Kid Sister was born Melisa Young on July 3, 1980 in Markham, Illinois. She had a hard life growing up in South suburban Chicago due predominantly to her family’s financial situation and has channeled that energy into her art from a young age. Holding down various jobs (from Bath and Body Works, to working at a baby store “slanging bibs and teething rings”) she has acquired a degree in film from Columbia College Chicago. She started rapping in 2005, becoming an MC at monthly dance parties hosted by the DJ duo Flosstradamus (DJ J2K of the duo being her brother and current DJ), which was featured in MTV’s My Block that same year.
She made URB’s “The Next 1000” cover in April 2007, and was signed to Kanye West’s DJ A-Trak’s label Fool’s Gold. Her first single featuring Kanye West “Pro Nails” was later released to much critical acclaim. Her debut album Ultra-Violet is scheduled for release Nov 17, 2009 with Downtown Records featuring Artists like Kanye West, Estelle, and Cee-Lo. As well as Producers like Rusko, Brian Kennedy, and Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso of the DJ group Swedish House Mafia.
