Listen to Kitty Pryde’s remix of Carly Rae Jepsen’s ’Call Me Maybe.’
Upstart Florida rapper Kitty Pryde is no stranger to virality. She almost broke the internet in May with her “Okay Cupid” video and the deluge of opinions that followed. (You know what they say about opinions! Everybody poops! Wait… I did that wrong…) The self-appointed “rap game Taylor Swift” just released a new EP called haha i’m sorry, which features a remix of another viral star, Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.” We’re surprised she has the time to rap with her part-time job.
On her version “Give Me Scabies” (LOL), Kitty Pryde slows the beat waaaaaay down and rhymes about missing her dude with a bizarre smooth sax (that almost comes off as bagpipes) laid over the familiar hit. The 19-year-old rapper found fame on Tumblr, and in a few short months she’s hanging with the likes of rhymers such as Danny Brown and Riff Raff. Not bad for a girl peddling plastic jewelry in the mall.
We haven’t heard the reaction from Carly yet, but we’re pretty sure it’ll become one of her obsessions as soon as she hears it… if she’s into remixes that sound like a Robo-trip.
