Anderson .Paak Checks GoldLink for “Disrespectful…Unnecessary Post” About Mac Miller
by Site Manager
Anderson .Paak has written a scathing response to an Instagram post GoldLink wrote about deceased rapper Mac Miller.
The post .Paak was responding to was uploaded by GoldLink on Tuesday, November 26th. In the lengthy post, GoldLink talked about his relationship with Mac, which seemed to be complicated. (GoldLink opened for Mac during the GO:OD AM tour in 2015.)
GoldLink began the post by saying, “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.”
At one point GoldLink wrote that he and Mac “weren’t always on the best terms” and that he didn’t always have great things to say about” the late rapper. This, according to GoldLink, was due to the fact that he felt Mac copied his 2015 And After That, We Didn’t Talk album for The Divine Feminine, which dropped in 2016. GoldLink mentions how the first single from his album was “Unique,” which featured Anderson .Paak, and how Mac’s Divine Feminine was “Dang!,” which also featured Anderson .Paak.
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.”
