Kid Sister is Chicago. She makes rap music and works at a children's clothing store slanging bibs and teething rings. Yes, her hype man J2K of Flosstradamus is her real brother, and yes that does rule. Together they took the Chi-town music scene by storm, rocking parties and causing all around dancefloor mayhem. This was followed by tours with Kanye West's DJ A-Trak (one of her main producers and co-owner of Fool's Gold Records). 2006 found Kid Sister selling-out shows from Chicago to Paris, including an appearance at the Pitchfork Music Festival. The media responded favorably, with features on MTV ("My Block"), Pitchfork, i-D Magazine, XLR8R, the New York Times, Billboard and the cover of URB's "Next 1000" issue, among others.
Building on the strength of this early buzz, Kid Sister hit the studio and released two singles on Fool's Gold ("Control" and "Pro Nails"). Frequent international touring followed throughout 2007, including an appearance at Coachella, a sold out show at SXSW, and a full US tour with her fellow labelmates. Kanye West also took notice, adding a verse to her "Pro Nails" single (which he released on his "Can't Tell Me Nothing" mixtape) and appearing in the music video, which quickly became an MTV favorite.
With her Downtown/Fool's Gold full-length debut on the way featuring A-Trak, Xxxchange of Spank Rock, and others on production duties, Kid Sister is taking this.
Press on Kid Sister:
"Updating L'Trimm's old-school style for post-Lil' Kim times, this tiny diva spins rhymes about Baby Phat and guys who won't quit calling." – ROLLING STONE
"Thank God: another female MC-In a word, awesome."—BILLBOARD
"As cool as ice cream on a summer day-her true claim to (future) fame is a mix of hip-hop, pop, and electronica that will surely launch the bi-racial 20-something-year-old out of obscurity and into the light with her debut album." – BLACK BEAT
"Clean-burning, spitfire flow, bursting with fly-girl bravado, punch lines and club hollers." -REMIX MAGAZINE
Although his unique sound sees no boundaries, New Jersey's Nadus truly excels at creating and producing fast-paced Juke, hard-hitting hip-hop, and energetic Jersey Club under the umbrella of East Coast Club music.
Nadus has come a long way since Dirty South Joe, Tim Dolla, Mike V, and the Brick Bandits family put him on the map when he was only fifteen years old. Now at twenty years old, Nadus' signature sound and masterful performances behind the decks have taken him as far as Sydney, Australia. His original productions and remixes have been released on labels like Ninjatune, Palms Out Sounds, Ghettophiles, and Kingdom's Fade To Mind Imprint. He has produced music for the Seattle rapper, Eighty4Fly and is the official DJ and producer for the rap group, NJ Rebels. Nadus is also the co-founder of the "Thread" party with Exrahk, DJ Reck, and Elete of St. Joe Louis.
