Following a year of releasing one-offs and loose singles, Tierra Whack has reemerged with a glimpse at what may be to come.
Today, the Philly rapper dropped Rap?, a surprise EP marking her first collection of music since the release of her breakout debut album, Whack World, in 2018. The abbreviated set features just three songs but contains all of her hallmark quirks and trimmings. “Stand Up” opens the sequence with a muscular and declarative call to arms. “Meagan Good” celebrates the pride of remaining happily independent and mints a new standard for success. And “Millions” closes the project with a soul-looping anthem.
Rap? arrives on the heels of four standalone singles stretching back to the beginning of last year and is accompanied by a regal audiovisual treatment for “Stand Up” (see below.) The rapper is also set to close out a string of fall tour dates with three performances this month. You can catch her tonight at Elsewhere in Brooklyn, next Friday, December 10th, at the Masonic Lodge in Los Angeles, and on December 17th at the House of Vans in Chicago.
