Kid SisterWaterloo Park, Nov. 8
Dancing around the stage like an infinitely more attractive Richard Simmons, Kid Sister was as energetic as GZA was lazy. Flanked by two dancers in black bodysuits and shiny reflective headgear, the Chicago MC rapped a mile a minute all while busting the latest club moves. She kicked off with the two opening tracks from Ultraviolet, her forthcoming debut due this month after a yearlong delay and several title changes. The set previewed the bulk of the album with "Get Fresh" and "Step" bleeding into "Big N Bad" and "54321." With her real-life kid brother (J2K of Flosstradamus) on the tables, big sister chastised lames for blowing up her cell on "Telephone" and gave props to the 1980s Second City club scene on "I'll House You." "This is some Women's Workout World bullshit," Kid Sister panted. "Ladies, fuck the treadmill, just get up here and dance!" Dozens obliged, filling the stage with estrogen for sassy salon anthem "Pro Nails," an adorable toddler easily stealing the show. Rarely is a stage full of dancing female fans at a hip-hop show empowering. Leave it to Kid Sister to pump the girl power.
