Tierra Whack – “Dora”

blame it on Meka November 2, 2020

Former XXL freshwoman Tierra Whack returns to the DopeHouse with a unique new video, “Dora.”

Directed by conceptual artist Alex Da Corte, Alex says that “Dora is a tabletop ballet. Dora is a call to persist and to explore. The state of the world in March 2020 was an unprecedented one. A world confined to whatever place one calls “HOME.” I was in my studio in Philadelphia then, like most days, alone. Listening to Dora, I realize the lovable Latinx cartoon character (who recently celebrated her 20th anniversary) never really materializes in the song. Instead, “Dora” becomes “Door”, one of many clever linguistic slippages Tierra Whack employs on the song- and there is just plainly a call to explore. It was admittedly strange to think about opening doors and exploring at a time when leaving your home was a liable menace to society.”
