Battle of the 1Bands


Where the intersections of the DMV (DC, Maryland and Virginia) collide, 25 year old GoldLink is a direct product. With his debut studio album releasing in March 2017, At What Cost (Squaaash Club/RCA), 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.

At What Cost has received critical acclaim with the lead single “Crew” ft. Brent Faiyaz and Shy Glizzy charting on the Spotify Viral 50 chart. They performed the song for the first time together when GoldLink performed at Coachella in April 2017.
