Tha Best Eva Written…Outkased mixtape featuring Shunda K and rapper Jerzy backed by Outkast instrumentals to surface in April.

“I’m sitting here having a heart to heart wit my mom and we’re talking bout where I come from…”

Shunda K of Domino Records artists Yo! Majesty has just returned from 30-plus days and 40-plus shows criss-crossing the US. Now, instead of heading to the UK for the extensive Yo! Majesty tour there (“I have decided dat I will not be performing wit [band mate] Jwl B as Yo! Majesty on dis upcoming tour”), Shunda K is at home in Itty Bitty Plant City, Florida, hanging with mom and plotting her next move.

Shunda doesn’t elaborate about sitting out the UK Yo! Majesty tour other than to refer to The Boston Herald article entitled “With partner in jail, Yo! Majesty’s special K goes solitary route” where Shunda says of Jwl B, “…she’s heading down a road where she’s going to end up in jail, where she is, or dead. I just can’t be a part of it.”

And she’s not… the UK Yo! Majesty tour will feature Jwl B (who is now out of prison on bond) and former Yo! Majesty band member Shon B who quit the group shortly after it was signed.

“…y’all will have to stay tuned to da book for all da intimate details. In da meantime, I still got a lot of things to do here,” Shunda says.

Some of what she is doing includes appearing on lots of new tracks for the people including “Buck You Like A Billionaire” — the new Peaches track featuring Shunda K. The cut is available now via Peaches label XL/Beggar’s Banquet as part of the newly released Drums of Death – The Peaches Mixtape. Grab the mixtape here and stream “Buck You Like A Billionaire” over at ShundaK.com.

Also available is Shunda K’s collaboration with hot Brooklyn-based producer Kotchy called Le Passion, Yo! — a four-song, FREE, digital-only EP that recently came in as the #3 most added hip-hop record at CMJ college radio and is being blogged about all over the interwebs. Shunda says lead track “First Encounter” (MP3) “describes my confidence and knowledge on who I am and what I expect from my lady, believing she is my heaven on earth!!!” Continued below…
