Cakes Da Killa - 2014 - Hunger Pangs

Cakes Da Killa is an underground rapper from New York City, New York, USA. Hunger Pangs is his third mixtape. The mixtape features production from Wildkatz, SXYLK, Joe Lalich, LSDXOXO, Poisonous Relationship and Hanz Kurkyl with guest vocals from Terry Lovette. It is easy to lump Cakes in with the wave of queer rappers like Le1f or Mykki Blanco but first and foremost Cakes is a lyrical monster. He brings it hard and fast on every single track. Last year's mixtape The Eulogy raised both the stakes and the expectations and Cakes Da Killah does nothing but bring the fire for almost a half hour straight. If you're into hip hop or rap in any capacity, Cakes Da Killa's Hunger Pangs is essential listening.
