When XXL released their “Freshmen of the Year” cover a couple of weeks ago, I came across a name that I had previously not even heard of. This of course stirred up a lot of curiosity inside of me , like how could I not know this person? I’m supposed to be keeping tabs with all the upcoming spitters in the game right now. This little mystery went by the name of Goldlink, and I was determined to unravel it song by song.
To me this should be Kanye West ft. Vic Mensa lol. Don’t get me wrong, this video is really entertaining but this just sounds and looks like a Kanye West song. Generic trap beats ,mediocre bars and Vic Mensa actually let Kanye overshadow him in his own song. It seems like he went to the studio and just did what Kanye wanted. The video is aggressive and unusual and I’ve seen many youtube comments saying they’re only watching it to see Kanye. If the attention is what you wanted Vic, then there you have it but I’m not impressed! #Rule 1 don’t change your style to try and get more fans, why? You might end up losing your die hard fans in the process and also, we already have one Kanye we don’t need two.
My relationship with this German born producer and DJ is really funky. A few years ago I was tweeting “What is a Zedd?” and now I’m such a huge fan of his work. When he dropped his sophomore LP, “True Colors” , I couldn’t wait to hear his growth from debut album “Clarity” which in itself gained him millions of fans and made him a house-hold name in Electronic Dance music today.
One of fashion’s biggest nights, the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit or simply, the Met Gala was held last night. The theme this year was “China Looking Through the Glass” and here are some of our fave looks.
