Expectations are high for Kid Sister, whose kid brother is Flosstradamus half Josh “J2K” Young. This young (Young) Chicago rapper teamed with A-Trak for last year’s “Damn Girl”, and she also played something called the Pitchfork Music Festival. “Control” is the A-side of her new 12″ on Fool’s Gold, the label founded by Kanye West-approved turntablist A-Trak and New York DJ Nick Catchdubs, where you’ll also find fellow Chicago MCs Cool Kids. Spank Rock’s XXXChange supports Kid Sister with frantic handclaps and buzzing synths on this boisterous club-rap track, which shows off her animated flow and energetic wordplay. “South Sider, that’s why I say more,” Kid Sister says, and then says a whole lot more. From her Chitown boasts to XXXChange’s playful scratching, it’s summer fun right on schedule. Kid Sister’s MySpace page also features a collaboration with West himself.
“Frantic handclaps and buzzing synths” wouldn’t have been our choice of words, but…WE HEARTILLY ENDORSE THIS PRODUCT AND/OR EVENT.
