Cakes da Killa: 'I Don't Think Rap Should Have Limitations'

The Englewood rapper talks hip hop and the LGBT community.

Published June 4, 2015

Cakes da Killa has a lot to say about hip hop, LGBT issues and a long list of other topics, and he isn't afraid to speak up. The Englewood, N.J., rapper sat down with us to share his views in honor of LGBT Pride Month.

Unlike most of us, Cakes didn't suffer from bullying and low self-esteem growing up. He tells us that he was raised to be confident and, as a result, never let haters bring him down. "I think that's something that really comes from the inside, once you realize you only have one life to live," he says of where he locates his confidence.


The MC also shares his views on the corporatization of hip hop, but adds that the genre should be open to all — even Iggy Azalea. "Hip hop is a way to express yourself. It's a way to get your point across in the vernacular of the youth," he says. "I don't think rap should have limitations."
