HipHopDX

Simply put, the songs feel unfinished, which is a shame because — and here’s the crazy part — they’re all so good. Even without the video clips, Whack is able to express nearly every emotion a woman can experience in a 24-hour period, backed by a myriad of musical styles.

Pitchfork
The surreal, audiovisual album from the Philadelphia artist is only 15 minutes long, but it is overflowing with hooks and a powerful sense of imagination.

The 405

A snappy, hilarious, disturbing, damnably catchy, but most importantly, complete showcase for one of the most exciting young musicians to emerge – in any genre – for some time.

Spectrum Culture

This is the rare project that’s truly unmoored from genre.

The Needle Drop
The debut album from Philly hip hop artist Tierra Whack is an endearing set of pop rap and alternative R&B miniatures.

Revolutionary, colorful and changing everything i know before mini lp.

Every second of this album is like a great experience.

Black Nails, Cable Guy and Hookers is a wonderful perfect score and I do not belittle the fact that there are one minute track.

WHY DOES YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE HIGH RATE ALBUM "You're Dead" Flying Lotus, since there are a lot of tracks with lengths like "1:24, 0:40, 1:12, 1:27" etc. and do not accuse me of not knowing what the interlude is. ... read more

Wild, Warm, Weird.
Tierra Whack's debut Is pure fun for total weirdos. Creative, funny, charismatic, full of personality and extremely catchy. Visuals are Insane. Without a doubt the most imaginative and creative music videos I've seen in a while, and the cohesion between the tracks both auditive and visualIy Is just mind blowing. I just wish this were longer but I still love the idea of a 15 minute album. It just adds so much to It's replay value. I ... read more

I voraciously listen to music and am always striving to find new sounds and creative artists. I typically become obsessed with an album, listen to it a million times, and then move on to the next thing. I cannot move forward from Whack World. There are so many good ideas on this album, and to dismiss it (like I initially did) as slightly gimmicky and reliant on its music video for meaning is a failure on my part as a listener. Whack doesn't waste a single second on this album, and I find the ... read more

Being mad that these songs aren't long enough, is strange to me, its the style of the album, and I wish more albums followed their own unique designs, maybe then popular music wouldn't be so unbearable. Shiloh Dynasty showed that these shorter songs, can garner great attention, this is that formula brought to wondrous heights

I think this debut now builds great hype around her sophomore effort, more than any of her contempories and fuck its a crowded room too. Its a great new ploy to use, I ... read more

Tierra Whack is not the pioneer of the "mini-LP," but her innovative use of demos to front a 17-minute visual feature is something to be commended. The year prior to this album's release, 2017, saw Tierra dropping a deluge of non-album singles, and I suppose those scattered studio recordings served as the impetus for this release's unusual formatting. The end product is a delightful and emotionally intimate anthology film short enough to be itself be an entry into a typical package ... read more
