Chicago-bred MC Kid Sister is making quite a splash recently, after being featured in GIANT Magazine, Vibe Magazine and on the cover of URB. Kid Sis got her first claim to fame after she made a track with Kanye West, entitled “Pro Nails,” which was then featured on Kanye’s “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” Mixtape. She’s since released “Control” and several remixes to both tracks. Her album is due out in October, and she’s teaming up with some great artists and producers for her debut. With friends and family in high places (her cousin is J2K of Flosstradamus and her boyfriend is DJ A-Trak), Kid Sis is set to take over the female hip-hop genre. Word is, she was recently in my hometown, Miami, recording with our very own Pharrell Williams. This would definitely be a good look for both sides, so stay tuned to hear what they come up with. For now, download Kid Sister’s “Pro Nails” below.
After just a few months of enjoying some relative limelight, Wale has hopped on the fashion bandwagon that Pharrell and Kanye West started years ago. With Pharrell and Kanye being the unofficial Louis Vuitton, Gucci and high-fashion spokesmen, Wale has become the face of established urban clothing lines like Levi’s and LRG. It seems as though Wale’s fan-base is spreading beyond just bloggers and hipster-hoppers, and Levi’s and LRG feel that Wale can be a fresh, new face for their ad campaigns. Check out the ads and Wale’s street anthem “Nike Boots” available for download below. Wale – “Nike Boots”
Kanye West’s label, GOOD Music, is made up of several of his cohorts and longtime collaborators like Consequence, John Legend, Common, Really Doe and GLC. So, to piggyback off of Ye’s current supersonic fame, the GOOD Music fellas came with a hot song and a video to match. The song, entitled “Disperse,” is Consequence’s track and features GLC and Really Doe. Consequence is of course Q-Tip’s cousin, and is also a decent rapper and is putting in work to live up to the family name. Check out the video link below and keep your eyes peeled for appearances by Pharrell, Chad Hugo, ‘Ye, Lupe and Fam-Lay. Director Rik Cordero did a good job on this one. He seems to be everywhere nowadays. Consequence – “Disperse” Video Over at Rik Cordero’s YouTube Channel
Turns out Pharrell has made the mistake of opening his mouth a lil too wide to paparazzi about his friend Madonna. The Neptunes front man implied that the Hard Candy Madonna is indeed very good at self inflicted publicity. Tell us something we didn’t already know but I am sure Skateboard P will be knocked off the Xmas card list for that remark..or maybe not.
