Anderson Paak Lashes Out At Goldlink Over His ‘Narcissistic, Jealous’ Post About Mac Miller
Goldlink is ruffling some feathers, especially Anderson Paak’s after he shared a controversial post about late rapper Mac Miller.
In his post Tuesday (Nov. 26), Goldlink first suggested he wasn’t shocked to hear the news of the death of Mac Miller, who died from an accidental drug overdose on Sept. 7, 2018.
“Not because you were necessarily troubled, but because you were special and because of that, you were trouble.”
He said many rappers looked up to Miller as an independent artist but switched gears when he wrote,
“… I think what made you and I special is that we weren’t always on the best of terms. So I didn’ always have great things to say about you.”
He alluded to things going left between him and Miller after he played Miller his album while the two were on the GO:OD Am tour
While he said Miller was a fan of the album, including the single “Unique” featuring Anderson Paak, that was released under the Soulection label, he added,
“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.”
He also wrote,
“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.”
Still, despite their differences, Goldlink said he was proud of Mac Miller, and revealed he saw him just days before his untimely passing at Mac Miller’s home, where he spotted the plaque for Mac Miller’s Divine Feminine album. See his full post below.
It didn’t take long for Anderson Paak to catch wind of Goldlink’s post and address it. He went off on Goldlink in a post that has since been deleted. He wrote,
“I would imagine your weird a** 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 Gotd*** waist too tight or maybe the choker cutting the circulation off to the brain…”
He went on to say that while Goldlink isn’t the first to create an album about a relationship, he is the first to openly “disrespect” Mac Miller.
“I can’t stand for that…”
He added that he tried to reach out to Goldlink before responding publicly but Goldlink never got back to him.
“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 ws such a blue print of your record then tell me where the plaques are for whatever your s*** was called!! Mac brought your a** on tour and opened up his fan base to you when you had nothing and this the type of appreciation you give?”
He went on to say that Goldlink should have talked to Mac Miller in person, and definitely should not have spoken out about it after his passing.
