Tierra Whack Slices Up Living Potatoes in Whimsically Horrifying Music Video

Philadelphia rapper’s “Unemployed” is her latest surrealist clip

Philadelphia rapper Tierra Whack first introduced us to her surrealist style and pocket-sized jams with last year’s visual album, Whack World, consisting solely of minute-long songs and videos. This year, she’s released a string of individual tracks, and her latest, “Unemployed,” comes with its own clip.

At nearly three minutes long, “Unemployed” is a Russian novel compared to the Whack World songs, and the video takes the viewer on a truly mind-boggling, spud-filled journey with enough puppetry and body horror to make John Carpenter proud. Without giving too much away, the basic premise is that Tierra Whack is a chef chopping potatoes in a kitchen, and the potatoes are alive. That’s it. And it only escalates from there. It’s as whimsical as it is horrifying.

You can listen to Whack’s other latest singles here: “Only Child,” “CLONES,” “Gloria,” and “Wasteland.”
