Kid Sister Announces "Ultraviolet" Tour, Debut LP Out November 17th

September 22, 2009 3:16 PM ET

On November 17th, Chicago-based rapper Kid Sister will finally release her debut album Ultraviolet. "Pro Nails," her hit collaboration with Kanye West, is on the disc, along with first singe "Right Hand Hi" (hear it below). Ultraviolet finds Kid Sister teaming with Cee-Lo and Estelle as well as producers like A-Trak, Spank Rock's XXXchange, DJ Gant-Man and more. Kid Sister's debut LP, originally titled Dream Date, was scheduled for release in fall 2008, but some addition and subtraction of tracks pushed the release back nearly a full year.

To celebrate the release of her hotly anticipated debut, Kid Sister will hit the road this October with Flosstradamus (the duo's J2K is Kid Sister's kid brother). The trek kicks off October 19th in Vancouver, explores the West Coast, visits Chicago and New York and wraps up November 28th in Toronto.

“Bizness”

Tune-Yards | 2011

The opening track to Merrill Garbus’ second album under the Tune-Yards banner (she also plays in the trio Sister Suvi), “Bizness” is a song about relationships that is as colorful as the face paint favored by Garbus both live and in her videos. Disjointed funk bass, skittering African beats, diced-and-sliced horns and Garbus’ dynamic voice, which ranges from playful coos to throat-shredding howls, make “Bizness” reminiscent of another creative medium. “I'd like for them not to be songs as much as quilts or collages or something,” Garbus said.
