Since his 2014 album release of “The God Complex,” GoldLink has not fallen short of musical success.
A Washington, D.C. native, this young rapper, born D’Anthony Carlos brought his new track “Spectrum” into the world a few days ago without so much as a foreshadowed whisper. Upon its release, GoldLink also announced that it is the first single off his forthcoming sophomore album titled “And After That, We Didn’t Talk.” It is set to be out through Soulection on Nov. 13 of this year and will include leading artists like Galimatias and Medasin.
Featuring a vocal sample from Missy Elliot, “Spectrum” speaks to the life lessons of young love and loyalty, a theme we can expect to experience with his new album. The single was also produced by Louie Lastic, one of GoldLink’s common collaborators, whose synthetic work pairs well with the rapper’s verses and Tagalog narrative. The track itself embodies the “futuristic bounce” genre this up-and-coming artist has been parading through the Internet. This 22-year old hip hop artist is making a name for himself to say the least.
You can catch GoldLink open for Mac Miller on Oct. 21 in Indianapolis.
