Star Song: It’s Over Now – Kin4Life

Ki4Life Money Brings Trouble

Today’s song is It’s Over Now by female rap duo KIN4LIFE. The track is coming from their latest album, Money Brings Trouble, released in August under their label, Noriq Records.

Now these girls have been featured on NEW LEASE MUSIC twice (with tracks Goes Up with DJ CELLBLOCK and Never Stop with LIQUOR STORE BANDIT and PALEFACE JUNKIES).Now this time they got their own spot and now it’s time to find out a little more about these hot properties…

Born and raised in Mt Vernon, New York (a town renowned for its contribution to hip hop in the 80’s and 90’s) lifetime friends Nor and IQ decided to put their hometown back on the hip hop map with their KELLIS/NEPTUNES-esque beats – and at that point, they never look back! Launching their record label in 2002, they waste no time in releasing the album KIN4LIFE Volume.1 and two EPs, Rock Star and I Love Kin4Life. Success soon followed when the video to their hit single, Make Up Girl, was on the Click List Countdown on MTV’s logo for 11 weeks and was nominated for The Click List’s Top Ten Videos of 2009.

These female emcees- who collaborated with DJ JAZZY JEFF, LIL FLIP and BLACK ICE–headlined the GQ Magazine New York Nightlife Award Show as well as Pride celebration in New York, Atlanta and Philadelphia. Best of all, they were named Group of the Year by HipHop.com 2010 Readers Poll.

Without a shadow of a doubt they deserve the hype – just listen to It’s Over Now. Their raw wordplay coupled with their signature beats just shows that female rappers are not dead in the hip hop game.

If you’re feeling It’s Over Now, head over to iTunes where you can check the rest of the tracks on the album Money Brings Troubles.
