2017 was an extremely big year for DMV rap hero GoldLink — and he didn’t even have to change his atypical quiet demeanor.
His breakout album, At What Cost, not only received a positive HipHopDX review but was also awarded The Most Slept-On Album Award. And the LP’s lead single, “Crew” (alongside Brent Faiyaz and Shy Glizzy) earned the 25-year-old MC his first Grammy nomination, his biggest splash on the Billboard 100 Chart (peaking at #45) and was snagged HipHopDX’s Collaboration of the Year Award.
After a successful string of tour runs and shiny RIAA plaques, GoldLink is back on the scene with “Good Friends,” a rap/R&B ditty that highlights all the sensational sin that guest feature Miguel excels in these days.
To bolster the future success of “Good Friends” (and its likely accompanying album), GoldLink is celebrating his success in his hometown D.C. streets with the announcement of “Three Nights on U Street,” a three-day concert series the nation capital’s iconic venue U Street Music Hall and the unveiling of his first-ever NPR Tiny Desk Concert.
Tickets for the July 25-28 “Three Nights on U Street” can be copped here and NPR Tiny Desk Concert can be enjoyed down below.
