Chicago rapper/singer and erstwhile Timbaland protege Tink is hard at work on her debut album Think Tink this year, tweaking her sound on a stream of cuts from the iffy Biggie redux "Ratchet Commandments" to the hero-worshipping "Million," which liberally borrowed swag from Aaliyah's "One in a Million." Today she releases "I Like," a sultry slow jam where she lists off all the attributes a lover needs to grab her attention over inviting, piano-laced production from hometown beatmaker C-Sick, whose growing catalog includes King Louie's "Showtime" and "Val Venis." Think of "I Like" as the polar opposite of Chitown brawler Chief Keef's "Don't Like," romantic and tender in all the spots the drill banger it references was punch-drunk and ornery. Stream "I Like" below.
