#THINKTINK: 5 Reasons Why I Love Tink !

She’s my best friend! Tink really makes you feel like you’re her best friend through her music! She’s so personable and makes you feel some type of way because whatever she’s singing or rapping about, we’ve seen it or been through it!  She’s literally telling your story, your sister’s story, or your best friend’s story. When I listen to her I just keep thinking ‘yes girl you really understand me’ especially on ‘Treat Me Like Somebody’ & ‘Don’t Tell Nobody’ featuring Jeremih. It’s all relatable.

PVAMU takes Selma for it’s 50th Anniversary

After a long 10 hour trip from Prairie View, Texas to Selma, Alabama, PVAMU made their mark on Selma for it’s 50th anniversary. This was definitely an humbling experience to be in such a place where history was made. It seemed so surreal and I’m more than proud and blessed that my HBCU offered me this opportunity. Watching the Selma movie on the way there, seeing motivational speakers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, and hearing people’s story really put everything in perspective. 50 years ago was not that long at all….my granny is barely some years over 50.

After being rushed and only having 4.5 minutes to interview her, MC Lyte was so down to earth,…
