New Music: Tink f/ Rick Ross & Jay Z – ‘Movin’ Bass’

Tink

During his visit to “The Breakfast Club” this morning, Timbaland played the original version of “Movin’ Bass,” which appears on Rick Ross’ album Hood Billionaire. The “OG version” features his 19-year-old protégée Tink and additional bars from Jay Z.

Timbo was introduced to the Chicago rapper-singer by Da Internz. “She was music and she saved my life,” he said. “You can’t believe somebody 19 got it. We don’t see that no more. The last person we saw [like her] was Drake.”

He gave her “Movin’ Bass” to write to and she blew his mind. “I just fell to the floor ’cause I had never heard nobody do this—in life.”

Tink is preparing her debut on Mosley Music Group/Epic Records. “I will put my whole entire money in my account on her. She is a superstar,” said Tim.

Listen to “Movin’ Bass” and see if you agree.

New Music: Rick Ross f/ Jay Z – ‘Movin’ Bass’

Movin' Bass

Rick Ross is all about that bass (no treble). With two weeks until release, the MMG mogul unleashes the most anticipated collaboration on his seventh album Hood Billionaire.

The self-proclaimed “fat boy,” who’s looking much slimmer these days thanks to his RossFit training program, joins forces with Jay Z on the Timbaland-produced “Movin’ Bass,” their seventh collaboration to date.

“Grammy nominated once, but I’m still movin’ bass,” raps Rozay on the hustler’s anthem, while Hov holds down the hook (“Got them records jumpin’ out the store, and we still movin’ bass”).

In addition to Jay, Hood Billionaire features K. Michelle, R. Kelly, Boosie Badazz, Big K.R.I.T., French Montana, and more.
