GoldLink - The God Complex
GoldLink is an up-and-coming DMV area rapper who, to this point, has revealed very little about his personal identity, thus allowing his music to speak for itself (get familiar with him in our October edition of On the Come Up). The cover for his mixtape The God Complex is a collaboration between illustrator Christina Mudarri and graphic designer Nick Fulcher. They depict a sea of identical white masks immediately reminiscent of some sort of tribal religion. In the top right hand corner there floats a sole red and green colored mask, encompassed by a barely visible grey aura of its own. A telling quote is printed on the back side of the cover: "The moment God is figured out with nice neat lines and definitions, we are no longer dealing with God." Thus it seems GoldLink will continue his career as a figure shrouded in mystery-- in a game where most rappers, many of whom practice a type of self-worship, construct highly superficial identities that they can sell to the public.
