Produced by Timbo, the track shares a similarity to the Notorious B.I.G.'s nearly 20-year-old cut "Ten Crack Commandments" and sees the teen rapper spit over a bouncy beat. Tink's confidence shines from the very start with her stating her purpose from the jump: "I've done been at this thing for years / It's done turned me to an animal / Some of y'all ratchet / I'mma write you h**s a manual."
Aside from its impeccable production value, the song itself sees Tink knock her fellow millennial women — and even some men — who boast "ratchet behavior" on the regular. From attention-seeking Instagram models to absent-minded fathers, the young femcee covers all dynamics of ratchetness in the track.
"I thought we had some young queens, what you mean / We act belligerent / Generation of ignorance / B*****s live for the 'Gram, so their life ain't got no significance," she raps, before targeting men in the last verse with, "You fake fathers never held your daughters / Never had a conversation / Too immature to get an occupation."
Serving a completely different flavor than that shown in her slightly more subtle "Ran Up a Check," "Ratchet Commandments" possesses the grit needed to make hip hop-lovers take notice. Her mentor, Timbaland, even has high hopes for her debut project, dubbing it "one of the best albums I did since [Aaliyah's] One in a Million."
