Ghetto Pop Life (2003)

A highly anticipated debut that could have done without the hoopla, Kid Sister's Ultraviolet isn't the "ladies first" declaration that was hoped for, or the redefinition of party-rap that was hinted at, but it's still highly recommended for party people. ...
Leanin' on Slick (2013)
