Even though her career is still in its infancy, Tierra Whack has already reached a point where she’s gotten bored of rapping. The Whack World artist stepped back in the ring and returned to her hip-hop roots for her latest single “Unemployed.” The bristling track, which came about with some help from her mother, premiered as Zane Lowe’s World Record over at Beats 1 on Tuesday (March 19).
“Rap got boring to me for a long time so I just started singing more, but it was one of those days where I was home recording in Philly and I was just like, ‘Yo, can you give me the beat?'” the Philly resident explained of the tune’s origin. “Then it was just like just hitting and I was just like, ‘You know what? People think I can’t rap anymore.’ I’m like, ‘I’ve just got to rap. I’ve got to rap.'”
Whack History Month’s run of new music doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. “Unemployed” follows in the footsteps of “Only Child,” “Clones,” “Gloria” and “Wasteland,” all of which are expected to appear on her upcoming 2019 project.
