Tierra Whack – Philidelphia, PA
Emerging as rapid-fire freestyler Dizzle Dizz back in 2011, she has since found her voice as the artist Tierra Whack and started making the most creative, unique music of her career.
At only 15 minutes long, the 22-year old’s debut project received a tremendous amount of support from fans and critics alike. With so many artists getting lost in the never-ending quest for virality, Whack is taking over the game with her ingenuity and artistic talent. As the young artist is finding massive success following the release of Whack World, including a Grammy nomination, she is without a doubt one of the most exciting artists to watch rise in 2019.
