Featured Kitty stories

Last Friday was the Fourth Of July, which meant we didn’t run one of these lists. But the videos kept piling up, and so we’re giving you our picks for this week’s five best videos, as well as, without comment, last week’s picks. You deserve to have a lot of shit to watch on your… More »

The Office may have concluded its nine-season run in 2013, but the series is still very much alive for rapper, singer, writer, and Office MEGA fan Kitty. (The series is also still very much alive for anyone with Netflix, a beating heart in their cold chest, and a love 2 laugh.) I recently chatted with… More »

This week’s 5 Best Songs is perhaps the most diverse entry in the franchise’s young history. It ranges from polished pop to acoustic melancholia, post-punk wails to cloud rap ephemera. Check it out below. More »

Kitty – “Second Life” Video

Last month, Kitty released her Frostbite EP, and today she’s sharing a video for the stand-out track “Second Life.” The video, directed by the production company Many Hearts (the team of Jesse Gouldsbury and Johnny Weiss), stars the Brooklyn-based producer Maxo playing a Kitty-themed video game. It’s an impressive multimedia project that follows the rapper-turned-singer’… More »

Stream Kitty Frostbite EP

Kitty’s come a long way since the doe-eyed rap of “Okay Cupid,” which I’ll still stand by as a hella fun track (though it didn’t age as well as I would have hoped). As someone who’s been following her from the beginning, it’s been a really fun (and surprising) maturation to watch. I think it’… More »

Kitty – “Miss U”

Kitty continues to step away from hip-hop and into the dance-pop world with “Miss U,” the first song released from her upcoming EP, Frost Bite. Between this and the EP she released earlier this year, impatiens, it’s clear Kitty is leaving behind her old gritty-rap self along with the “Pryde” of Kitty Pryde. You ca… More »

Kitty Raps, Gets Kawaii On A Pair Of New Tracks

Brooklyn-via-Florida rapper Kitty still hasn’t put out her debut album, still supposedly called flowerviolence, but what she has released so far has been mighty impressive. She could have easily been pigeon-holed into joke rap after the success of “Okay Cupid,” but she’s managed to rise above that and become one of the more intriguing up-and-comer… More »

Kitty – “Marijuana” Video

A couple weeks ago, Kitty announced a tour with the similarly named Kitten, and shared the excellently hazy Chrome Sparks-produced impatiens EP B-side “Marijuana.” Now there’s a video for that song, shot by Shomi Patwary and edited by Kitty herself. It’s a pretty low-key affair, showing the rapper/singer wandering around Chinatown with a bike and… More »

Kitty – “Marijuana” (Prod. Chrome Sparks)

Brooklyn-via-Florida rapper/singer/internet user Kitty (formerly Kitty Pryde) released her surprise impatiens EP last month. She’s now shared another new track called “Marijuana,” adding vocals to a woozily chill instrumental from Chrome Sparks. As usual, Kitty herself has something to say about the music:… More »

Stream Kitty’s impatiens EP + Watch “brb” Video

Last week we got to hear “☆​:​*​・°☆​:​* emob0unce °☆​.​*​・°☆,” a song from Kitty’s surprise impatiens EP. Now you can listen to the full four song release on a Youtube playlist that provides a visual to go with each one. The first clip, for “brb,” is the proper music video in the bunch, but it’s got… More »

Kitty – “285”

Last month, the young but storied Brooklyn DIY venue 285 Kent closed its doors, provoking a level of sentimentality not often seen when the inevitable happens and a warehouse can no longer hold shows. And now the Florida rapper Kitty has joined the legions paying tribute to the late venue. She’s just shared a fond… More »

Kitty, Sasha Go Hard, & Tink – “Spotless” (Prod. Ryan Hemsworth & Little Cloud)

Just because three female rappers show up on one posse cut, that doesn’t mean we’re dealing with a Tumblr-rap “Ladies Night.” One cool thing about “Spotless,” the new track that unites the forever starry-eyed Kitty with tough Chicago ladies Sasha Go Hard and Tink, is how smooth and seemsless it sounds. The beat, from Rya… More »

Kitty – “Second Life”

“I’m tired of waiting for other people to decide what happens to my music because it’s boring.” And with that, Kitty unleashes the first track off her debut full-length flowerviolence. She’s still working on the album, but according to her recent Reddit AMA, it should be out in the winter. If “Second Life” is a… More »

Kitty – “Hittin Lixx” Video

Delinquents breaking glass and throwing glitter in an industrial space is the perfect treatment for Kitty’s ode to love hazards “Hittin’ Lixx” — and it is exactly that, with the Florida rapper smashing light bulbs with a group of friends. The clip includes a stoic cameo from producer Hot Sugar and rowdy appearance from her… More »

Kitty – “Everything Is Embarrassing” (Sky Ferreira Cover)

Kitty, formerly Kitty Pryde, is a rapper, and in her year in the spotlight, she hasn’t really offered much indication that she has any non-rapping musical ambitions. But that might be changing. She’s now recorded her own faithful, heartfelt cover of Sky Ferreira’s drug-pop hit “Everything Is Embarrassing,” singing the whole thing in a quiet… More »

Kitty – “Ay Shawty 3.0″ (Feat. Lakutis) Video

At Stereogum’s Range Life party during SXSW way back in March, Kitty, the self-proclaimed rap game Taylor Swift, shared her stage with the partied-out Das Racist associate Lakutis, and it was a for-real sweet moment. Together, they performed “Ay Shawty,” a track from Kitty’s D.A.I.S.Y. Rage EP. (Like “Barbie Jeep,” the Adult Swim single that… More »

Last week, Adult Swim kicked off this summer’s Singles Series with “36″ Chain,” the new track from El-P and Killer Mike’s Run The Jewels project. Today, they follow it up with “Barbie Jeep,” the latest from the Florida rapper Kitty, formerly Kitty Pryde. Hot Sugar produced this one, and it’s a sidelong dance track about… More »

Q&A: Kitty On Danny Brown, Sharpening Her Rap Skills, And What’s Next

If “keeping it real” still matters at all in hip-hop, Kitty (formerly Pryde) ceremoniously dismantled the notion that she doesn’t this week when she published a mini-treatise on the complicated politics of sexual assault. Yet regardless of her consistently brainy web engagement, she continues to be regarded as merely a meme. Before her piece hit… More »
