GoldLink Fights for Love in His New “Meditation” Video
GoldLink is a lover, not a fighter...but don't test him. The DMV rapper dropped the music video for his latest single "Meditation" this week (Aug. 21) and proved he wasn't afraid to throw down for a girl if need be. The visual centers around a smoke-filled party where GoldLink locks eyes with a beauty across the dance floor. The only problem is, this baddie is whisked away by another guy before the rapper can shoot his shot. GoldLink and the girl later meet up outside the party for a tender moment alone, but things get crazy when the rhymer gets challenged to a fight over her. Jazmine Sullivan handles the soulful hook and there's even a cameo from Ray J in the nearly five-minute clip.
"Puttin' all my pride and my girls to the side/'Cause I still see ya, I still see ya/Smokin' all my weed, bend the corners in the streets/I can still see ya, I still see ya," rhymes 'Link in the first verse.
The KAYTRANADA-produced track is off 'Link's latest project At What Cost, which dropped back in March. The 14-track project, which also features guest appearances from Wale, Steve Lacy and Mya, serves as a love letter to the rapper's hometown of D.C. GoldLink's lead single off the album, "Crew" featuring Brent Faiyaz and Shy Glizzy was certified gold in sales earlier this month and is currently at No. 25 on Billboard's R&B and Hip-Hop charts.
