Her Hood: Southside
A '90s baby who loves '90s music—anyone from SWV to TLC—Tink grew up with a love for singing. She sang in the church choir, her mother was a gospel singer. But it was her father who encouraged her to write. In high school, she really began to notice that she could rap and after being noted for her freestyle verse over a Chief Keef beat, she knew she was good. At only 18, the Southsider is well on her way, one drill beat at a time
They wanna rap and make soul beats just like her:
"As a person, Chicago has shaped me to be strong. I come from a city wit' a lot of haters, I'll be honest, so Chicago just make me strong, it keep my blood thick. As a artist, we got the drill movement goin' on. The drill movement is basically like a vibe that you get from Chicago artists. It's hardcore and the beat is normally raw. It's hard. It's real too at the same time."
But they just not her...
"Listening to my music, I would love for people to understand that I'm just tellin' real stories, I'm not a gimmick. When I write, it's real. I'm not puttin' on for anybody or tryna sound like anyone. It's just real, authentic. That's all."
