Fueled by his flair for fashion and music, Kupid entered the scene of Hip-Hop in 2020, at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. A senior at Loyola University in New Orleans, Kupid soars above most hip-hop artists of his generation. From the age of 4, his love for music began, centering around mastering the acoustic guitar, and playing the keyboard by ear. After that, his affinity for playing instruments took flight. He has played the electric guitar and struck many a beat on the full drum set in middle school. After that, Kupid’s arrow fell front and center on the drumline in high school. It was during this time that his love for rap music materialized.

Kupid entered college with the intent to focus on Music Production, but changed course along the way, acknowledging his preference for taking center stage. Targeting a 2024 graduation with a Bachelor of Science in Music Industry Studies, he is an accomplished artist and musician, exuding fashion finesse.

Initially releasing under the moniker “Drew$kii” Kupid dropped his first EP “Ultraviolet” in 2021 and extended his reach via collaborations with various other industry artists. Since then, he has rebranded his persona and is known to the world of Hip-Hop as “Kupid”. His most recent and notable collabs include: “Dreads Hang” on “4 The Culture Vol. 1: Maroon Edition” album released in 2023 by Loyola New Orleans’ Hip-Hop and R&B cohort. 

Kupid has now aimed his target at releasing his debut single “OK Wait”, which is part of a larger project.

Born Andrew but known as “Drew” Carnakie-Baker in Lawrenceville, Georgia, Kupid spent every summer and holiday season visiting extended family in New York City. This is probably why his fans might hear a mixture of “The South meets Northen exposure” in lyrical experiences told through rap.

Fun Fact: While marching to the beat of his own drums in high school Kupid winged becoming a County Qualifier twice and a State Qualifier once in breaststroke representing his school’s swim team.

Kupid's latest release, "Shot To Da Head", is a high energy, moshpit-esque track highlighting the ups and downs of partaking in relationships with a significant other. Check it out now and follow him on social media for his new music.
