When an artist has a creative plan in place and the support of their peers, like Tierra Whack and her new album Whack World, there’s a chance people will notice and remember the name.
The album, which was released on May 30, is paired with a short film comprised of 15 chapters. Each chapter is a minute long since each song has the same run time. It makes for a perfect album to be broken down into her Instagram.
The music itself draws from various subgenres, including bossa nova, pop and melodic Hip Hop.
Several other artists have already shown their support for the new album on Twitter including Solange, Vince Staples, Boogie, and Mike WiLL Made-It.
