Cece Bke is an up-and-coming rapper who is quickly making a name for herself in the music industry. But her passion for music began long before she ever set foot in a recording studio. Cece’s love for music can be traced back to her parents, who exposed her to a wide range of musical genres and artists, including Tupac, 8ball & MJG, Craig Mack, and Eve. She listened intently, memorizing lyrics and reciting them back to her family members, even performing for them.
In high school, Cece would rap in the lunchroom with her friends, and even in choir class to avoid singing. She also began sharing videos of her rapping on social media, quickly gaining a following. Her style was different from most rappers her age, as she focused on real rap and connecting with her audience through relatable lyrics.
Cece’s desire to get into the studio was strong, but her mom made her wait until she turned 18. Her first-ever recorded song was “Chiraq” at a family friend’s basement. That night, she played the song on her iPod at least 100 times and couldn’t believe that it was her. She rapped with her phone propped up against the wall until she turned 18, then found the nearest recording studio and walked straight in.
Growing up on the west side of Chicago gave Cece the grit needed to convey the message that she and many others face growing up in similar surroundings. Her versatile style and sound resonate with her roots, which are reflected in her lyrics.
Cece’s passion for music is not just about making a name for herself in the industry; it’s also about being heard. She is not only a lyricist, but an empath who is determined to get her messages across. As a woman in a male-dominated industry, Cece believes that men like to think they dominate the music scene. However, with her unmatched energy and confidence, she is proving that women can also succeed.
The “Stacks” and “Dummies” rapper has accumulated over 100,000 views on her channel alone, and her career continues to grow. Cece Bke is building her career off of one thing: being heard. And with her determination and talent, the world is listening.
