Over drill-like beats and club-ready throbs, Cakes delivers his clever verses with breathless intensity, bragging about “getting thirst traps all up on my iPhone”, and challenging anyone to match his fire power: “Name another bitch who can make it hot like this!” You’ll be able to think of a couple – Mykki for one – but you wouldn’t dare say it to his face.
