The Youngest Ballerette

Ten-year-old Sucka Free signee Kayla talks about what it means to be young, gifted and brown

When the subject of school came up, she clammed up again. Although she loves math and science, talk of school doesn't make her glow like her career does.

But it's the science of rap and the math of counting money that she'll be concentrating on for the next few years. If the album fails to take off and her opportunities opening for the biggest names in rap dry up, no worries. Kayla is a straight-A student who plans to become a doctor.

And when her career as a microphone doctor flatlines?

Kayla has been touring with the Black Eyed Peas, Fat 
Joe, Scarface and Juvenile.
