Little Simz and GoldLink are killing the game.
Both rappers have garnered buzz in a short amount of time with their aesthetic and unique soundscapes.
While Simz, from the U.K., raps in a spirited and energetic style, the elusive GoldLink from D.C., delivers sincere storytelling — on the verge of nostalgic — both over experimental production.
Little Simz and GoldLink join me on this week’s episode of The Juice Podcast to discuss their upbringing, inspiration, major labels and more. Check it out below, and tell me what you think over on Twitter (@3rika).
Simz spoke candidly on the hindrance behind the “female rapper” label and starting her own record imprint, while GoldLink shared on the mentality behind his faceless persona and new sounds he’s exploring, from folk to country.
He’s writing and working on his follow-up to his eight-song project, God Complex, looking to drop next year. Simz will release the third installment of her Age 101: Drop series, Age 101: Drop 3 in December.
