CupcakKe - LGBT

Once you click play, you will be greeted with a big smile from our LGBT+ queen CupcakKe in her fur boots. Like her usual viral rap videos, we have heavy beats, arresting lyrics and dazzling colors, but this time CupcakKe amazes us with smoke grenade of colors. We do not want to get smoked, but totally want her kind of smoke out.

You may be able to sense it from the song name, this upbeat tune is written in dedication to a huge part of her fans (Slurpers) and the LGBT+ community. CupcakKe is a female artist, she’s free. And she openly supports her fans to be free. 

Last month, according to BuzzFeed, one Twitter user hailed CupcakKe as the “queen of kindness, talent, and support.” People are loving her kind gesture towards her gay teen fan who got kicked out of his house because he was gay. 17-year-old Christian tweeted CupcakKe about his situation out of desperation and guess what? CupcakKe offered him a hotel, and made sure he was warm and safe. “The first thing that came to my mind was not that ‘this is a fan’, but this is someone who is in need,” CupcakKe said. “Someone that’s about to be homeless just like I was at 13 years old.”

Her career being a rapper all started from the $50 her mom gave her to book a studio session for CupcakKe. She made it real by exposing the financial hardship and physical abuse she suffered of her childhood, and pairing them up with heart and creativity.

This 19-year-old Chicagoan is caring, innovative and unstoppable. So far, she has been writing her own songs, directing her own videos, and managing herself as an artist. She got acclamations from Rolling Stone, and listed in Rolling Stone's June 2016 listing of the "Best Rap Albums of 2016 So Far,” as well as recognized by well-known music publications such as Pitchfork, Complex, and The Fader. She went viral by simply being herself. 

Her “LGBT” video has over 939,000 views on YouTube, make it a million in dedication to CupcakKe and the LGBT community she supports!

“The LGBT community is human and every human being deserves love and that’s what I’m here to spread at the end of the day.”
