Kitty Pryde – Okay Cupid [Official Video]

When I saw the still for this video, I was instantly on my guard.  White, ginger teenage girl rapping…my spidey sense was tingling.  Danger.  But, I gave her a chance.  After all I actually liked Gucci Gucci by Kreayshawn, so who am I to judge?

Pleasantly surprised.

The beat was a laid back spacey beat – it seems to distort a vocal sample for the basis of the best, as well as some (a lot) of hi-hats.

Kitty Pryde is the surprise though.  She can actually rap.  I liked Kreayshawn’s ability to create a catchy song, but Kitty actually seems to have some deft wordplay for someone so young.  She doesn’t force things, she has an effortless flow that really matches her entire vibe.

The above video/song sounds like a rap song from a suburban white teenage girl.  It works though.  Beat is hot, and this girl actually has some bars on the downlow.
