This is a spam profile which just seems to be for reposting a playlist by keeganthedeadbeat.

It has a track posted to make it look more real:
https://soundcloud.com/nicohof1/emptyinside
A simple googling of the lyrics found the track is actually this:
https://soundcloud.com/crystaljoilena/love-is-a-downfall

Now, with SoundCloud's absurd copyright reporting system I can't report this because I'm not the original artist or the rights holder/manager. However, if I was a teenage rapper I could make a fake copyright claim against a rival and, with SoundCloud's absurd copyright reporting system, it looks like in 99% of cases they can't do anything about it. So should I make a fake copyright claim about this?

Here's another:

This one has two tracks posted but they are obviously by different artists:
https://soundcloud.com/juliamikhail/tracks
A simple googling of the lyrics found one is a song called "Domestic Goddess Blues" by Beth Williams which can be heard here:
http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_music.cfm?bandID=949237 and the other is yet another cover of Bonnie Raitt's "I Can't Make You Love Me" but there aren't enough hours in the day to find exactly which one has been stolen.

There are lots of others where I haven't yet found the original, but they all have a single track. Sometimes there's a male vocal even though the picture is a woman, and they usually have a strange or completely wrong tag like #lady, #amazing, #lyric, or #acoustic for a track that is electronic.

Most have either "Took forever to sing this right for me..." or "hope this song is pleasant to everyone" in the track description so you can find them by searching those:
https://soundcloud.com/search?q=Took%20forever%20to%20sing%20this%20right%20for%20me...
https://soundcloud.com/search?q=hope%20this%20song%20is%20pleasant%20to%20everyone

and they are all reposting tracks by keeganthedeadbeat and sometimes his other profile Ern3gon
