DMV native GoldLink drops off a new track called “Creep,” a rework of the TLC classic inspired by their recently released album.
I’ve heard this kid’s name floating around for the past year or so, but admittedly, this is the first time I’ve sat down and pressed play – and I’m glad I did. GoldLink is a 20-year-old spitter who, at least on “Creep,” sounds like a blend of Andre 3000 and Chance The Rapper. He spits with a gentle ferocity, and he’s got the personality to back the bars. This is an addicting listen.
As a bonus, a few seconds of a chopped version of Ginuwine’s “In Those Jeans” comes in before the song comes to a close… and it’ simply beautiful.
Stream and download below, and stay tuned for more. I’m looking forward to seeing what GoldLink has planned for the future.
