Early life[edit]

Kitty was a clerk at Claire's in Daytona Beach.[20] She started college when she was 16,[21] and signed up to attend classes at the University of Central Florida.[22]

Career[edit]

2010–2011: Jokers in Trousers and The Lizzie McGuire Experience[edit]

In high school, Kitty was interested in writing poetry, and was encouraged by a classmate to try rapping. She wrote songs about an ex-boyfriend as a joke, and shared them via Tumblr.[23] Her first song, titled "Sickfit", was shared in September 2010.[24] In 2011, Kittythen known as Kitty Prydefronted the four-piece hip-hop group Jokers in Trousers. The other members of the all-female group were known as Hamtaro, Mimi-Chan and HH Slider.[25][26] They released a self-titled extended play on May 24, 2011.[27] This would be the group's only release.

In July 2011, one of Kitty's Tumblr followers compiled a mixtape out of songs ripped from her blog, and made it available to download through MediaFire.[23] The mixtape, called The Lizzie McGuire Experience, included the 8 tracks from the Jokers in Trousers EP and 4 other songs.[28] Despite the unofficial nature of the release, Kitty shared the download link through her social media pages.[29][30] On December 22, 2011, Kitty re-released The Lizzie McGuire Experience via Bandcamp. This version contains a shorter track listing, and one new track: "Hood Friday", a cover of "Good Friday" by Why?. Kitty has since admitted to disliking and being embarrassed of the album.[31]

2012–2013: Haha, I'm Sorry and D.A.I.S.Y. Rage[edit]

Kitty released her first single, "Time Is the Donut of the Heart!!!", on January 9, 2012.[32] The song samples J Dilla's "Time: The Donut of the Heart". It was followed up by a series of singles, including a cover of Max B's "Quarantine", and original songs "My Worst Song Yet" and "Justin Bieber!!!!!".[33] Kitty's breakout fourth single, "Okay Cupid", was released on April 11, 2012.[34] The music video, released the following month, went viral on YouTube, causing the song to become an internet sensation.[35] "Okay Cupid" served as the sole single from Kitty's debut solo EP, Haha, I'm Sorryreleased on June 11, 2012. The EP features guest vocals from fellow rappers Riff Raff and Dankte.[36] The final track, "Give Me Scabies", samples vocals from Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe", and saxophone from Kenny G's "Sentimental".[37][38] A music video for the Riff Raff collaboration "Orion's Belt" was released on June 18, 2012, through the Noisey YouTube channel.[39]

On August 1, 2012, Kitty released a new song titled "Hittin Lix".[40] The single preceded the EP D.A.I.S.Y. Rage, which was released on January 31, 2013.[41] It was premiered by Rolling Stone, whom Kitty told, "I exist in the real world now. It's going to be nice because people won't be able to just say that I'm a meme anymore."[42] The EP saw Kitty take her music in a more serious direction. Unlike earlier releases, the tracks were recorded in a studio.[43] The second and final single from the EP, "Ay Shawty 3.0", was released on June 18, 2013.[44] An accompanying music video was uploaded to YouTube the following day.[45] The track features rapper Lakutis, and is a reworking of "Ay Shawty: The Shrekoning!!!!" from Haha, I'm Sorry. D.A.I.S.Y Rage was Kitty's first release under her mononymous stage name, rather than Kitty Pryde. She had chosen the name "Kitty Pryde" as a reference to the Marvel superhero but dropped the "Pryde" because of displeased Marvel fans.[42]

2013–2015: Impatiens, Don't Let Me Do This Again and Frostbite[edit]

On June 17, 2013, Kitty released a song titled "Barbie Jeep" as part of the Adult Swim Singles Program.[46] The song was later removed from the Adult Swim website, after Kitty was sued for using lyrics similar to those by another band.[47] On November 8, 2013, Kitty shared the track "Second Life" via SoundCloud. It was intended to promote her debut albumto be titled Flowerviolence—which was reportedly near completion at the time.[48] The album was scheduled for release in the winter of 2013–2014, but was delayed. A second track from the album, "285", was leaked by Kitty on February 6, 2014. The song is about the closing of the Brooklyn underground music venue 285 Kent.[49][50]

On May 13, 2014, Kitty released an EP titled Impatiens, named for the impatiens genus of flowers. The EP consists of 4 new songs and, as bonus tracks, the previously released singles "Second Life" and "Barbie Jeep". This version of "Barbie Jeep" is a new mix, stylized as "Barbie J33p".[51] Kitty made visual components for each of the 4 new tracks.[52] She shared these videos via Tumblr on the day of the EP's release. An official music video was made for "BrB ( ˘ ³˘)❤"; the first music video directed by Kitty herself.[53] An outtake from the EP, "Marijuana", was released as a single on June 18, 2014,[54] and the accompanying music video was released on June 30.[55] The song samples "Marijuana" by Chrome Sparks, which, in turn, samples "Could Heaven Ever Be Like This" by Idris Muhammad.[56][57]

Kitty recorded a series of covers one night while "drunk in [her] room alone", and released them on June 27, 2014, as an EP titled Don't Let Me Do This Again.[58]

On November 10, 2014, Kitty shared the song "Miss U" from her upcoming album.[59] The album's working title, Flowerviolence, was abandoned by Kitty when Lana Del Rey released her similarly titled album Ultraviolence.[60] It had originally been promoted as Kitty's debut album,[61][62] but materialized as a 5-track EP. The EP, renamed Frostbite, was released on November 18, 2014. It includes the pre-singles "Second Life", "285", and "Miss U".[63] For the EP, Kitty experimented with trance and electro music, as she had gotten "over hip-hop". According to Kitty, she felt embarrassed of her earlier music, and was finally making songs she was proud of. Two of the songs sample remixes of My Little Pony songs.[64] Frostbite reached number 6 on the iTunes album chart.[65] A music video for "Second Life" was released on December 17, 2014.[66] On March 9, 2015, Kitty released Frostbite: The Remixes; an EP of remixed tracks from Frostbite.[67]
