GoldLink has come through to deliver his new single “White Walls,” which arrives complete with some trippy visuals and a hard-hitting beat by Rio. It’s certainly an interesting direction for the Washington artist, who slides over the urgent synthesizers with frantic energy.
“My hotel bigger than your house, rode to the bounce, sell ’em by the ounce,” he raps, his voice tinged in slight overdrive. “I don’t do that, sell by the pound / Sex with me, go four rounds.” GoldLink opts to take a laid-back approach insofar as the song’s structure is concerned, though that’s no to say he’s resting on his laurels. Case in point, a dagger aimed firmly at Sheck Wes and tossed with serious intent.
Though Link only delivers a single verse, it’s evident that he’s in an interesting place creatively. Overall, “White Walls” feels closer to a warm-up for things to come, and one has to wonder if he’ll be exploring this sound further on his upcoming album Haram, which is set to land on June 18th. Check out the tracklist for that below, and be sure to sound off with your comments if you’re excited for new GoldLink.
