Elizabeth Eden Harris (born May 31, 1997), known as “CupcakKe”, is a rapper and songwriter born and raised in Chicago. Elizabeth began rapping at the age of 14, starting off doing church poetry, she received the nickname “CupcakKe’‘ and she later began to rap. First song “Gold Digger’’ went viral on internet in 2012. Songs as ‘’Money’’ (2012) , and ‘’Yo Lost’’ (2014) gained attention. In 2015 she broke the internet with her sexually charged anthems “Vagina” and “Deepthroat’’ and in February 2016 she released her first album entitled “Cum Cake”.
“People were thinking, ‘She’s so vulgar. She’s bold. We’re going to get a mixtape that’s nasty.’ And then they come to find out there are only three songs on the mixtape that are [explicit],” said CupcakKe for Columbus Alive about the album. “Cum Cake” gained attention of music publications such as Complex and Paper Magazine, which premiered the single “Pedophile”, where she details the story of being a minor who was involved in a relationship with an older man.
In June 2016, CupcakKe announced her second album entitled “S.T.D” which was considered one of the Best Rap Album of 2016 by Rolling Stone Magazine. The same month, The Fader Magazine commented about CupcakKe being one of the 21 rappers to feel excited about. Pitchfork commented CupcakKe’s career thus far may be defined by her ability to turn out great raunchy anthems, but she is capable of so much more.
Writing is … my friend. It’s family. I know it’s just words, but it’s something close to me. That’s how I look at it. — CupcakKe
New York based 20-year-old producer umru appeared almost out of nowhere in the pop music world with his first production credit on Charli XCX’s landmark 2017 mixtape ‘Pop 2’, being recruited at 18 by PC Music founder A. G. Cook to co-produce one of the mixtape’s highlight tracks, ‘I Got It’. The release quickly brought umru from a high school and the Soundcloud beat scene to DJ sets at Charli XCX’s tour afterparties across the US and Europe and collaborations with some of pop music’s most experimental and forward-thinking acts. The release of his debut EP ‘search result’ on PC Music revealed his ability to merge his intense, bass-heavy production with both catchy and melancholy performances from a talented lineup of underground pop vocalists including Banoffee and Lewis Grant. The EP was followed by three sold out ‘search party’ events across the US. umru’s music has been heard on BBC Radio 1 and Beats 1 Radio and featured on Billboard, Paper Magazine and Hypebeast, his style being described as “boundary-pushing” and “insanely addictive.”
