“I’ve [almost] finished all of my record,”. Her debut full-length, titled “Dream Date,” is currently set to drop this fall on Downtown Records. Kid Sister got her start of course as the MC of local DJ duo Flosstradamus (Josh “J2K” Young is her brother) and with her “Pro Nails” single, the video to which featured an appearance by one Kanye West. With only a minute amount of material actually released, the buzz around this potential new queen of hip-hop is so overwhelming that when her mug graced the cover of URB this summer the immediate gut reaction was “Yeah, that makes a lot of sense,” and not “Wait, she doesn’t even have a record yet!” She’s even been nominated for BET award.
Needless to say, the album will arrive amidst a wave of expectations, and it’s a record from a Chicago artist as well, a city that’s recently set the bar so highly for hip-hop. For now, she’s planning a trip to Miami to finish up one last track for the album, with Pharrell Williams. “I’m recording with Pharrell,” she says. “That is what dreams are made of. Pharrell fucking Williams. I mean, listen to his songs.” The release of Kid Sister’s “Dream Date” has been delayed for a bit of time, but she insists that it’s only because of her scrupulous work ethic. “I’m just working hard, I’m not rushing,” she says. “But I always work hard, you know? For someone who does what I do, compared to my peers, I’m really anal. I’m really a perfectionist. Like, this shit better be right. I think it was because how I was raised—if you don’t do it right, don’t do it at all.”
