Appetite for Destruction: kitty pryde & Major Lazer - "dead island" (D.A.I.S.Y. EP)
"It's some random butt-head who told me if I wanted to use his song, I'd have to rip it off Soundcloud myself, so I did..." kitty pryde exclaimed when one of her trusty Twitter Followers asked who produced her #BRANDNEW track. "Dead Island" is pryde's latest stand-alone release, which pulls a sampled drum lick from "Pon de Floor" (Major Lazer) and also has a pretty iced-out STEAMCLAM-directed music video to go along with it. kitty pryde's a Daytona Beach, FL 20-something[?] who's currently prepping the release of her new EP, D.A.I.S.Y. Rage, that should be out online later this month. kitty pryde's cadence and rapping skills seem to have seriously improved since she unleashed haha, i'm sorry.
But let's face it, kitty pryde's just a goofy/socially awkward/love-struck teenager who simply raps about what she knows best... she won't be on the same level as Missy Elliott or Jay-Z any time soon, but that kind of lyrical wordplay just takes sheer time and life experience to conjure up. I bet I, or any of us really, would've rapped about pointless high school shit as well, if we had that level of Rap superstar-dom @ that tender, awkward age. Right!? kitty pryde supposedly laid down a few verses for Danny Brown and LE1F's upcoming projects, too. I'm almost expecting her 2 recent Bandcamp Loosies, "how 2 b a heartbreaker???" (Remix) and "hittin' lix" to re-appear in some sort of altered form on D.A.I.S.Y. Rage EP.
