Ever since GoldLink first broke our door down with “On&On” back in 2013, we’ve been following the DMV native’s every move. From The God Complex to to his impressive take on Kendrick’s “The Heart pt.2” – and just about every loosie since.
Today, GoldLink’s stock rises as it’s been revealed he and the legendary Rick Rubin are working on a collaborative project!
Although no details have been released, the two were highlighted in VSCO’s new feature – where Rubin speaks highly of GoldLink’s distinct style and ability to “move hip hop forward in new, unexpected ways.”
GoldLink adds a new chapter to Rick’s storied musical legacy. Instrumental to hip hop’s beginnings, Rick is now invested in seeing it advance. He says, “GoldLink connects progressive rap styles with cutting edge dance music. He bridges the electronic DJ culture with hip hop in a way we haven’t heard before.” It’s GoldLink’s ability “to move hip hop forward in new, unexpected ways” that Rick says drew him to GoldLink’s style, in addition to his voice and charisma.
For GoldLink, working with Rick Rubin “has opened the floodgates of creativity so wide” that he feels there are no limits. He’s striving to be bigger and working to “restlessly perfect” the quality of his music. As Rick says, “If it’s good, it’s undeniable.”
