CupcakKe Gives Prudent Financial Advice In “Barcodes” Video
CupcakKe is in the process of turning Queen Elizabitch into a visual album. The breakout rapper, who is gaining mainstream attention courtesy of her hilarious social media presence and killer features on tracks like Charli XCX’s “Lipgloss,” drops video number six from the project today (July 17) and it’s one of her best. She exudes star quality in a figure-hugging ensemble while educating fans on financial matters. Namely, that there should be no exchange of services until payment is received in full.
The 20-year-old revels in being outrageous (see her corncob-violating “CPR” video for proof), but this visual is a little more subdued despite the lyrical content. Could it be a sign that CupcakKe is willing to tone it down — just a little — as her audience grows? Time will tell, but I think she’s going to stay true to her outrageous vision. After all, it’s what makes her so much fun and sets her apart from the rest of the hip-hop crowd. That and the fact that she only releases bops. Watch the video for her latest up top.
