New Music: Tink – ‘Tell the Children’

In the wake of the protests in Ferguson, Tink uses her voice to take a stand on the chilling track “Tell the Children.” Over the Timbaland production, the 19-year-old Chicago rapper-singer fires a warning (“Tell the children to watch out / Keep running”) and spits some harsh truths.

“King died for us ni**as living in poverty / 50 years later, we still don’t have equality,” she sings. “Badge is a pass to do whatever / So now we livin’ in fear of the people here to protect us.”

Tink, who is signed to Mosley Music Group/Epic Records, has also released a video for her collaboration with Sleigh Bells called “That Did It.”

She can be heard on the original version of Rick Ross’ Hood Billionaire single “Movin’ Bass” featuring Jay Z.

Hear her move mountains with her powerful words.
