Ferocious Chicago rapper CupcakKe has announced ONE lone Florida date for 2018 and luckily for every citizen of the City Beautiful, it's happening here. Her twin 2016 mixtapes, Cum Cake and STD (Shelters to Deltas), were both lauded by Rolling Stone as "Best Rap Albums of 2016," and she just released new album Ephorize. Few can combine over the top sex-rap and vulnerable introspection so well.

Cupcakke plays the Soundbar (formerly Backbooth) - and THAT'S IT for Florida - on Thursday March 1, at 7 p.m. Tickets start at $20.
