Only Child | Tierra Whack
I can’t recall at this moment when or how I had initially heard of Tierra Whack but I do know she was buzzing a lot last year when her debut album, Whack World was released. The album got a lot of indie love and appreciation and one of her videos for a song from that album was nominated for the recent Grammy Awards. The Philly rapper is back with new music and it’s dope. It’s definitely a different sound than a lot of the female rap out right now (even the ones not making as much mainstream noise) but that’s a good thing, in my opinion. There’s a nice mixture in the song of rapping and singing, which seems to be the formula for just about all artists lately. However, with Tierra, it definitely feels authentic and not trendy. I’m intrigued at what her next move will be. It hasn’t yet been a year since the album release so we may get a mixtape or EP soon.
