    On April 12, 25-year-old Freddie Gray was arrested in Baltimore for possession of a switchblade, though it's still not clear why he was pursued in the first place. Police claim Gray was apprehended without force, though bystanders have suggested otherwise, and video evidence shows Gray screaming while being forced into the police's van. What happened next is still being investigated, though by the time Gray arrived at the police station, he was unresponsive, unable to talk or breathe.

    As is obvious from the multiple "who??" comments that still somehow show up on pretty much everything we post about Tink, many of you still need to get familiar with one of hip-hop's most talented young stars. The 19-year-old Chicago native first popped up on our radars with her pair of Winter's Diary tapes, and ever since then, she's been elevating her craft with each ensuing track.

    At just 19, Tink, Timbaland's latest prodigy, is already one of hip-hop's rising stars. She's in the running for this year's Freshmen class (she made our list), and we're expecting her debut album on Tim's Moseley Music imprint later this year. Tonight (March 21), during the final Fader SXSW showcase, Timbaland told the crowd that his partnership with Tink is meant to be.

    If you're as big as Jay Z, you can't get away with uncredited samples, even if they appear on very brief interlude tracks. On Magna Carta Holy Grail's "Versus," which lasts for all of 51 seconds, producers Timbaland and Swizz Beatz sampled Swiss musician Bruno Spoerri without giving him credit, and now them and Hov are going to have to pay up.

    In 2002, one-hit-wonder Tweet, dropped that one hit that jumped to number one on Billboard' hip hop chart and all the way to lucky number seven on the hot 100 chart. "Oops" featuring the Queen of the millennium, Missy Elliot, and produced by Timbaland, was played more on the radio than any other hit that year (if my memory serves me correctly), as it was remixed by several star rappers like Fabulous and Bubba Sparx.

    Tink is poised for success. With Timbaland backing the rapper-slash-singer, and a strong buzz thanks to the producer leaking a few records during a Breakfast Club sit-down last year, she has the rap game's full attention. The Fader capitalizes on that today by nabbing the soon-to-be star for the cover of their new issue.

    While we’ve been hearing about a comeback album from Missy Elliott for months, it now appears to be official in the works. Just a week after making her surprise appearance at the Super Bowl halftime performance, Missy Elliott decided to reunite with her longtime partner Timbaland, and hit the studio to cook up some new heat.

    Beyoncé's hit single "Drunk In Love" already faced a bit of controversy earlier this year when Future voiced his confusion for not being credited as one of the song's writers, and now a bit of legal drama has emerged around a sample used within. Hungarian singer Monika Miczura Juhasz, known as Mitsou, says she was "sampled and digitally manipulated without her permission” on the track.

    We know that Rick Ross wasn't the most pleased when Timbaland decided to let us hear an alternate version of "Movin' Bass," which heavily featured his artist Tink (and was coincidentally much better than the version that landed on Rozay's album).

    Timbaland has had a long and varied career, but he got his start in R&B. Timbo's first major production work was with Jodeci, but not long after, he linked up with newcomer Ginuwine. The result was an unstoppable team, crafting multiple hits together, including the timeless smash, Pony.

    Releasing two full length albums in one year is a rare feat most rappers will never accomplish, but in a sense, it's really nothing new for Rick Ross, who yesterday released Hood Billionaire, his second solo album of the year. The rapper has been dropping albums, along with mixtapes that have been considered to be as good as albums, within months of each other for years now. His latest album, however, isn’t a fitting follow-up to his sixth solo release, Mastermind, which hit retailers in March of this year.

    Aaliyah is a touchy subject. Pretty much anytime her music is touched, there's an immediate uproar. Not even Drake -- who seems to be able to do no wrong in the public eye -- was shamed out of working on a posthumous Aaliyah project. Thus, when a Lifetime-sanctioned biopic on the singer was announced, it was clear that if it wasn't an absolutely flawless portrayal, there would be hell to pay.
