FTOD today is by one of my favourite MC’s Goldlink. The DMV native has carved out his own unique lane in the game & his notoriety for absolutely bodying dance music beats is very well known. I’ve followed his career since I heard his critically acclaimed debut mixtape ‘‘The God Complex’ on a sunny summer afternoon in 2014 & I’ve been a fan ever since. His uptempo energy & inimitable flow on the project grabbed my full attention for 35 minutes. I’ve never been so swiftly impressed by a rapper in such a short space of time.
After signing to Soulection & Black Butter Records here in the UK, Goldlink dropped his 2nd mixtape titled “And After That, We Didn’t Talk” in 2015, which helped establish the rapper among the more traditional hip hop circles. Link finally released his debut album ‘At What Cost’ earlier this year, featuring the standout single Crew, which you can listen to here. The DMV rapper premiered the remix a few days ago, with an additional verse from La Flare himself; Gucci Mane!
Enjoy the fire tune of the day below.
