Yo Majesty Tonight at the Highline


The Tampa-based answer to the age-old question “What if Mystikal had been a riot grrrl?” soldiers on. You’re already familiar with the outline: onstage nudity, that song they had called “Kryptonite Pussy,” the uneasy truce with the Spank Rocks and Amanda Blanks with which they’ve been lumped. As rappers, they’re poor-to-fair, which means they’re better than Kid Sister and a bit worse than Saigon: If not for the fact that both of ’em are gay, that’d put Yo Majesty right around Pitbull in the Florida rap hierarchy. With Does it Offend You, Yeah?, the Shalitas, and Time Machine. — ZACH BARON.

YO MAJESTY, Highline Ballroom, 431 W 16th St., Chelsea. Tickets are $12.
