GoldLink met de grond gelijk gemaakt nadat hij Mac Miller beschuldigt van diefstal
Ruim een jaar geleden kwam er veel te vroeg een einde aan het leven van Mac Miller en GoldLink besloot dat het nu een goed moment was om hem te beschuldiging van diefstal. In zijn open brief op social media bespreekt hij de goede relatie die hij met Mac had, hoe ze elkaar altijd gesupport hebben en dat hij niet verrast was toen hij hoorde dat zijn collega was overleden aan een overdosis. So far so good, maar daarna ging het mis.
GoldLink schrijft in zijn brief dat Mac Miller zich liet inspireren door artiesten om zich heen, maar bij GoldLink te ver ging. Volgens de Crew rapper heeft Mac het album And After That, We Didn’t Talk gekopieerd heeft met zijn Divine Feminine album. Volgens GoldLink is dat waar de problemen tussen de twee begonnen zijn.
Het duurde niet lang voordat GoldLink het hele internet over zich heen kreeg. Vooral Anderson .Paak ging los op de rapper terwijl we .Paak nog nooit uit zijn slof hebben zien schieten. Zie hier de brief en een aantal reacties.

Mac Miller 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 your peak, you were the archetypal rapper all of us wanted to be; which was independent. But also just a kid with really bright eyes about life. I’ll keep it short because I want to continue our conversation for when it’s my time to go. But I think what made you and I special is that we weren’t always on the best terms. So I didn’t always have great things to say about you. When we were on the GO:OD AM tour, I played you my album “and after that we didn’t talk”, and you thought it was absolutely incredible. I released it under the“Soulection” label and the single for my album was called “Unique” ft. Anderson Paak, and that was your favorite song at the time. You loved it so much that you made the entire tour party listen to it, and surprised me with a cake after my set. 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. And Mac said if he needs a verse at anytime, he got him” We are family, you could always call me. Afterwards, we seen each other at Coachella, and you put your head down like an innocent child, but I told you to pick it up and I hugged you like the brother you are to me. You were the first person brave enough to openly say “he’s dope.”, and gave me a platform. That meant more to me than anything else. 3 days before you died, I remember pullin up on you at the crib, walking in the house and seeing the Divine Feminine album plaque on the wall. I was so proud of you and what YOU created for yourself. And I’m forever grateful for that

I dont have a problem with Goldlink feeling that way, and needing to get that off his chest…but the lack of self awareness to post it to the public pic.twitter.com/ly5hyvIb1p

We have side-by-side, dated recordings showing Goldlink lifted Smino’s verse on a collab song that Smino never cleared to release. Goldlink reused lines, but not his own lines — he stole phrases from Smino.
Writing a letter like this to someone who’s passed is weirdo territory. https://t.co/UQloiFjZyh

@GoldLink claims Mac Miller stole the concept of ‘The Divine Feminine’…
Let’s not forget…

what upsets me the most about this Goldlink situation
1. Mac isn’t here to defend himself
2. that shit is PUBLIC on the internet which means Mac’s family will likely see it
3. Mac did so much to help this dude/his career and now he comes out of no where with this disrespect

This whole letter is disrespectful and weird. Something about this seems incredibly off. What the fuck was Goldlink thinking? https://t.co/TJT48oPVbn

Goldlink might’ve just CREATED the Memorial Post Triple Crown. He simultaneously gave props to Mac Miller, spoke ill of him AND bragged about himself being the bigger person. That’s otherworldly talent.
