Mix-Tapes Available Online

Hip-hop supremo Shunda K has responded to splitting with her former bandmate and being dropped from her label by posting 42 free tracks online.

Shunda, who left the dirty-electro rap outfit Yo Majesty following a dispute with fellow band member Jwl B, has marked her parting of the ways with former label Domino by releasing two mix-tapes, both of which can be heard here.

For the first collection, The Best Ever Written...Outkast , Shunda raps over 21 Outkast instrumental tracks, while Kollaborations boasts tracks made with other artists such as Peaches and Killola.

Shunda herself explained: "Domino didn't move quickly enough for me. I’ve been da outcast all my damn life. Being gay and being raised in a religious household is not a great match. It’s God HISSELF dats blessing me with everything I have from da knowledge to da wisdom, to da woman in my life and my career. Da devil is a liar!!!”
