Infamous Syndicate was an American hip hop duo from Chicago, comprising the female rappers Shawnna and Teefa.


Rashawnna Guy and Lateefa met at Lateefa's 17th birthday party in 1997.[1] After scoring local radio play with their demos, they signed with Relativity Records, who released their lone LP, Changing the Game, in 1999. The album rose to #18 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and #50 on the R&B charts[2] on the strength of the hit single "Here I Go", which reached #8 on the Hot Rap Singles chart and #63 on the R&B charts.[3] Relativity dropped the group in 2000, after which Shawnna pursued a solo career; Lateefa worked in radio and as a street poet.

They also contributed to Ami Suzuki's song titled Please stay tuned (featuring Infamous Syndicate) from her album INFINITY EIGHTEEN Vol.2 released in 2000.
