GoldLink om Mac Miller: “We Weren’t Always On The Best Terms”

UPDATE: Anderson .Paak ger svar på tal: “…tell me where the plaques are for whatever your sh*t was called!!”



UPDATE 28/11:


Somebody had to do it. Och varför inte Macs goda vän Anderson .Paak. I ett inlägg går han nu till attack mot GoldLink efter det omtalade inlägget om att Mac Miller skulle kopierat hans stil. I ett nu raderat inlägg skrev han bland annat:


“@goldlink I would imagine yo weird ass posted up somewhere just like this when you decided to make that disrespectful, narcissistic, jealous grossly unnecessary post. Why you would do it I can’t even understand It . maybe your belt was wrapped around your Gotdamn waist too tight or maybe it was the choker cutting the circulation off to the brain but since you felt it necessary to bring me up twice and my boy ain’t here to respond ima say it like this.”


“You ain’t the first to make an album inspired by a relationship, you ain’t the first to make a song featuring Anderson .Paak but you are the first to disrespect my friend who is no longer here for absolutely no reason and I can’t stand for that.”


Men han var inte klar där. Han påpekade också att Mac tog med GoldLink på turné och att om han nu kopierade hans stil så borde GoldLink fått mer uppmärksamhet.


“I’m not a tough guy I’m not about negativity but this bugged me bad bro. I’ve called you and dm’d and you havnt responded. So since this is what you like to do in order to get attention we can do it like this. You’re not surprised huh? Well I’m in disbelief!!! If Devine feminine was such a blue print of your record then tell me where the plaques are for whatever your sh*t was called!! Mac brought your ass on tour and opened up his fan base to you when you had nothing and this the type of appreciation you give?”


“You should of just been grateful for the op! Whatever issues you had with Mac should have been addressed in person and ended there. what’s the point of bringing this up after his passing and disrespecting his name? You really woke up feeling like that was the move? That ain’t how you go about promoting whatever you got coming.”


Precis Paak oftast gör så avslutade han ändå i en positivare anda.


“Some things simply have nothing to do with you but when you have a God Complex im sure it’s easy to think everything comes from you or was inspired in some way. Whatever it is I ain’t giving it no more energy. I pray you get back to the music and spreading good energy, ima do the same. Mac Miller forever, love to his family and y’all have a blessed one.”





I ett långt och något märkligt inlägg på Instagram har GoldLink nu gått ut och adresserat sin relation till bortgångna rapparen Mac Miller. De båda var goda vänner och turnerade bland annat tillsammans på den senares GO:OD AM-turné. I det skriver han bland annat att de båda inte alltid var överens, men att man hade en god relation. Det framkommer även en del underliggande agg som GoldLink uppenbarligen har haft, och kanske fortfarande har, mot Mac då han insinuerar att han skulle ha kopierat hans stil på albumet “The Divine Feminine” från 2016.


“I always thought you drove yourself insane about your own music. So much that, you would adopt styles as homage to those around you that you loved. That’s where our problem started. Divine Feminine was an actual blueprint of And After That, We Didn’t Talk. Your single was called “Dang!” Ft. Anderson Paak…you had Souelction support you on the Divine Feminine tour and when I tried to contact you, about anything at all…you never hit me. A close mutual friend ended up just hittin’ my DJ saying ‘listen man, we love Link, but we just had to do what we had to do'”, skriver han bland annat.


Inlägget möttes av fans och andra med stor skepticism på grund av hur tvetydigt och uppenbart respektlöst det är mot en person som gått bort.


Anderson .Paak är en som reagerat på inlägget i kraftfulla ordalag:









Den annars begåvade artisten gick nyligen ut och även kritiserade Grammy Awards där han bland annat skrev:


“I am no longer participating in that wild ass slave ass political ass cheating ass game any longer. The lack of relevance you have just solidified today is unbelievable. Tyler [The Creator] got one fuckin nomination in a category he didn’t even participate in knowing damn well he deserved album of the year.”



I juni släppte GoldLink sitt senaste album “Diaspora” och på lördag 30:e november står han på scen i Stockholm då han gör en slutsåld spelning på Debaser Strand för sin “Diaspora 2019 European Tour”.
