GRAMMY-nominated multi-hyphenate rapper, singer, songwriter and poet Tierra Whack has made her musical return with her new EP, Rap? over the weekend. The EP is the long-awaited follow-up to her groundbreaking 2018 project, Whack World and arrives a few weeks after her recent “Walk The Beat” single. Rap? keeps it concise and includes just three tracks. Right from the very first bars on the intro track “Stand Up,” Tierra bursts in with confidence:
Oh, will the real n***a please stand and all the fake sit down? Let me fix my crown/ Mm, Big Whack ’cause I eat a lot, bitches always beggin’ ’cause they need a lot/ Car came with instructions, I don’t read a lot
I come from the bottom, gotta feed the block, mm, I don’t need a chair, always come prepared/ I am like the mayor, I am not the mayor, gotta say a prayer ‘fore I leave the house/ Coat hangin’ off my shoulder, gotta see thе blouse, mm
Back in 2018, Tierra Whack shocked the world with her official debut Whack World, a conceptual release with 15 one-minute songs that came with a matching short film. That project quickly rose to become a well-received body of work that set the tone for her successful career. The following year, she then joined the likes of Blueface, DaBaby, Megan Thee Stallion, Roddy Ricch, (YBN) Cordae, Rico Nasty, and Gunna as the latest inductee into XXL’s Freshman class.
Since then, Whack has released an album’s worth of loose cuts to the masses, including “Only Child,” “Clones,” “Gloria,” “Wasteland,” “Dora,” “Peppers and Onions,” and “Unemployed” — she also provided show-stealing verses on tracks like Alicia Keys’ “Me x 7” and Lil Yachty’s “T.D.” Also recently, she revealed a spaced-out visual for the well-received “Link” and showed support for her hometown NBA team with “76.”
