“Kid Sister is wrapping up a new EP and her second album – they’re both coming out crazy, and while she’s feeling the vibe, she wanted to jump on some fun stuff like we did for the Kiss Kiss Kiss mixtape. I love DJ Nehpets’ juke remix of Kelly Rowland’s “Motivation” and knew she would sound crazy on it. But I had no idea she would freak it like THIS!?!? A sweaty summer jam for Chi-town and beyond.”
When even 50 Cent is rocking curls, you know that Summer ’11 is getting off to a particularly wavy start. So what better time to release “The Activator Mix” into the world?!?
