Artist & Event Info

Tierra Whack is a Philadelphia native whose theatrical, undeniably unique take on contemporary rap and R&B has received wide-spread acclaim.

Venue changed from OMEARA to Village Underground. Original tickets remain valid.

North Philly MC Tierra Whack’s passion for writing was cemented at the age of 13, when she enrolled at Feltonville School of Arts and Sciences for 8th grade. Already a huge fan of ’90s hip-hop, the 15-year-old began rapping under the moniker Dizzle Dizz, and quickly gained a rep around the City of Brotherly Love for ripping the mic with her clever, off-the-dome wordplay. Before long, she met local luminaries like Meek Mill and appeared on longtime radio DJ Cosmic Kev’s Come Up show on Power 99. After a self-imposed hiatus to Atlanta in 2012 to finish up her senior year of high school, Whack returned to Philadelphia in 2015, utilising her real name, Tierra Whack, and released a string of singles (‘Toe Jam,’ ‘Child Please,’ ‘Shit Happens’) leading up to the release of 2018’s, Whack World, the critically-acclaimed album and imaginative fifteen-minute music, which WIRED called “a pocket-sized masterpiece” and DAZED and Noisey hailed their Album of the Year. With a bright future ahead, Whack concedes her long-term goal “is to grow into the superstar that I am.”
