The young Chicago rapper Tink has built buzz so far on the strength of a few party-starting singles, but the latest track she's shared is a little more serious - it's "Tell the Children," her reaction to last night's events in Ferguson, Missouri, where police officer Darren Wilson was not indicted for killing unarmed, eighteen-year-old Michael Brown in August. Timbaland's production puts emotional, intense vocal samples from news broadcasts front and center as Tink reminisces on police brutality, racial inequality, and her own past. It's a chilling listen - we can't wait to hear more from her. Check it out below.
