READ TINK’S FADER GEN F PROFILE

Ask Tink how things are going, and the latest teenaged star to break out from Chicago’s dynamic hip-hop scene replies with just three words: “Everything is everything.” It’s no surprise to hear her reference Lauryn Hill’s 1999 hit: “I’ve been getting a lot of comparisons to her,” Tink says of the trailblazer whose Miseducation LP dropped when she was still in diapers. If Hill was the singer who could rap, perhaps Tink is the rapper who can sing. While Tink’s first three mixtapes emphasized her whiny drawl, with mean-girl taunts spit so hard you could feel the moisture, September’s Boss Up calls equal attention to her honey-sweet alto.

D. Gainz: “As much as people don’t like Keef, his situation gives kids from the street some hope. Keef didn’t have nothing! So I think that makes people appreciate themselves a little more. Everything we doing is inspiring somebody to show that you don’t need a lot.”
