Chicago’s own Tink is on the come up with the release of her latest mixtape Winter’s Diary 2. With a new wave of young artists emerging from the Windy City, Tink sets herself apart with her unique style exuding on this new record.
The mixtape displays Tink’s sweet, but edgy vocal abilities with lyrics that any girl can relate to in any situation. She shines on songs like “Fly Away”, “HML”, and the Alicia Keys inspired “Your Secrets”, with a sampled hook from her 2004 hit “Diary”. She also showed that she can do more than hold a note with the tug-of-war, he said/ she said rap battle that is “Talkin’ Bout” featuring Chicago rapper Lil’ Herb.
There were very few misses with this record, although it would be great to hear a little more of her sassy, condescending raps like in past records. Tink sticks with the diary theme, with each song presenting a sense of vulnerability like she was reading right out of her private pages.
Winter’s Diary 2 was a decent collection, LP length wise, of R&B and displayed a tasteful amount of Tink’s distinct flow. Tink is creating a name for herself in the Hip-Hop game where female presence is lacking.
