Tink Reveals Working With DJ Dahi On Debut, Confirms 'Your Voice' The Power Of The Beat' & 'Cut Her Off'

By Kevin Ritchie. Your new favourite rapper, Tink, is all about female empowerment, tough love and the truth – even when it hurts. There is pressure and then there is pressure. Pressure is when a steady stream of music uploaded to SoundCloud rouses the hype machine and summons the music industry’s attention. Pressure is when influential beatmaker Timbaland grabs the mic at SXSW and tells a crowd that R&B singer Aaliyah – who died in a plane crash in 2001 – appeared to him in a dream and said: “She’s the one.”

"Dacoury Natche, professionally known as DJ Dahi, is an American hip hop disc jockey and music producer from Inglewood, California."

She is Tink, born Trinity Home, a 20-year-old rapper and singer from Chicago who will make her Toronto debut at NXNE on Wednesday. After defining the sound of pop with Missy Elliott, Justin Timberlake and Nelly Furtado, Timbaland heard in Tink a new artist he could connect with musically the way he did with the teenage Aaliyah in 1996. After spending a year in the studio with Tink, he suggested she record a remix of Aaliyah’s One In A Million he had been sitting on.

Timbaland x HauteLiving.com Article, Forges An ‘Empire’ While Smelling The Roses

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
By Hadley Henriette, photos by Nick Garcia. Great songs never die. They live on forever in people’s hearts, minds and music collections. In this vein, superstar music producer Timbaland, née Tim Mosley, occupies a little place inside millions of people all over the planet with the hundreds of hits he’s created over an extremely prolific twenty-five year career. “I never count them,” he says from his sprawling South Miami home. Perhaps it is because the number of songs he’s crafted reaches well over five hundred.

His ability to be prolific is coming in handy on one of his latest gigs—producing the music on Fox’s wildly addictive nighttime soap, Empire. The show centers around a hip-hop mogul named Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard), CEO of Empire Entertainment. The show features an all-star cast that performs multiple songs each episode. The pace of creation is fast and furious, but doesn’t faze Timbaland. “The pace is not the problem; the hardest part is understanding what they want you to do for each song and character, and making that happen.”

Courtney Love Explains How Timbaland Dealt With Her Limited Vocal Range On Empire

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
By Gabriela Tully Claymore. Girls star Jemima Kirke interviewed Courtney Love for the latest issue of Citizens Of Humanity, and if you’re familiar with Kirke’s character Jessa on the show and Love’s reputation, then you know that they’re an ideal duo. Kirke asked dozens of questions on a variety of topics, but it’s especially interesting to read what Love had to say about working with Timbaland to prepare for her role as Elle Dallas in the popular FOX series Empire. Apparently, Timbaland had to tweak a lot of the songs that he produced for Love’s character in order to suit her voice:

I saw you in Empire. Courtney, you were so fucking good! I was blown away!
Oh, thank you!

It’s just your singing—you singing was my favorite part. It was your voice, it was your style, it was the way you sang painfully, you know, so that was awesome. When you got sent that role, did you immediately want to do that?
Yeah! I didn’t get sent that role, though.
