Published Aug 21, 2014Taking a lengthy break after her ill-fated 2009 LP Ultraviolet (and a handful of follow-up projects), Kid Sister returned with a her 2009 LP new video last year before disappearing again. Today, with little warning, she's dropped a brand new mixtape.
The release is called Dusk2Dawn: The Diary of Jane Jupiter, and sees Kid Sis working with Chad Hugo of the Neptunes, Dâm-Funk, GTA, DJ WOOOOW and more.
In a lengthy Facebook post, Kid Sister said that the mixtape is something special. Here's an excerpt from her statement:
It isn't some quickly thrown together assembly of songs I thought would be a "good look" or a body of work I had others do for a check or a project bank rolled by some rich dude pulling marionette strings behind the scenes. What I'm going to give you took heart. What I'm going to give you took everything I had bottled up inside of me. It took bravery and courage. It took all the money I had in the world. At times it took my sanity and peace of mind (I don't think I've gotten a week's worth of good sleep in at least 3 years). It took getting out of my comfort zone, getting honest and saying some things I felt like I couldn't tell anyone - and often times honestly didn't HAVE anyone to tell. It took me getting fed up with coloring by the numbers, feeling like I could only ever do one thing and only with the permission of others. It took me getting fed up with being safe and not taking chances. It took shedding artifice and finally being vulnerable and real… and it was terrifying... and I almost didn't make it.
