Pleasantly shaping his own grounds to walk on, Cakes Da Killa is a young Rap entertainer heavily influenced by Hip-Hop’s greatest contenders who once regulated New York City’s music scene in the 1990s. Without a doubt, Cakes Da Killa incarnates a preeminence that reminds us of just how many words a rap song used to have before the unmanageable rise of trap music in the early 2000s.
Beyond the cute post-production and snappy lyrics in the video below, the artist has a deeper meaning for what he chooses to express creatively and visually. When enlightening us about what inspired him or influenced the treatment for “Goodie Goodies” in an interview with Buzzfeed, happily, Harlem Renaissance writer and painter Richard Bruce Nugent was the one to credit.
Much like Cakes Da Killa, Nugent was from New Jersey and had a way with words. Joyously, we find this reference to be admirable. If this is your first time encountering Cakes Da Killa, we’ d recommend that you lick the salt before drinking the tequila.
Now that you’ve watched Goodie Goodies, listen to the lyrically adored 12-track The Eulogy released on Mishka Records and let us know what you think:
