Timbaland, "Tell the Children" is a protest record that features Tink singing a somber interpolation of the hook ("You Better Watch Out") from Lauryn Hill's "Doo Wop (That Thing)," meant in this case as a warning to children like Mike Brown "to keep running" from antagonistic police.

"They lie and disrespect us/kill us and then neglect us."

Tink and Timbaland must have been pessimistic about the decision of the jury as well. This song had to have been produced and ready to go before the jury even made a decision.
