cupcakKe - Discounts: Unapologetically Brutal

For a long time, cupcakKe has not been viewed as a viable rapper. This popular opinion branched from her raunchy and very much tongue-in-cheek music: "Juicy Coochie," among many other explicit titles and LP's. For these reasons, she has accumulated accolades from various social media presences as a comical and tongue-in-cheek rapper. 
Most recently, however, she caught the attention of those who considered her a one-dimensional rapper — including me. As with countless others, after listening to cupcakKe's debut songs, I instantaneously placed her in a droll category of mediocrity and thought nothing more of her as a musician.
With the release of her new song, Discounts, as aforementioned, she has captured the attention of all her doubters —haters, rather. Discounts, from my observations of her earlier music, is a paradigm shift from one-dimensional, raunchy music to a beat-heavy, well-versed song — to say the least. Discount's beat, at first, seems to come off as an overwhelmingly overused beat. It transcends almost instantly, however, into a much more evolved multi-layered tone. Discounts is unapologetically crude and nasty — in a good way. She bangs on the wall of sanity with lyrics such as, "[t]his b**** didn't wax my eyebrows right, went out with a bang, b****." As psychotic as it may seem, it works. The entirety of the song is laden with innuendos and witty statements that have reflected cupcakKe as an endearing, and certainly viable, mainstream female rapper. Certainly, at the very least, is deserving of the attention.
Whether or not you agree with her harsh lyricism, she is proving herself to be a quality rapper. With Discounts, cupcakKe has demonstrated herself capable of rap-songs comparable to that of the latter of mainstream female rappers: Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, Saweetie, Tierra Whack, Rico Nasty, etc. In fact, on her current track, she is creating a subcategory of the female rap game, whether you like it or not.
