Cakes Da Killa (US)
Saturday 22.45 @ Hvit, Driv
Cakes Da Killa (24) is “one of hip hop’s most exciting voices,” (The Needle Drop) who “sounds like he will absolutely slap your face off” (Stereogum). Praise has also come from the likes of Vice and MTV.
Cakes Da Killa’s sound is a mix of various musical influences, cinema and underground experiences. Praised for his lyrical content and flow, which has earned him comparisons to Lil Kim and Foxy Brown, Cakes now has 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 that statement with each new release he drops.
