Goldlink’s Unique Flow and Honest Lyricism Completed The Soulection Experience The D.C. Native Brings The Hits To L.A. For His Soulection Family
LOS ANGELES, CA-
“… With only one act left, Goldlink was scheduled to close out the day of festivities. In the past year, Goldlink has been notorious for cancelling festival appearances and shows (Outsidelands, Capitol Hill Block Party, This That, and the entire Australian leg of his tour just to name a few). However, I was nearly certain he wouldn’t cancel on his Soulection family, specifically due to the support they’ve given him over the years.
Awhile back, he performed at one of Soulection’s monthly events at the Regent in Downtown Los Angeles to a mostly drunk crowd (I’ll even admit that I’m surprised I remember the performance myself). Since then, he’s moved from underground rapper to having a chart topping hit with “Crew”.
His stage set up included a massive LED screen with a platform on top, ensuring that everyone in the Shrine could witness his performance. Goldlink performed a collection of his best songs so far: “Spectrum”, “Meditation”, “Herside Story”, etc. His discography is pretty impressive for only having released three albums. 2017’s At What Cost has features from everyone from Jazmine Sullivan to Wale to Steve Lacy.
Although he only dropped two songs last year there’s potential that he’s gearing up to release an album this year. The DC native’s unique flow and honest lyricism has helped to inspire some rappers to imitate him and is making the others sweat. After seeing Goldlink’s meteoric rise first-hand, it’s only fitting that he headlined the festival created by his friends…”
