tierra whack is calling out ‘clones’
February 27, 2019
Tierra Whack is the artist that keeps on giving and she has saved another week in this bad (bad as in bad, not bad as in good) Black History Month from ruin by releasing her latest song “Clones” that’s probably about exactly what you think it is about. The song is in Whack’s now signature slinky, minimal, abstract style but on “Clones”, it’s trap. The song is paired with visuals of chattering dentures which feels like both a diss to her competition — y’all all out here running your mouths and being copycats while I’m putting in work — and a good excuse to remind us that Tierra Whack is a visual experience just as much as sonic.
Whack has seized our ears and eyes ever since the release of her audio-visual-social media takeover in 2018, Whack World. It’s looking like she does not plan on slowing down anytime soon and her clones are not competition, but just another excuse to make another bad (not bad as in bad, but bad as in good) ass song.
