There was not even an announcement that Tink had a mixtape coming out and suddenly, late tonight/early morning she drops Winter’s Diary 3 on us. Timbaland, Cookin Soul, C-Sick, Chef Byer all produce across the 10 track solo effort below.
XXL’s 2015 Freshman Class is revealed as the annual issue brings about the annual debate and highlights the up and comers from the rap scene that are prime for a big year.
This year’s class: DeJ Loaf, Fetty Wap, GoldLink, K Camp, OG Maco, Raury, Shy Glizzy, Tink, Vince Staples and Kidd Kidd.
Tink reppin’ for the Chi. Any surprises? Kidd Kidd? K Camp? They’re both trending at the moment in Chicago.
My personal favorite of the group: Raury. Lookin’ forward to what’s next for the young Indigo Child outta ATL.
The latest from Tink and Timbaland is the new video for “Around The Clock”, which no doubt has an addicting beat from the latter. The sound matches the clock theme and Tink puts it down with some clever references throughout (that Dwight Howard one…) with Charlamagne Tha God contributing as well. Watch and see above as DGainz is behind the lens.
In the wake of the Ferguson indecision, Chicago’s Tink lets loose her lyrical “Tell The Children”, produced by her newfound close collaborator Timbaland.
Yup, Charlamagne’s on it, but no, he’s not rapping. Instead it’s some deep quotables from the radio personality that kick off the song with Tink handling the rapping duties. It’s over a minimal production from Timbaland, who concludes the recording telling the Breakfast Club that Tink’s album is one of the best he’s done since Aaliyah’s. Dang. We shall see…
