The Big Read – Tierra Whack: “I’m working hard to change the world”

Philly rapper Tierra Whack does things her own way, with a 15-minute debut album made of 15 minute-long songs, and a recent penchant for surreal, horror movie-inspired videos. It's won her a legion of fans that includes Lauryn Hill, Andre 3000 and Tyler, the Creator, all of whom have entered her candy cane world. Ahead of her biggest UK show to date, at London's Village Underground on June 3, she tells Dhruva Balram about her burning ambition to make a movie, work with Kanye and eat her way around the world.
