Things you need to know about Kitty Pryde:
1. Her EP Haha, I’m Sorry came out in June
2. She’s from America’s Wang (aka Florida)
3. Don’t sit in the front row of her shows unless you like glitter
Kitty Pryde claims that she is a part of the Shit-Hop movement on her Facebook page, but I think she fits somewhere in between trip-hop and PBR&B. Imagine Frank Ocean has a baby with Rebecca Black’s Adderall snorting older sister (haha j/k …kinda).
She’s the ever-giggling laid back rapper chick who delivers lines with a deadpan wit that is irresistible for card carrying hipsters everywhere. She’s like nerdy and creepy at the same time, but still has a gangster edge dressed up in hipster clothes. (Even her mom’s cool @mamapryde: “iced tea fan and proud mama of kitty pryde” or “Can’t find my mop so…here I am” …hilarious).
After the release of her video for Okay Cupid Kitty Pryde has been ascending as the princess of hipster R&B / hip-hop and I’m pretty sure she’s going to be there to stay. Go download her EP Haha, I’m Sorry on bandcamp and throw her some love on her Facebook page.
