Premiere: 'Free To Be' with Rapper Cakes Da Killa

"Ima be me, you should be you," asserts queer New York rapper Cakes Da Killa on his new LGBTQ anthem, "Free To Be." The liberated rap-pop track, produced by davOmakesbeats, packs a powerful message into two short minutes, as Cakes flies through lyrics about self-love, queer romance and gender acceptance.

"Accept me for my mind, not what's in my underwear," Cakes spits above energetic, bubbly production. "Here to make it clear, live life with no fears. How you're feeling in your head might not match what's down there."

With an addictive hook that repeats the ultimate LGBTQ chant, "Got me feeling so free to be," the queer emcee's latest arrives just in time for Pride month and offers a strong follow-up to his full-length album, Hedonism
