Feeling a bit camera shy


KID is an up and coming rapper from NYC. Riding the subway solo from age 7 she earned her street cred there and on the court. From a musical family but lacking a real instrument she turned to rap as a form of self-expression. She grew up bumping into artists such as Phillip Glass and Laurie Anderson on a regular basis. Now KID lives in Asheville with her family and writes after her days at the Asheville High library. Life has brought her many blessings including completing a Master’s of Library and Information Science. She was inspired to do this by Mestre Moraes a Capoeira master who lives in Brazil and who she has had the opportunity to visit on several occasions. Her undergrad career from U. of Madison Wisconsin was in Latin American Studies and Spanish. After living in Cuba and South America for 4 and a half years she found a fresh start living in a familiar community of Brooklyn where she played with musicians such as Antibalas and New  York Rumberos. She studied drums with Lee Allen from Your Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band in Asheville. After the fall of the World Trade Centers she moved to a remote town on the coast of South Carolina called Beaufort where she met her husband Mike. As a child she believed she would be a dancer and has studied under the best Cuban and Brazilian dancers in the world. KID hopes to meet Young Thug and Fetty Wap to learn more about their lifestyle and how they have accomplished so much in such a short time.  As an artist KID aims to tell kids to aim high and fear nothing. Even in the hardest of times remember the road blocks only fuel determination.

“i’m k.i.d. kid don’t try to rob me
cuz i’m backed by knife throwing dead latinos
who sacrifice hearts and head dress caminos
now your lost
my sister my brother my fans
i’m telling you now i got 5 billion hands”
