Ephorize (Self-released)

At just twenty years old, über sex-positive, body-positive Chicago-based rapper CupcakKe (born Elizabeth Eden Harris) has garnered a massive and incredibly loyal LGBT fan base seemingly overnight. Although she began releasing music back in 2012, it wasn’t until the viral success of her raunchy (and at times absolutely hilarious) videos for songs such as “Deepthroat”, “Doggy Style” and “Juicy Coochie” that she became a household name on the internet. However, CupcakKe’s music goes well beyond titillation; she also tackles more serious subjects such as racial injustice, police brutality, and poverty (not to mention a variety of other challenging topics). On Ephorize,her finest album to date, this blossoming rap diva brings all of these issues to the table and then some. It’s a can’t-miss for fans of Lil’ Kim, Foxy Brown and Khia. Follow CupcakKe on Facebook @CupcakKeRapper.

Here’s her latest, and be advised: the language is explicit.
