TIDAL Rising Artist of the Week: Tommy Genesis

TIDAL Rising Artist of the Week: Tommy Genesis

This week marks a milestone for Vancouver-bred rapper Tommy Genesis. Not only is she TIDAL’s Rising Artist of the Week, but Genesis is inching closer to the release of her second full-length album, Tommy Genesis, due November 9.

As the title suggests, the LP is a representation of the artist today — young, creative, and unapologetically sexual. A self-described “fetish rapper,” Genesis rhymes in X-rated pillow talk and speaks openly about her bisexual orientation.

Sexuality has always been a part of Tommy’s story. In kindergarten, she was creating BDSM-themed paintings, and during her later years, she brought this subject matter to film, sculpture, and eventually to the mic — first with punk and later in hip-hop.

It was here in hip-hop where she found her niche. Discovered by Atlanta rapper and Awful Records founder, Father, Genesis signed with the label and released her debut LP, World Vision, in 2015. Genesis eventually went on to model for Calvin Klein, collaborate with M.I.A. at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, and support Dua Lipa on her 2018 tour while prepping for the release of Tommy Genesis.

This week, TIDAL will be counting down the days until the album’s November 9 release alongside Genesis. With a guest playlist and Q&A in store, get to know the budding artist.
