For the unfamiliar, D’Anthony Carlos a.k.a. GoldLink officially began his journey in music after graduating high school in Maryland when he was recording and dropping singles on Soundcloud in 2013. The 23-year-old attracted the world’s attention after releasing his debut mixtape The God Complex back in 2014. He managed to pique the interest of the legendary Rick Rubin in 2015, and began to collaborate with him in the studio. Later that same year, GoldLink impressed the masses with his debut album After That, We Didn’t Talk.
Since signing to RCA Records last year, GoldLink has surrounded himself with extraordinary talent to cook up some very noteworthy tunes. After working with the likes of Canadian band BADBADNOTGOOD and revered producer Kaytranada, the kid is back in the studio working on his sophomore LP. At the top of the year, the “Unique” rapper released his first single of 2017 entitled “Rough Soul.” The heatfelt song is based on a past fling that he had with a former lover. Although the single has garnered a decent buzz, Goldlink claims his forthcoming album, which remains untitled at the moment, will be “completely away from that.”
“It’s more about the city and where I’m from,” he said. “I feel like even just like in general the DMV artist are not really slept on, but they’re slept on because there’s no history of where it comes from. For example, if 21 savage comes out its so interesting because we’ve seen Atlanta do this over and over again. Their support system is so strong but we don’t have that in D.C. so it’s like people don’t understand how much we influence everyone and everybody, but we don’t get any credit for it. So the project is really talking about the history of where I’m from and talking about it in so many different tones and lights. The point of the matter is making parallels so that it’s a worldlier concept.”
The project announcement comes ahead of a run of spring shows that will find GoldLink touring alongside Little Dragon, as well as shows with Denzel Curry and Kaytranada, in addition to his performances at Coachella in April.
