about "krypotonite pussy." This was Beth's first time meeting Yo Maj, but after battling for mic time and bonding over "saggy titties and stretchmarks," it was love. In fact, Beth was paparazzi'd the night after this interview wearing a Yo Maj shirt and hanging out with Kate Moss. Yo Maj 4 life!
