If you're asking the right crowd, the first weekend of Coachella was Tierra Whack's to own, with the Philly-bred star making an impact during her debut in Indio, catching the attention of Vince Staples and even joining Janelle Monae onstage during her set.
During the weekend, Whack got to enjoy the fruits of her labor backstage as she rubbed elbows with the idols who have become her peers and even got the chance to tell 2 Chainz about the one time she washed his car when she was a teenager. Whack has previously revealed the fun fact, revealing the time that she worked at a car wash in Atlanta when she was 18-years-old. 2 Chainz clearly never caught wind of the story and in a new clip of Whack disclosing the details backstage, he appeared to be in a state of shock.
"I swear," Whack can be heard repeating faintly.
It was in an interview with The New York Times that she originally shared the story.
“I have so much built-up inside,” she told The Times. “To be able to put what I have in my head into real life is just an amazing thing.” She added that the car washing job was her first in Atlanta and helped her fund the purchase of a laptop with which she began her music-making process.
“I washed 2 Chainz’s truck, T.I’s car, but I missed Andre 3000.”
