GoldLink probably had this joint ready to go -- it was always going to be popular -- and make the clever decision to reach out and get the buzziest artist at the moment, Tyler, The Creator, to jump onboard. That's a fine place to be in as a musician.
I'm glad to be covering GoldLink again. In classic "I found it before you because my love of music rivals only with the gods" fashion, here's me covering GoldLink in 2014. That was around the time I was still getting mail from his manager.
I wouldn't say it was inevitable that he would succeed, because that totally undermines the work that must've gone into getting there. Glad he's there. Glad we have "U Say."
