Goldlink Disses Mac Miller, Anderson .Paak Responds
The artiste wrote a long caption on Instagram about Mac, which has taken fans by surprise. Speaking about their strained relationship, he stated that they weren’t on good terms, and accused Mac of stealing his music.
He admits that Miller gave him a good shot by taking him on his GO:OD AM tour where he played the rapper his And After That, We Didn’t Talk album. “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,” he wrote. He then revealed that Miller’s “Divine Feminine was an actual blueprint of And After That, We Didn’t Talk.” GoldLink says when he tried to reach Mac to address the similarities between the two albums, the latter never responded.
GoldLink still shouts him out later, saying “You were the first person brave enough to openly say ‘he’s dope,’ and gave me a platform.” But fans are mad at the rapper, saying it was written in poor taste.
Anderson .Paak, who is mentioned in the letter, has not taken kindly to the comments about his late friend. The rapper-singer-producer says he tried to reach GoldLink about the odd letter but to no avail. “I’m not a tough guy I’m not about negativity but this bugged me bad bro. I’ve called you and dm’d and you havnt responded. So since this is what you like to do in order to get attention we can do it like this. You’re not surprised huh? Well I’m in disbelief!!! If Devine feminine was such a blue print of your record then tell me where the plaques are for whatever your shit was called!!” he writes in his caption.
The Instagram post has since been deleted but you can check out the full text below.
“I would imagine yo weird ass posted up somewhere just like this when you decided to make that disrespectful, narcissistic, jealous grossly unnecessary post. Why you would do it I can’t even understand It . maybe your belt was wrapped around your Gotdamn waist too tight or maybe it was the choker cutting the circulation off to the brain but since you felt it necessary to bring me up twice and my boy ain’t here to respond ima say it like this.
You ain’t the first to make an album inspired by a relationship, you ain’t the first to make a song featuring Anderson .Paak but you are the first to disrespect my friend who is no longer here for absolutely no reason and I can’t stand for that. I’m not a tough guy I’m not about negativity but this bugged me bad bro. I’ve called you and dm’d and you havnt responded.
So since this is what you like to do in order to get attention we can do it like this. You’re not surprised huh? Well I’m in disbelief!!! If Devine feminine was such a blue print of your record then tell me where the plaques are for whatever your shit was called!! Mac brought your ass on tour and opened up his fan base to you when you had nothing and this the type of appreciation you give? You should of just been grateful for the op! Whatever issues you had with Mac should have been addressed in person and ended there.
what’s the point of bringing this up after his passing and disrespecting his name? You really woke up feeling like that was the move? That ain’t how you go about promoting whatever you got coming. Some things simply have nothing to do with you but when you have a God Complex im sure it’s easy to think everything comes from you or was inspired in some way. Whatever it is I ain’t giving it no more energy. I pray you get back to the music and spreading good energy, ima do the same. Mac Miller forever, love to his family and y’all have a blessed one.”
