A few weeks ago, Florida’s Kitty Pryde — everyone’s favorite red-haired teen-girl rapper — stopped by Brighton Music Hall for her much-anticipated first Boston show. Her energetic set had dozens of teens screaming along in the front, and it even brought out some key members of the Kitty Committee, her Internet-based group of super-fans. Pryde — who entered the rap game earlier this year after a series of viral videos and MP3s caught the attention of producer Beautiful Lou — lived up to the hype, flowing effortlessly through hits like “Okay Cupid” and “Orion’s Belt.”

“I’m not really interested in hittin’ the tip top / And I got you mad, but you watchin’,” she sang on crowd-pleaser “Smiledog.jpg.” “You say this little white girl is ruinin’ hip-hop / I say damn right, take a lick o’ the ring pop.” In her typical “fuck the rules” manner, she even jumped off the stage to vibe face-to-face with her fans.
Aside from Kitty Pryde’s music, we also love her distinct aesthetic: her bubblegum-pink, glittery Tumblr, her album art made of notebook doodles, and, of course, her sense of style. So before her show, the Phoenix met up with Kitty and her entourage — a/k/a her little bro and her mom — to hit some of Allston’s secondhand clothing stores. “People are always asking me what brands I like,” Kitty told me as we flipped through racks of skirts in Urban Renewals on Brighton Ave. “But these are the kinds of places I shop at when I’m at home.”
