Tierra Whack‘s aptly titled, ongoing Whack History Month single-series isn’t winding down yet. Just one week after she tapped into her disdain for Los Angeles and its culture on “Wasteland,” the fast-rising artist is back with another new record, “Unemployed.” Debuted on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 program earlier today, “Unemployed” serves as the fifth entry in Tierra Whack’s Whack History Month run.

“Rap got boring to me for a long time so I just started singing more. But it was one of those days where I was home recording in Philly … Kenny  [co-writer Kenete Simms] hit the beat and it was hitting,” Tierra Whack tells Zane Lowe, explaining how the “Unemployed” sessions materialized. ”I was like, ‘you know what? People think I can’t rap anymore?’ I’m like, ‘I just gotta rap, I gotta rap.’” For the first time in her career, Tierra Whack’s mother also played a role in helping her daughter jump-start her creative process. “You know what’s crazy? My mom is never in the studio with me, but she was in the studio that day and she like basically helped me with the hook. It’s crazy … It was so funny … she told me how to say it, and I was like, ‘oh, okay!”

You can stream Tierra Whack’s latest Whack History Month offering “Unemployed” above. For several weeks now, every Tuesday has yielded new music from Tierra Whack, so don’t be surprised if we get another track next week.
