CupcakKe – Net Worth, Biography, Songs, Retirement

CupcakKe, real name – Elizabeth Eden Harris, is an American online philanthropist, rapper, songwriter, and singer, who is best known for her sexually-charged singles.

Biography

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.

She explained:

”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.”

Harris continued:

“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.”

Retirement

In September 2019, Harris announced that she was retiring from the music industry, leaving social media (she deleted all her Instagram posts) and removing her music from all streaming platforms.

She said:

“Recently, I have just been sporadic. It’s because I wanted to get as much attention as possible to let y’all know that I will no longer be doing music.”

Harris also said:

“I have people of all ages – 10, 11 years old – coming to my shows and I feel as though I’m corrupting them with my songs.”

YouTube

Harris started her YouTube channel on August 4, 2012. Her popular channel features music videos for her original singles. Currently, she has over 538,000 subscribers. However, all of her videos were deleted.

Boyfriend

She 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.

Harris detailed:

“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!”
