GoldLink and Rick Rubin are working together on a new project. In an interview with VSCO the leader of “future bounce” confirmed that they are working on new music but didn’t disclose when it would drop. GoldLink’s style is what caught the eye of the co-founder of Def Jam Records. “GoldLink connects progressive rap styles with cutting edge dance music,” Rubin says. “He bridges the electronic DJ culture with hip hop in a way we haven’t heard before.”
“I met him at the studio,” said the DMV native. “He was cool. Just conversated for like a couple hours, really. I just asked him things, he asked me things, we played each other tracks. His inspirations, my inspirations. We vibed really well. Honestly, I feel like the biggest thing I took away from that conversation was that there is no limit to what you can do. At all. That was like the main thing that I took from that. From that man starting in an NYU dorm to doing everything that he does now and he’s not even close to 60 years old? It’s crazy to me. So that just shows you that you can do whatever you wanna do if you just work hard enough and put your mind to it.”
He expressed his desire to work with Rubin with Pigeons & Planes earlier this year, which he stated “when it boils down to it, Rick is a fan of forward thinking music, and for him to be in to my music so early is just an honor. Hopefully we get to work.” If you haven’t heard of the young MC’s debut project The God Complex yet, take a listen here.
