With season two of the hit Starz drama series Power coming to a close, and the dawning of season two of FOX's Empire on the horizon

When Timbaland's not busy championing Chicago singer/rapper Tink, he's big-upping his other singer/songwriter, V. Bozeman.

Her latest triumph is a new mixtape, Winter’s Diary 3. The previously released slow jam “I Like” gave listeners a taste of what to expect on the 10-track […]

There are a million reasons why we f*cks with Tink. The badass Chicago rapper has been absolutely killin’ it lately, proving her rightful spot on XXL’s Freshman Class, track after track. Tink dropped her visuals to “Wet Dollars” with DJ Tazer early last month, when the two hit up Williamsburg, Brooklyn. And her Aaliyah-sampled single “Million” recently premiered on the Jumbotron […]

On the heels of her XXL Freestyle, Tink releases a brand new single titled “I Like.” The vibe-filled jam is produced by fellow Chicagoan/producer C-Sick. “I Like” arrives just a few weeks after the Timbland protegé’s Aaliyah-inspired hit song “Million.” “When you come tonight squeeze me tight, hold me close, kiss my cheek, arrest my soul,” […]

Big up to Tink for being a fearless young woman. Despite people’s backlash against Timbaland for bringing up a dream he had about Aaliyah telling him that Tink was “next,” the Illinois rapper and her mentor drop a reimagined version of Aaliyah’s classic “One In A Million.” The song samples the hook of Aaliyah’s 1996 R&B smash.

It seems like there isn’t an artist or project that Pharrell Williams isn’t lending some of his musical genius to, and that includes both new and veteran artists. The superstar producer recently stopped by The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, where the host asked him about who he is working with these days, and the answer […]

Following her dope set at The FADER Fort in Austin, Texas, Timbaland’s protégé Tink releases the visual to her new single “Ratchet Commandments.” The Dave Meyers-directed video features Tink delivering “the word” to those who break her commandments with their ratchet indiscretions. Dave Meyers, who’s directed videos for Missy Elliott, Rihanna, and Outkast, made sure he channeled a little ’90s […]

Last night, Jussie Smollett and Bryshere Gray (aka Yazz) of Empire captivated the crowd at Stage 48 during the show’s soundtrack release party sponsored by Hennessy in New York City. Yazz, who plays Hakeem, started the party off with his song “Drip Drop,” as party-goers lifted their Hennessy V.S drinks in the air to sing and dance alongside the […]

As promised, R&B/Hip-Hop newcomer Tink releases her Timbaland-produced banger “Ratchet Commandments.” Following the release of her Rich The Kid collaboration, Tink airs out the millennial generation for their ratchet behavior. “Thou shall not, lie up on the Bible/ how you looking for a title when you sleeping with his rival?” raps Tink. “Every night doing […]

Think Tink. After her mentor Timbaland caused a ruckus for leaking Tink’s version of Rick Ross’ “Movin’ Bass,” the Chicago songstress drops a new cut off the Boss Shit Only 2 mixtape titled “Ran Up A Check” featuring Rich The Kid. “Met him a month ago, talk to him on the low, told him I loved […]
