Tink addresses police brutality on "Tell The Children".

Anyone who's been following Tink's career knows that she was destined to be a star, but since linking with Timbaland, the process has been jump-started. Over the past week, we've already heard two songs the Chicago singer and rapper crafted with Timbo -- the original (and superior) version of Rick Ross' "Movin' Bass", as well as the braggy rap cut, "Around The Clock".

Following the grand jury's decision not to indict Darren Wilson for the shooting of Michael Brown, Tink and Tim's new collaboration have decided to release a protest record. "Tell The Children" speaks directly to issues of police brutality, and the fear one experiences today as a black American. It's a necessary listen on a day like today.

Quotable Lyrics:
A badge is a pass to do whatever
So now we living in fear
Of the people here to protect us
Yo, they lie and disrespect us
Kill us, and then neglect us
The problem when nobody
Sees the view from our perspective
My people shed blood from the acres you had stole
Now my people shedding blood
On the gravel left in the cold
