"Tear It Up" is the second single from rapper Yung Wun's debut album, The Dirtiest Thirstiest. It features DMX, Lil' Flip and David Banner, the latter two of which had already scored a hit together in the form of "Like a Pimp".

The song samples and interpolates "Dancing Machine" by The Jackson 5 taken from the performance in the film Drumline without credit.

It peaked at #76 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it his only single to chart there and his most successful single to date.
