Emerging Artist

20-year-old Chicago-area rapper/singer Tink (#12) has already dropped a six-pack of mixtapes in just three years and been selected as part of XXL magazine’s 2015 Freshman Class. Signed to Timbaland’s Mosley Music Group (currently an imprint of Epic Records) her debut album Think Tink is forthcoming and her single Million is leading the way. Tink has also featured on many cuts including some different looks from your standard rapper: Sleigh Bells’ That Did It and Pentatonix’s Can’t Sleep Love; also be sure to check out her verse on another interesting up-and-comer’s track, Secret Garden from Sway Clarke II. With heady lyrical content and a propensity to take on emotional and important topics, there is surely substance for the foundation of a very successful career to be found here.
