Rapper CupcakKe Opens Up About Struggle With Depression — And Receives Support From Missy Elliott: ‘Don’t Give Up’

CupcakKe is known for being silly, sexy and, uninhibited (case in point: her NSFW 2015 hit “Vagina”), but the 21-year-old Chicago rapper is coming forward to reveal she’s not always as carefree as she may appear.

In a series of tweets she issued Thursday, CupcakKe (whose real name is Elizabeth Harris) revealed that she suffers from bouts of depression and is currently at a particularly low point.

While her fans offered support and consolation, so did rap icon Missy Elliott, who sent her an inspirational tweet, advising CupcakKe to not “give up pushing so you can help others.”

Elliott followed up with a second tweet, reminding her that there are “many people going through the same feelings… you are not alone.”
