Over a good cup of tea, we spill secrets, opinions, thoughts, and all kinds of truths. Wic Whitney engages in a similar exchange via music.

Whether he serves his message warm through thick hip-hop beats or cool atop laidback R&B soul instrumentation, you’ll feel equally satisfied. The Arkansas-born and Chicago-based rapper, singer, and songwriter sonically channels all of the emotions and perspectives of a multifaceted conversation among friends in his artistry.

Piling up millions of streams and buzzing on his own terms, he proves intoxicating and invigorating on his 2024 Another Cup EP.

During 2017, he made waves with the Tide Pools EP. On its heels, he continued to captivate listeners with The Sunshine Couch EP highlighted by the standout “Mama’s Song.” 2023 saw him drop the fan favorite “Matcha,” gathering north of 1.2 million Spotify streams and earning acclaim from Glide Magazine and more.

He kicked off 2024 with Afternoon Tea, spawning “Oolong” and stoking further buzz. He kept cooking up tracks though, crafting Another Cup in Chicago and St. Louis.
