Watch Tierra Whack spit straight fire in the UK for Tim Westwood
Even though Philly rap visionary Tierra Whack seems to have wrapped up her super engaging #WHACKHISTORYMONTH series — which blessed us with the infectious earworm “Only Child” and the hysterically macabre “Unemployed” video — we aren’t being made to wait terribly long for more fun from this brilliantly creative mind.
A recent visit to the UK found Whack on UK radio station Capital Xtra with DJ Tim Westwood, and she blasts through a two-minute freestyle that’ll leave you dizzy. “Imagine being named Whack and not being me,” she spits at the outset, and it only gets more captivating from there, with shoutouts to Michelle Obama, DJ Khaled, stylist Shirley Kurata and Japanese chain Benihana, as The Fader notes.
Tierra Whack’s next Philly gig is at the Made in America festival on August 31st and September 1st; tickets and more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
