Allyssa Chic's Hip-Hop and Fashions in "Kiss Kiss" Video; Fort Lauderdale Musical Super Find
"Got these bitches ripping out their hair like Brazilian," sings Miramar hip-hop artist Allyssa Chic in her new song "Kiss Kiss," set to the beat of Lloyd Banks' "Start It Up." The video just hit the web this week, and though we don't know much about this lady, damn straight, she's chic.
Her Twitter wallpaper features a quote by Coco Chanel: "Success is often achieved by those who don't know that failure is inevitable." Clearly Coco's an influence, because her ensembles in this video are like next-level fierce. Selling bananas (suggestive!) to cars driving by in a contemporary Carmen Miranda getup reminds one a little of The Perez Family meets Madonna hitchhiking nude in Sex. Next she's a pinup girl, then op art, and her getup when rapping from the parking lot, girl, I wanna borrow that.
The video (after the jump) is straight-up Florida, but her Facebook says both that she now lives in New York and that we can expect an upcoming mixtape, CoCo Complex, out soon. Also, check out her song "South Florida," in which Chic calls out just about any city in South Florida you can claim to be from.
