Tierra Whack

Brooklyn

GRAMMY-nominated lyricist and fast-rising superstar Tierra Whack is solidifying her position as a force to be reckoned with after her riveting release Whack World. Loaded with flavorful wordplay and boundless creativity, Whack netted her first GRAMMY nomination for her standout video, "Mumbo Jumbo." After being lauded for her lyrical bravery and masterful vision in 2018, the following year, Whack stormed back with five new tracks in five consecutive weeks as part of her acclaimed "Whack History Month." In June 2019, her stellar wordplay abilities earned her a coveted slot as an XXL Freshman. She also was featured on Apple's Up Next Program and, the following year, covered Teen Vogue's March 2020. Last year, Whack was in peak form lyrically, releasing three EPs. Aptly titled Pop?, Rap? and R&B?, Tierra skates effortlessly through different genres, flexing her overall sensibilities as a transformative artist.


Team, please see below and let me know if you have any changes to the bio? GRAMMY-nominated lyricist and fast-rising superstar Tierra Whack is solidifying her position as a force to be reckoned with after her riveting release Whack World. Loaded with flavorful wordplay and boundless creativity, Whack netted her first GRAMMY nomination for her standout video, "Mumbo Jumbo." Armed with a love for 90s hip-hop and a passion for poetry, the North Philly emcee eventually delved into rapping, holding her own amongst fellow Philadelphia rhymers and capturing the attention of local luminaries like Meek Mill and DJ Cosmic Kev. Her clever off the-dome wordplay and a barrage of freestyles (including the 90-second clap-back, "Colorblind") cemented her early fanbase, and in 2017, Tierra inked a deal with Interscope Records.


Her 15-track debut project Whack World continues to garner her critical acclaim. After being lauded for her lyrical bravery and masterful vision in 2018, the following year, Whack stormed back with five new tracks in five consecutive weeks as part of her acclaimed "Whack History Month." In June 2019, her stellar wordplay abilities earned her a coveted slot as an XXL Freshman. She also was featured on Apple's Up Next Program and the following year covered Teen Vogue's March 2020 issue. Subsequently, Whack partnered with Apple for a lighthearted commercial, which featured new songs "feel good" and "Peppers & Onions." That Spring, she teamed up with LEGO® for her video "Link." There, Whack sat down alongside Philadelphia children from ages 6-9 to build a myriad of objects out of LEGO® bricks to inspire her innovative video.


Last year, Whack was in peak form lyrically, releasing three EPs. Aptly titled Pop?, Rap? and R&B?, Tierra skates effortlessly through different genres, flexing her overall sensibilities as a transformative artist. Lauded for her innate creativity by The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, and more, Tierra now hopes to showcase her onstage prowess this summer at Adult Swim Festival and Primavera Sound. Tierra recently teamed up with Wilson to help kick off the 2022 WNBA season with her "Stand Up" from her 2021 Rap? EP. The tip-off video features renowned WNBA stars Liz Cambage, Sabrina Ionescu, Diana Taurasi, Candace Parker, Erica Wheeler, Amanda Zahui B, and Sophie Cunningham.
