She says everything that comes from her “fat cat”. And she says it clearly, rejecting euphemisms and defying social conventions, no mincing of words as she amazes, shocks and makes the fainthearted blush. Even the most cocky and vulgar macho rapper is thrown by her. When cupcakKe unleashes her tongue, run for cover.  She is brutal; she is raunchy and incorrect to the point of embarrassment. She is also quick, sharp and witty, because what Elizabeth Harris (real name of this Chicago rapper) does, does not only have value because she can find a thousand and one synonyms for her genitals (the most recurring and hilarious one is Garfield). cupcakKe is one of the best things that has happened to contemporary hip-hop, in her hyperactive craziness she released two stunning albums in 2018: Ephorize and Eden. They are as funny, as convincing and as full of ideas as Miss Elliot’s hey day albums. Although compared to her, Missy was a goody two shoes. And Lil’ Kim was a nun. And no, we are not exaggerating because… there’s no need: cupcakKe is an exaggeration herself.
