Tink Returning With Pain & Pleasure EP

Tink is set to make her return to music with the upcoming release a new EP, Pain & Pleasure.

After first teasing the project Instagram last month, the Chicago rapper again hit the Gram on Tuesday (March 20) to ficially announce the EP will arrive on March 30.

Pain & Pleasure will serve as Tinks first full-length release since becoming an independent artist again, having severed ties with Timbalands Mosley Music Group earlier this year.

During an interview with The FADER published in February, Tink spoke on her label situation.

Over time, people grow up I grew up, she said. I had to get on my boss shit and hire some new attorneys. I had to take a couple flights and sit down with different people who could actually help me in my situation. I had some setbacks; I had people fighting me from either side. Ultimately, Im just happy that were at an agreement right now.

A major sticking point for Tink was the constant delaying her debut album, Think Tink.

The album was actually finished, she said. There was an intro, I had interludes. It was Timbalands] call to hold back on it, and I think, I want to say, for the benefit the doubt, hedidwant to perfect it. But it was Tims call not to put it out.

In addition to Pain & Pleasure, Tink also plans to release the fifth installment her Winters Diary mixtape series sometime this year.
