TisaKorean is a restless creative, constantly originating new dances, producing his own beats, and even inventing his own language. The Houston native channels his insatiable creative energy into Wasteland., his brand new album. Spanning 14 tracks, Wasteland. is a whirlwind tour through Tisa’s wild world of ladies and libations, offering party anthems of all speeds, shapes, and sizes. The 24-year-old rapper experiments with a variety of entrancing flows, offering rapidfire patter in the rubbery anthem “F*ck It Up,” delivering teetering, monosyllabic bars in “It’ll Clap,” and even proving to be an expert melodist on bouncy banger “Friday Nite” and the plaintive and emotional “Sunset.” Wherever his muse takes him, Tisa is always focused on the dance floor, always making sure his bass knocks and his hi-hats bounce.
“I’m excited about Wasteland.,” says TisaKorean. “The music on this project lets you hear where I’m at and where I’m going. I can’t wait to bring people along for the ride. I came up with the title ‘Wasteland.’ because I feel that’s what the project is: a ‘landfill’ of different vibes. I think it’s something on there for everyone.”
The new album is home to “The Mop,” a collab with Kblast and Huncho Da Rockstar that generated over 40 million streams and inspired one of the first viral dances of the young decade. Wasteland also hosts recent singles like “iRock (Sippin On Dat Ciroc),” a thumping Texas trap slapper with an appearance from Kblast, “Did You Know (Wifi Password)/Bounce,” a downtempo, Pitchfork-approved banger that earned the attention of Chance The Rapper, “Rocky Road,” an EDM-flavored bouncer with contributions from Father and YehMe2, and beat-shifting dance-rap odyssey “Bate Onna Bo.” Wasteland. is available everywhere via Ultra Records.
Along with the album, TisaKorean shares “Go/Baby Steps” a music video that includes two of the album’s highlight tracks. Deeply rooted in the sounds of his hometown, “Baby Steps” features the menacing horn fanfares and syrup-friendly lyrics of Houston rap. TisaKorean adds a emphatic flow and the off-color witticisms that have become his trademark: “It’s way too packed, there ain’t no parking spots around the club.” Directed by TisaKorean and featuring subtitles in Tisinese, a brand new language that Tisa created, the “Go/Baby Steps”video [VIDEO DESCRIPTION TO COME]
