Chicago rapper Queen Key aims to empower women and challenge hip-hop gender norms with her wildly funny and sexually explicit rhymes.

Queen grew up in suburban Chicago and parts of Indiana. From an early age, she told everyone she was going to be famous.

She made her first mixtape at age seven and later adopted the name Baby Niko. Around 2015, she dubbed herself Queen Key and began taking music seriously.

“Baked as a Pie,” one of the first songs she recorded as Queen Key, became a local hit.

In 2018, she released her debut EP, Eat My P***y, which featues Tink, King Louie, and Dreezy. The single “My Way” became a massive streaming hit.

The follow up, naturally titled Eat My P***y Again, arrived in 2019.

In 2020, she released a remix of Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP.”
