Cakes Da Killa
"Africa's Out! is a great campaign that provides a voice for those that need to be heard. Being an African myself, it is important to also be one of the voices drumming up more noise, love, and awareness to promote equality around the continent. I believe that every single African deserves equal rights, equal opportunities, and equal dignity- free from discrimination."
Recording artist and raunchy rapper Cakes Da Killa is a 23-year-old with three critically-acclaimed mixtapes to his name. His latest release Hunger Pangs solidified him as “one of hip hop’s most exciting voices,” according to The Needle Drop and a ferocious rapper who “sounds like he will absolutely slap your face off” in the words of Stereogum. No small feat, as this intensity has also garnered him praise from the likes of Vice, MTV and The Fader. Cakes Da Killa’s unique sound is a mix of various musical influences, cinema and underground experiences.
Praised for both his lyrical content and flow, which has earned him comparisons to Lil Kim and Foxy Brown, Cakes now has over 7,000 Soundcloud followers and over 8000 Facebook fans, as well as an international following that's brought him to places around Europe, Canada and Australia, all the while shattering the preconceived notions of what it takes to be a respected lyricist. (Rightly) bragging that he can, “spit that shit to make a homophobe a hypocrite,” he continues to prove the statement true with each new release he knocks out.
