Let’s Talk About Tink- Treat Me Like Somebody

So you haven’t heard of Tink ? Well you’re sleeping on a sweet little talent out of the infamous Chicago. Tink is a rapper, but what caught my attention is that she is also a singer. The first song I ever listened to of hers was Treat Me Like Somebody. After that I was hooked. I searched for any thing else that I could get my hands on to hear more from her…..I stumbled upon  her latest work Winter’s Diary 2: Forever Yours, and I’ve been listening to it ever since.

Get into Tink…….I think she has great potential.

There’s always ALOT of bad press , well here’s some AWESOME press !!!!
Kanye West and Common along with their charities and other community organizations , are teaming up to bring jobs to the youth of Chicago .

They are focused on securing year-round jobs for young people ages 16 to 24. Partners of this initiative include: Alternative Schools Network (ASN), Austin Peoples Action Center (APAC), Centers for New Horizons, Chicago Jobs Council and UCAN.

The group are also trying to secure partners in the private and public sector . They want to provide year-round jobs to a minimum of 1,000 youth with the intent to increase this number by 1,000 per year over the next four years, for a target of 15,000 youth impacted over the next five years.
