On Friday, December 13th, rapper / singer-songwriter Tierra Whack made a guest appearance at VaynerMedia in Long Island City, New York. The Philadelphia-based artist surprised everyone when she jumped out from behind the stage greeting the crowd with one of her hit singles from 2019, ‘Only Child.’
The special performance was a treat for the employees at VaynerMedia, founded by Gary and AJ Vaynerchuk back in 2009. One could say that the full service digital agency wanted to close out the decade with a bang. The show was also an adequate celebration of the employees who helped grow the company into what it is now.
Tierra Whack signed to Interscope Records in the latter part of 2017, and has seen much success in her career since. From her days as ‘Dizzy Dizz’, Whack has collaborated with a variety of artists, ranging from Flying Lotus to Beyoncé, and performed alongside 6lack for his world tour. Earlier this year, she was named a member of XXL’s “2019 Freshman Class” along with Rico Nasty, DaBaby, Megan Thee Stallion, YBN Cordae, Gunna, Comethazine, Lil Mosey, Roddy Ricch, YK Osiris, and Blueface.
It’s not everyday you hear about hip-hop artists giving a guest performance in an unconventional setting. However, Whack knows how to keep a crowd engaged, even if it is a room filled with with some buttoned-up individuals. That’s surely a testament to her abilities as an artist, and this was a performance that needed to be shared with everyone.
