Joining “progressive hip hop” acts The Cool Kids, Kidz In the Hall, and Mickey Factz is 21-year old Jump Street, Queens native A. Pinks. Rhyming since he turned 15, Pinks has played hardball on the NY underground scene, churning out mixtapes like It’s Not A Rumor: Google Me with G-Unit’s DJ Whoo Kid. Ready to take his name and talents nationwide, Pinks’ new introduction includes a simple message to the hip-hop world: Hit The Lights (I’m On). Giving the track a classic New York feel is producer Baritone, whose old-school beat will certainly make plenty of East Coast rap fans Hit The Lights for A. Pinks. It remains to be seen, however, if Pinks can deliver hits that will capture him a nationwide audience.
