- VroomGoldLink hasn't dropped new music in a minute, but he did make headlines recently when we learned he was working with famed hip-hop producer Rick Rubin on a full project. The DMV native first made waves in the rap game/blogosphere with his debut project The God Complex, which put his unique dance-rap style on display. Staying in that lane, GoldLink connected with L.A.-based producers Falcons for "Vroom".
- VelhoLast we heard from GoldLink he popped up with Chet Faker mid-summer for "On You." The New York-based rapper has been markedly low-key since dropping his debut The God Complex, but returns again today with a new contribution to a compilation mixtape helmed by streetwear brand Stussy and Soulection.
- On YouYet another outstanding collaboration put together by the on-going Songs From Scratch series courtesy of yours truly & adidas. Following up two previous collabos involving Chicago singer/rapper Tink (one with DJ Dahi, "M.E.N." and one with Kelela "Want It"), we get a collaboration involving the buzzing rapper GoldLink and electronic artist Chet Faker, "On You."
- Planet ParadiseThe reason why GoldLink is rising through the ranks amongst better promoted artists just through his soundcloud account is because of drops like this. Enter "Planet Paradise," a song with skyrocketing viral attention. The cut starts with a sample from A Tribe Called Quest until the bold direction from the acclaimed Louie Lastic kicks in, and the DMV native starts dropping straight fire, with some impressive rapid delivery.
