GoldLink, Washington, D.C.’s sensational hip hop artist is bringing his signature sounds to the Paradise Rock Club!
GoldLink (birth name D’Anthony Carlos) was born in Washington, D.C. in 1993 and is a rapper. While his musical style can be broadly classified as hip hop, it also includes elements of R&B, electronic, many other genres. He calls it “indescribable” and he said in an interview, “It’s like taking the essence of ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s music, what we love about it and then modernizing it. It has to come to me. If it never comes, then I never rap. That’s it. It’s really weird...When I get into a booth, I just go somewhere else. I’m 100% sober. Don’t drink. Don’t smoke or nothing.” He released his debut mix tape (The God Complex) in 2014 and it received widespread critical acclaim. Renowned hip hop magazine XXL included him in the 2015 Freshman class (an annual list featuring 10 up and coming artists) and his next mix tape (And After That, We Didn't Talk) hit #21 on Billboard's Top Hip Hop and R&B Albums chart. He's had a stellar career with 1 studio album, 2 mix tapes, 8 singles, and he’s also collaborated with many renowned artists such as Marsha Ambrosius, Shy Glizzy, Kaytranada, Jazmine Sullivan, BMB Spacekid, Christian Rich, George Maple, LEISURE, and AlunaGeorge.
