GoldLink is currently catching a good amount of flack after posting an open letter of sorts to the late Mac Miller that, frankly, was one long backhanded compliment.
Many of Miller’s musical colleagues have fired back against his rambling commentary, and Twitter is also joined in on the fun in dropping some slander on the Washington, D.C. Area rapper.
In the post, the “Drop Got Friends” rapper addressed Mac’s death, which he said he wasn’t surprised about, and he went on to speak about the ups and downs of their friendship.
He started out by writing, “I’d be lying if I said I was surprised to hear that you died on us. Not because you were necessarily troubled, but because you were special and because of that, you were troubled.” GoldLink then added that they “weren’t always on the best terms,” but he went on to call Mac “family.” He also noted similarities between Mac’s 2016 album The Divine Feminine and his 2015 project And After That, We Didn’t Talk.
“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.'”
