Tierra Whack recently made the most of her overseas trip by hitting up Tim Westwood TV for a freestyle. Dubbing her as one of the best “female emcees,” (though not why stick with emcees?) Westwood queued up a classic instrumental with Timbaland and Fatman Scoop’s “Drop.”
“Hot girl with some ice in my cup, put a knife in your gut, your team fake, they be spicing you up,” raps Whack. “Peroxide bitch I stay in the cut, if I ever send shots I’ma aim at your butt.” As the Timbo classic continues, Whack’s flow picks up steam; is there a case to be made that she’s the game’s secret weapon? Really, how many artists are really out here flowing like Tierra Whack? She continues to weave a rich tapestry of bars, spitting “you love drama, I love being black in Benihana, swag on Michelle Obama book a trip to Ghana.”
At this point, we’re still feeding off her recent string of drops, with both “Wasteland” and “Unemployment” standing as some of Whack’s strongest work to date. If she can pick up with the same momentum, perhaps Tierra Whack’s Whack World follow-up will stand as one of the year’s strongest releases thus far. What do you think of Tierra?
