~Excerpt from Three L's by Yejide The Night Queen
Yejide the Night Queen spits powerful, raw lyrics, sings melodic harmonies and smoothly changes her rhythms to articulate her sensual tenor-tone throughout NYC and beyond. Like royalty, she's charismatic and comfortable when expounding her timeless lyrics. Rough, rugged and refined, Yejide's verbal essence is skillfully manipulated to guarantee your listening pleasure without today's redundant samples or topics.
Yejide's community and charitable works have resulted in the "Womon Award 2000" from WERISE (Womyn Empowered through Revolutionary Ideas Supporting Enterprise) for contributing to 'the powerful movement of women artists and entrepreneurs'. She's received national love through the Black Track Newspaper, Shout NYC, Blu, RedEye and Mass Appeal magazines, college radio stations, independent documentaries and video plugs from Def Comedy Jam, MTV's The Grind, BAM's Dance Africa and Japan's Dance Field video series. She represented for Planet Brooklyn when she accompanied Breez Evahflowin & Poison Pen (her Stronghold fam) to Theatre Barbey in Bordeaux, France for the 4-day Hip Hop Concert & showcase, Per4mentalz.
Yejide (phonetically pronounced yeh-jih-day) has graced stages with her dancer, Serge and KRS-One, Pam Africa, the Roots, Rha Goddess, dead prez, Medusa, Mos Def, Jessica Care Moore, Abiodun (the Last Poets), Apani, Pharaoh's Daughter, Baba Israel, Kte Elevitch, InI Mighty Lock Down, The Anomalies Crew, Second 2 Last, Omega Moon, Professor Shuman, Mother Cheeba, Ngoma, Imani Uzuri, Regenerated Headpiece, Stahhr The Femcee, Tha Remainz, Afi, Yah Supreme, Flo Brown, Apollo Heights and countless others.
Her CD, "SEVENTH!" is still circulating throughout the world with production by DJ Evil D of Da BeatMinerz (Playstation/Rivers Run Deep), Scienz Of Life (Queen In Exile), & Mic One of Track Team Productions (Earth Tones/Use What You Got). This project was released to re-humanize the senses for the rebirth of Hip Hop...
RIVERS RUN DEEP pays homage to the spirit of wombmen and the depths of our inr-chi. EARTH TONES is a symbolic tune that invigorates individualism and a respect for the art of Hip Hop. PLAYSTATION is Yejide The Night Queen realigning into Storm The Mama Wize. QUEEN IN EXILE is a verbal illustration of historic value. USE WHAT YOU GOT tells a lot about the Night Queen... Relationships are a blessing in DREAMS OF SUNSHINE, a special take on Steel Pulse's 'Throne Of Gold'. SUMMERTIME is her rendition of the Porgy & Bess tune accompanied by Survival Soundz' with lead vocalist, Carla 'C#' Gomez on background vocals.
