Kid Sister Talks Delayed Debut Album

Kid Sister Talks Delayed Debut Album
Kid Sister's long-awaited debut album for Downtown, tentatively titled "Dream Date," has been pushed back several times since its original July 2008 street date. Regardless, the Chicago MC says she will turn the album in "when I'm ready and we'll assign a date then."

"I turned in the record initially because I was pressured by deadlines, but I didn't feel good about it because it wasn't done. I found myself saying, 'I wish I hadn't done that or this'," Kid Sister tells "So, I petitioned the label heavily to take it back and do it the way I wanted to do it, and they were supportive of it. I want a body of work that really has my stamp on it, so, release dates be damned, I'll turn it in when I'm ready."

The rapper says not only will the title of the album most likely change, but the majority of the material will be new. "Everything is moving around," she says. "Three or four of the original songs will be on there, but everything else will be new for the most part."

Although she wouldn't confirm which producers or guest features will appear on the album, she did say she is working with "different people who she hasn't worked with before."

Aside from working on the album the last couple of months, Kid Sister has also done plenty of press for the Kanye West-assisted lead single "Pro Nails," which first appeared on West's mixtape "Can't Tell Me Nothing," last May. The track will appear on the debut album, according to Kid Sister.

In addition, Kid Sister will be the new face for the Married To The Mob clothing line campaign.
