After decades of lagging behind L.A. and NYC, Chicago is now a hotbed of hip-hop. After Common, Kanye West, and Lupe Fiasco comes Kid Sister, the literal sister of Flosstradamus member Josh Young. More mall rat than hood rat, Kid Sister’s break came with “Pro Nails,” a dance-floor anthem featuring Kanye West that bumps more like Monie Love than any of modern hip-hop’s tried (and worn-out) formulas. It’s clear that Kid Sister is trying something different, mixing electro pop and synths on the bubblegum “Life on TV” and using “Let Me Bang 2009” to confess, “At least I’m tryin’ kinda sorta sorta kinda/Rap more about some girlie shit/Rather than bump and grind.” It’s fresh and original.
