New Kid on the Block

Melissa Young, 26, aka Kid Sister (Chicago, IL) is a newcomer to a dull female MC world. I first heard of her when Chicago was featured on MTV2's "My Block" series but she's been hot in the Chi since the summer months of 06. This is mainly due to her teaming up with her brothers DJ crew Flosstradamus.

Flosstradamus throws parties that attract people from different scenes throughout the city, from Hip-Hop heads to art school students. This isn't anything new or groundbreaking though. Major cities across the U.S. have promoters/DJ's throwing these types of parties in their city limits and abroad. Here in Atlanta it's Caleb Gauge and the Sloppy Seconds crew, in Philly the originators of the style, Hollertronix, and in NYC, Roxy Cottontail. But in Chicago it's all about Flosstradamus and they have built up their rep over the past year to take their show on wheels and have their MC, Kid Sister, gain fame of her own.

Couple of trax for you.
