Tune in to MTV today (2/28) at 3:30 EST to check our girl Kid Sister doing it extra big as part of TRL’s “Spankin New Ladies Week.” We went down to Times Square to film it yesterday (Side note – what the heck is Toby up to these days?) as part of a whirlwind promo run that also included stops to see early supporters DJ Enuff at Hot 97 and Cipha Sounds at Sirius/Shade 45.

Our dudes (The) Count (of Monte Cristal) and Sinden officially announced their signing to Domino Records, which is a nicely timed follow-up to their Essential Mix for BBC’s Radio 1, which aired this past weekend. Here’s the mix (up until the end of the week) and here’s the tracklist. It’s all gone Pete Tong! Kid Sister pops up all over the mix, including her own joints “Pro Nails” and “Switch Board,” her forthcoming collaboration with Pase Rock and Tittsworth called “WTF,” and her guest appearance on Count and Sinden’s first single, “Beeper,” which hits stores on March 16th.
Kid Sister was at Chicago’s B96 this week to film a “Be Seen and Be Heard” segment with their on-air hostess Roxanne about growing up in the South Suburbs, how Kanye got on “Pro Nails,” and much more. Check out the video at the B96 Blog and be sure to leave your comments there so they know to PLAY KID SISTER ON THE RADIO!
