Flying Lotus is a Los Angeles-bred musical treasure. His resumé includes work with the late Mac Miller, Kendrick Lamar, Thundercat, Earl Sweatshirt, DOOM and Radiohead’s Thom Yorke. But he’s always looking to collaborate with other like-minded individuals.
So after FlyLo told HipHopDX he wanted to do an entire album with Tierra Whack, naturally we had to let the Whack World mastermind know.
Last month, DX’s Jake Rohn caught up with Whack at Minnesota’s 2019 Soundset Music Festival and asked if she’d heard about FlyLo’s request.
“He can do whatever he wants with me,” she said. When asked what the title should be, she replied, “Whatever he wants it to be.”
In an effort to bridge the gap and make this collaboration happen, DX sent FlyLo the interview.
“Bahhhhhhhhhhhh,” he responded via text to DX. “I did just laugh like a goat when I saw that.”
For now, their joint project is merely an abstract idea floating around in cyberspace but with both artists on board, perhaps it will soon become a reality.
After all, FlyLo’s latest effort — Flamagra — is just dropped and it’s already been over year since the audio visual album Whack Worldswitched up the game.
Maybe it’s time.
