- Artist: Tink
- Track: Tell the Children
- Producer: Timbaland
- Album: None (Promo Single)
Yesterday evening, following the lengthy deliberation of a grand jury, it was announced that Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson would not face any criminal charges for the shooting death of unarmed teenager Michael Brown. In the wake of that dismaying decision, it's hard not to wonder whether there's any line a cop can't cross, when it comes to destroying black lives. On new promo single Tell the Children, coming on the heels of last week's Movin Bass (OG Version), unsigned buzzmaker Tink reflects on that question, spitting vividly about the threatening world in which black Americans currently find themselves. Timbaland, the artist's mentor and frequent collaborator, handles production duties. This record isn't attached to anything larger, but we'll keep you posted on Tink's plans as we learn more.
