Whether you like it or not, Melisa Youngs Ã¼ber-catchy songs have probably been stuck in your head once or twice before. The 30-year-old dance-floor femme-cee (better known as Kid Sister ) burst into your consciousness when she released “Pro Nails” with Kanye West two years ago and hasnt looked back since. She released her debut LP, Ultraviolet, just over a year ago, and if that sonic snack is starting to get a little stale to you, then youll be glad to know that the Young has had a little something cooking up for you this whole time.
The Chicagoist has revealed that her new mixtape, Kiss Kiss Kiss, will be released via Fools Gold Records today. K3 is set to be a collection of the Chicago-based Youngs past collaborations with a few new freestyles thrown in, and the man behind the mix is Brooklyn resident, and Fools Gold co-founder, Nick Catchdubs. You can get taste of the mixtapes Afrojack-produced title track at Discobelle, or download the whole damn thing here.
