Video: TisaKorean – “iRock (Sippin On Dat Ciroc)” ft. Kblast
The Dance Rap Innovator Seeks For Ciroc to Sip in His Energetic New Video
“The Houston artist is taking Texas dance rap to new, and much weirder, heights.” – The FADER
“TisaKorean’s Lunatic Dance Rap Is Made for More Than Just Memes” – SPIN
“With its tinny mix, infectious chant raps, and Fruity Loops-style beats, this Texas dance rap king’s debut has a refreshingly unforced charm.” – Pitchfork
“Tisakorean is in the future. Need proof? Watch one of his Aeropostale and Sperry wearing freestyle rap Instagram videos. In the last year, Tisakorean has become the king of Texas dance rap.” – Pitchfork
Bearing a toothy smile and an unbeatable array of viral dances, TisaKorean radiates positivity with his innovative dance rap. Welcoming listeners into his world of cars, girls, and alcohol, the Houston native shares “iRock (Sippin On Dat Ciroc),” his new single. “iRock” derives its power from its simplicity, combining a two-finger piano loop with insistent hi-hats and thumping 808s to create a canvas on which Tisa can paint his outlandish punchlines and wild ad-libs: “2 Cups got me slump/3 cups got me sleep/4 cups got me weak/5 cups got me geek.” Produced by TisaKorean himself and featuring an appearance from Dallas native Kblast, “iRock” is much more ambitious than it initially seems, offering several distinct hooks and beat-shifts designed to keep the dance floor filled. In the video, Tisa and Kblast hop in their Chevy and search the town for the finest “iRock,” making pitstops to pop bottles and show off their latest moves.
TisaKorean and Kblast previously connected for “The Mop,” TisaKorean’s world-conquering rap hit. Also featuring Huncho Da Rockstar, “The Mop” racked up over 35 million combined views on the music. With over 30 million combined views on “The Mop” and its accompanying dance video, the eponymous dance is the first dance rap craze of the 2020s. In recent weeks, the song and dance has inspired multiple TikTok challenges. “The Mop” challenge has earned the attention of a wide array of celebrities, including LeBron James, Lil Uzi Vert, James Harden, Jonah Hill, Marshmello, Diplo, Chance The Rapper, and dozens of football and basketball athletes. Tisa followed up “The Mop” with “Bate Onna Bo,” a heavy and hypnotic dance rap odyssey, which came equipped with a FADER-premiered marine-themed animated video.
Fresh off celebrating his 25th birthday earlier this week, TisaKorean is currently putting the finishing touches on a new project, coming Fall 2020 via Ultra Records. Stay tuned for more announcements.
