Music is an international language and a powerful tool that can either be used to bring people together or drive them apart. Last night, Chicago rapper CupcakKe demonstrated the former, drawing together a sold-out crowd in Toronto at the Mod Club as part of Canadian Music Week.
If you haven’t heard of CupcakKe, you will soon not be able to escape her. With the release of her latest album, Ephorize, the fearless rapper has proven that she is more than her clever and raunchy one-lines; she has embodied the voice of a generation by rapping explicitly and opening about LGBTQ issues, self-esteem, and a woman’s carnal desires (which, for some reason, is still noteworthy when openly discussed).
The crowd in Toronto last night was racially and sexually diverse and fired-up to the nth degree while CupcakKe performed for her “slurpers” (the term the rapper lovingly calls her fans).
The rapper’s set lasted about one hour, and she performed a selection of songs from her last few albums including “Vagina” (Cum Cake, 2016), “LGBT” (Audacious, 2016), “Spider-Man Dick” (Audacious, 2016), “Duck Duck Goose” (Ephorize, 2018), and closed with a fan-demanded performance of “Deepthroat” (Cum Cake, 2016).
Her stage presence alone brought an energy to the packed venue that seemed to cause everyone’s vibe to elevate and almost forced you to move and chant along. And as fans poured out of the venue it was obvious from their expressions – verbal and facial – that CupcakKe left everyone feeling deeply satisfied.
