Soulection never ceases to deliver on-point music and today I want to share with y'all my most recent favorite from GoldLink. New Black is an uptempo, introspective track that delivers silky word-play, feel good melodies, and, most importantly, a closer look into GoldLinks debut album 'And After That We Didn't Talk' which comes out this Friday.
- GoldLink's word-play is silky smooth from "I got level headed when I left to beseech the sea to see" to the bippity-bippity-bop-bop. For only seriously rapping for two years GoldLink's rhymes are incredibly poetic.
- The message at the end is equally on-point. GoldLink is a relatively positive voice in hip-hop. You're not going to hear him rapping about all his bottles in the club or his missed calls. Hip-hop needs a voice like GoldLink to add a refreshing change of pace for the genre.
- The production is classical hip-hop and the sampling is tastefully done. Shoutout to Tom Misch and Jordan Rakei for making the beat boppable!
Listen to New Black via Soulection below and don't sleep on GoldLink's debut album 'And After That We Didn't Talk' dropping on 11/6.
