Tierra Whack's new 3-song EP 'Rap?' is a less-is-more gem
One of music’s most exciting new innovators keeps writing her own story.
She’s still very much writing her own story, though, as evidenced by the heartfelt narrative “Megan Good.” In under three minutes, the rapper formerly named Dizzle Dizz recites an Emmy-worthy, Lifetime movie of a memoir, reminiscing on the days when “we had nothin’ and had dreams of gettin’ money.”
Of course, with projects like her 2018 debut,Whack World, Tierra helped usher in the under-one-minute song format, which is still shaking up the industry, changing our perceptions of what an album even is in the app-only era. And while this brief, impressive project contains longer songs—the only regret is it’s not even longer—it still suggests Tierra’s loyalty to the “less is more” rule.
“Millions” is an upbeat case study on what it means to be grateful. It also boasts some artful snark for good measure. Over J. Melodic’s piano-driven soul wheeze, Tierra brags, “Tape been done, all play, no skips/Walk-in closet, I could do three flips/I’ma do ’em nasty like sugar and grits.” This smart MC is also a smart ass. headtopics.comRead more: Rolling Stone »
