So we’re both from the DMV, so hearing the district (and Maryland) being shouted out in songs is pretty special. Even though there are a few mainstream D.C. artists, you don’t get all that many. That’s why I get hyped listening to GoldLink. The man constantly reps D.C. and hearing that in song is just great.
GoldLink was a 2015 XXL Freshman, and he just recently released his debut album At What Cost. He has a pretty distinctive voice and flow. I thought the new album was pretty good, so I wrote a review of it, that I might post here later. He’s still relatively unknown outside of the genre, but he is becoming more well known day by day.
Anyway, he’s great and you should check him out in this playlist I made.
