GoldLink's North American Tour
The most promising export of the growing DMV music scene is handsdown, GoldLink. The young upstart is coming off the success of his debut projectThe God Complex and is also working closely with the legendary Rick Rubin. If you can achieve the almighty Rubin co-sign with only one project under your belt, it is safe to say you are doing something right. GoldLink has taken the rap world by storm while only releasing music under the moniker for a little over a year. From a relatively unknown and mysterious artist to a world renowned rapper known for his effortless flow, relatable wordplay and his impeccable production selection. The 21-year-old rapper crafted his own genre of bouncy hip-hop that utilizes upbeat dance-friendly production.
GoldLink will be embarking on his first headlining tour of his career. The 13-city tour will begin June 9th in Brooklyn and culminate in Vancouver on June 26th. With stops in Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Dallas, Minneapolis, Chicago and several other cities in between, there is more than likely a stop you can make the trek to. Don’t worry hometown fans, Link said he has a “special surprise” for all the DMV natives out there. His live energy is even more powerful than what we here from his debut project and the dance-laden nature lends well to a live setting.
