The 23 year old from Philadelphia has a very unique approach to rap as a female. Most female rappers that are on the charts right now are within the same vein of each other, except Whack, she runs along more of the side that has been dominated been predominantly men since the beginning.

In February, she dropped 'CLONES', a song about her style being copied now and how she's just trying to be herself and staying out of the limelight. However, at the same time, she recently revealed that Apple Music has taken her on as the subject of a documentary that came out in February. Other artists like 6LACK, Khalid, and Juice WRLD have also been featured in the series of the documentaries as well.

A misplaced Grammy nomination meets classic blaxploitation as hip-hop's rising star recalls the watershed period in her journey to self-discovery.

Right now, Tierra is part of the possible candidates for the XXL Freshman class which is notorious for giving multiple artists a bigger platform to promote themselves and be seen by the "main-stream" listeners. Popular artists like Playboi Carti, Aminé, and Kyle were all members of the 2017 Freshman class.

It is apparent that Whack is getting the platform she deserves, but what makes her so deserving of it?

In one of my favorite songs by her, "Shit Happens", she addresses the idea that if she dies young, to remind everyone that she lived life well and doesn't hold any regrets. There is also a very apparent message of feeling lost "not making it home" which is a feeling I believe a lot people in college and even young adulthood struggle with.

With Tierra Whack coming out with five singles this year, hopefully, we can expect another album from her soon. Until then, explore more of her music here.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month.
