Discover the Artist: GoldLink

The American rapper is kicking off the 'Diaspora' tour at The Academy in Dublin on November.

‘Discover the Artist’ is our new blog series where we introduce you to artists you might not have heard of yet… but need to listen to.


Genre: Rap and Hip-Hop

From: Washington, United States

Latest Release: ‘Diaspora’ – June 2019.

Style: GoldLink aims to synthesize his environment’s litany of influences and inspirations into something unique, singular, and altogether his own.

With his debut studio album At What Cost (Squaaash Club/RCA)–helmed by the monstrous single “Crew”–released in March 2017, he’s done just that. By merging the sensibilities of go-go with the African diaspora, he’s done what hip-hop has done from its inception: repurpose what’s available into something magical.

Upcoming Show: 13 November 2019 at The Academy, Dublin. Tickets on sale here.

If you like: Smino, Jay Prince, EarthGang, Isaiah Rashad, Nxworries.
