Prom is probably the most major of high school moments. The dress, the date, the dance… a night you’ll remember and reminisce over for the rest of your life. So, what could be better than prom? Erm, how about FIVE proms? Because that’s exactly what Kitty Pryde got. The Florida-born, New York based-rapper, who is currently on tour with another fashion favorite Danny Brown, may be young— but she’s got the smart rhymes and sharp delivery of a stage vet. Her first single, “Ok Cupid,” which was recorded on her laptop in her bedroom closet, was named #17 on Rolling Stone’s 50 Best Songs Of 2012, and “Orion’s Belt,” the catchiest of collabs with Riff Raff, is currently sitting at over 1.2 million views on YouTube. But before all the fame, Kitty was just a regular Daytona Beach babe, working at the mall and planning prom outfits. Like we said, the girl’s got experience. “I’ve gone a couple times with girlfriends, once with my gross ex-boyfriend, and most recently with my BFF Grant. He didn’t even become my BFF until I forced him to take me to prom like three days after I met him, but now we’re inseparable, so that’s the magic of prom for you.”
