Trinity “Tink” Home is bringing a different flare to the current female rap game through her clever lyrics and smooth R&B vocals. The 20-year-old multi-faceted artist is the latest act signed to Mosley Music Group through Epic Records. She gained recognition from her R&B mixtape, “Winters Diary,” in March of 2012, followed by her sophomore mix tape “Alter Ego” where she focused on her rapping. Most notably, Tink has become Timbaland’s newest protégé.
Growing up in Calumet City, a south suburb outside of Chicago, Illinois, Tink attributes her love for music to her beginnings in church. Starting at the tender age of five, she followed in the footsteps of her mother, a gospel singer, and father, a music producer, who encouraged her to start writing music. She also credits TLC, Alicia Keys, and Da Brat as her musical influences growing up. The artist discovered her love for rap, and got the nickname Tink, in high school.
She has garnered a major scale buzz from her freestyle over a Chief Keef beat to her songs such as “M.E.N.” With many drawing comparisons of her sound to the greats like the late Aaliyah and Lauryn Hill, Tink proves that’s she’s up to the task. The newly emerging artist already has heavyweight collaborations under her belt such as Jay Z, Rick Ross and Andre 3000. However, it is her solo work that is creating the buzz.
Tink recently shot the video for her well-received single, “Ratchet Commandments.” Keep a look out for her highly anticipated album, Think Think to drop sometime this summer. The rapper and singer/song-writer’s versatility, delivery and style prove that she’s a force to be reckoned with. She’s next.
