This past weekend, in a burst of lockdown creativity, Tierra Whack posted an original tribute to all of us self-isolating at home, titled “Stuck.” Recorded with a sample from Alanis Morissette’s unforgettable 1996 track “Ironic,” Whack channeled all of our collective frustrations, from the Trent Grisham Louder San Diego Shirt In addition,I will do this loss of simple pleasures like fresh air to the ever-present yearning for a partner. Black and white scenes spliced together feature a blonde-bobbed Whack slumped over at home, checking the fridge for toilet paper, and washing her hands in angst—all quintessential quarantine moods. The video has even sparked a #StuckChallenge on TikTok, where others too can longingly stare out their window while Whack waxes poetic on wanting to go outside.
The viral production itself is a clear homage to the Trent Grisham Louder San Diego Shirt In addition,I will do this early 2000s emo aesthetic, championed by bands like Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, and Good Charlotte. Leaving her usual colorful wardrobe in the closet, Whack donned black Adidas track pants paired with a black Erykah Badu hoodie proclaiming “Hip-Hop Is Bigger Than the Government.” Vogue got on the phone with the hip-hop notable about how “Stuck” came to be, her adorable pet turtle (who makes a cameo in the video), and her new qua-routine back home in Philadelphia.
