One of the most promising artists out of the D.C. region, rapper GoldLink released his debut album today, the followup to 2014’s The God Complex.
GoldLink has been on a steady incline since his 2014 EP, working with hip-hop superproducer Rick Rubin and making XXL‘s Freshman Class issue, while popularizing the hip-hop subgenre he calls future bounce.
In a 2014 interview with Bandwidth, GoldLink said he didn’t pursue music as much as he defaulted to it.
“I didn’t want to go to school, and I couldn’t work a 9-to-5, and I didn’t know what to do,” the MC told Bandwidth’s Briana Younger. “So I decided to try rap.”
