CupcakKe’s most recent album, Eden—the follow-up to Ephorize, released months prior—was issued in 2018. Her 2019 singles included “Bird Box,” “Ayesha,” and “Old Town Hoe,” her spin on Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road.”

CupcakKe shares new track ‘Lemon Pepper’ to benefit Minnesota Freedom Fund

Written by Will Richards


CupcakKe has shared a new track to benefit the Minnesota Freedom Fund. 
‘Lemon Pepper’ is the rapper’s second new track of 2020, and half the proceeds from the song will go to raising money for bail funds following the death of George Floyd. 

CupcakKe was among a host of musicians and celebrities to support a new fund to assist protestors following Floyd’s death. Floyd, 46, died in Minneapolis late last Monday (May 25) following an altercation with police officers. 

Floyd, who was African American, was killed when a white police officer appeared to kneel on his neck as he lay on the ground during an arrest.
Listen to ‘Lemon Pepper’ below.


Last September, CupcakKe announced her intention to quit music, saying she felt like she was “corrupting the youth”. 

“I have people of all ages – 10, 11 years old – coming to my shows and I feel as though I’m corrupting them with my songs,” she said. “And I don’t wanna do it no more.”

CupcakKe Releases a Double Music Video for ‘Grilling N****s’ & ‘Lawd Jesus’

Written by 

CupcakKe is back and better than ever. She released a double music video of her singles “Grilling Niggas” and “Lawd Jesus” over the past week and got fans fully invigorated. The production is the best she’s ever displayed in any of her other music videos, and you can tell from the production it was produced during quarantine with the poolside and at home shots. Still, the Chicago rapper is giving you fierce and fab with a dash of spice in the “Grilling Niggas” video where she can be seen playing golf on a white man’s face and grilling steaks in her backyard. In “Lawd Jesus,” she can be seen wearing a more glamorous look while spitting bars.



Recently, the rapper spoke about how she doesn’t want to be perceived as sexual as she did in her past on Instagram live. On video she talked about how she felt like she had to say outlandish things just to get people to listen to her music, even though it was the opposite of her personality. Later, she hinted at the discrepancy in Black women’s actions versus white women’s actions because of misogynoir when she said “why the white person don’t gotta do that? You know what I’m saying? Like, why the white person don’t gotta get online and put a dick in her ass, you know, suck a dick just for muthafuckas to start listening to their music?”

The double music video for “Grilling Niggas/Lawd Jesus” is out now on Youtube, which can be seen above. You can also stream or purchase both singles on all online music platforms.
