Markham, Illinois doesn’t exactly seem like the best place to get your daily dose of hip-hop, but 28-year-old Melissa Young is looking to change that. Known to the masses as Kid Sister, the Fool’s Good/Downtown Records star hit it big with her ‘07 smash, Pro Nails, featuring Kanye West, and she intends to keep the momentum going with her newest single, Get Fresh. Produced by XXXChange and DJ A-Trak, this bass and drum-heavy record with a Caribbean twist will lead into the release of her debut album, Dream Date, which is still set for release on November 25, despite rumors of delays. As the Chi-Town Northsider continues to take the music scene by storm by rocking parties and causing all-around dancefloor chaos from the U.S. to Europe, new listeners should begin to appreciate the funketeer’s unique style and sensibility.
