Anderson .Paak Calls Out GoldLink for “Disrespectful, Narcissistic” Mac Miller Post
In a now-deleted Instagram post he uploaded on Tuesday night (Nov. 26), the 2016 XXL Freshman goes off on the Baltimore rapper for his "unnecessary" open letter to the late lyricist.
"@goldlink I would imagine yo weird ass posted up somewhere just like this when you decided to make that disrespectful, narcissistic, jealous grossly unnecessary post," Anderson said of GoldLink's letter, which is one that implies that Miller took elements of Link's And After That, We Didn't Talk mixtape to make his The Divine Feminine album. "Why would you do it I can't even understand It."
"Maybe your belt was wrapped around your Gotdamn waist too tight or maybe it was the choker cutting off the circulation off to the brain but since you felt it necessary to bring me up twice and my boy ain't here to respond ima say it like this," continues .Paak, who previously collaborated with GoldLink and Mac Miller.
.Paak continued, "You ain't the first to make an album inspired by a relationship, you ain't the first to make a song featuring Anderson .Paak but you are the first to disrespect my friend who is no longer here for absolutely no reason and I can't stand for that."
The Ventura rapper's heated response came less than a day after GoldLink posted a lengthy open letter to Miller on Instagram. In the caption, GoldLink asserts that Mac Miller crafted his 2016 album The Divine Feminine after hearing Link's And After That, We Didn't Talk project.
"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," GoldLink said in his open letter. "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'.
As of this report, GoldLink has not responded to .Paak. Check out his open letter to Mac Miller below.
