CupcakKe, real name – Elizabeth Eden Harris, is an American online philanthropist, rapper, songwriter, and singer, who is best known for her sexually-charged singles.
She was born on May 31, 1997, in Chicago, Illinois, USA.
Harris was raised by a single mother.
She started to write poetry at 3 years old. At age 13, Elizabeth began rapping. At the age of 14, Eden began writing religious-themed poetry as well as she started to perform in local churches.
”I was doing poetry, I was doing Christian poetry in a church around three years and then at 13, 14, one of those ages, and then someone said, ‘Hey, turn your poetry into rap,’ and that’s what I did.”
The artist decided to write sexually explicit material in late 2015. Her first videos “Vagina” and “Deepthroat” were inspired by Khia’s hit “My Neck, My Back.”
During an interview, Harris confessed:
”I released “Vagina,” and it was my first freaky, sexual song. I was basically in my room, listening to Khia’s “My Neck My Back,” and I was horny as hell at the time.”
Eden went on to say:
”And I was like, this is the perfect time to write. So I wrote it and when I put it out, the response was insane.”
In June 2016, she released her 2nd mixtape, called ”S.T.D (Shelters to Deltas).”
In October 2016, Elizabeth released her debut studio album, named – ”Audacious.”
On March 31, 2017, the singer released her second studio album, – ”Queen Elizabitch.”
On January 5, 2018, she released her third studio album, titled – ”Ephorize.” The album uses 15 technicolored tracks to tackle sexist double standards, self-esteem issues, and naysayers.
Interestingly, ”Ephorize” doesn’t include a single guest spot. She said:
“A lot of artists nowadays put these features on their albums either because they can’t hold the weight of their own album.”
“I wanted the fans to listen to no one’s story but my story.”
On November 9, 2018, she released her 4th studio album, called – ”Eden.” The closing track on the album, entitled – “A.U.T.I.S.M.,” was written as a way to make her autistic fans feel “welcome and accepted.”
In her words:
“With ‘A.U.T.I.S.M.’ I [wanted] something special that can hit home for people who are dealing with autism.”
On April 17, 2019, the American musician released a remix of Lil Nas X’s song “Old Town Road” named “Old Town Hoe.”
She released the single “Lemon Pepper in June 2020.
Harris started her YouTube channel on August 4, 2012. Her popular channel features music videos for her original singles. Currently, she has over 595,000 subscribers.
CupcakKe is probably single right now, but at the start of 2019, she detailed about a man she dated for 5 months. Elizabeth said that her ex-boyfriend drove her to the edge with financial and emotional abuse.
“Out of the kindness of my heart, I gave this man over [$30,000] during this period [of] time because I understand how it feels to be without.”
Eden later added:
”He also has threatened to shoot my mom in the face [and] has threatened me on multiple occasions [and] said he can do it because he will get away with it!”

”Nothing’s holding me back. If I’m held back, the only thing holding me back was me.”
”When women see another confident female they feel, you know, they love another confident woman.”
”I think everything that played a part in my life growing up is in my music.”
“When an artist puts out music, the fans are providing. That’s how I look at it.”
“I never knew what a ‘mention’ was and just checked my notifications, and I saw five people in a row saying ‘Queen! Queen! Queen!’”
”I don’t like to be boring or write boring shit, so I keep my Twitter spiced up, crazy, and fun.”
“As soon as I decided to do something [that wasn’t] being done at the moment and started writing sexual music, it just went viral.”
”I never get comfortable. I never get comfortable. All I do is write.”
”I’m sure the people of Yale know exactly what they booked me for and what was the reason for it.”
