Going With The Flow: A Conversation With GoldLink

I did a story with the young rising rap star, GoldLink. His talent has gained him critical praise as well as a mentorship from the legendary Rick Rubin. I think he represents the future of festival rap music that translates to fun live shows. We had to do the photoshoot in the harsh LA sunlight but I think it created some compelling photos. I did photography, conducted the interview and wrote an intro for a full story on HYPETRAK.

The new album seems more personal. Was it hard at all to put yourself out there like that?
It came pretty natural, putting myself out there like that. It was just something that I had to do. Just for me and for the sake of the people who listen to my music. It’s like, I never really let people in, so I felt like that was the perfect opportunity to let people in to where I came from and why I do the things that I do or why I make the music I make or why I sound the way I sound and how I feel the way I feel. It was very natural, but also very necessary.
