Anderson .Paak Calls GoldLink “Jealous” And “Narcissistic” For Letter To Late Rapper Mac Miller

Anderson .Paak called out #GoldLink for a “narcissistic” and “jealous” letter he wrote to late rapper #MacMiller.

On Wednesday, .Paak addressed a letter GoldLink wrote to Miller, who passed away due to an overdose back in 2018. According to Newsweek, GoldLink and Miller toured together at the end of 2015 to promote Miller’s album ”GO:OD AM.” Less than a month after the the tour kicked off, GoldLink dropped his own project, a mixtape titled “And After That We Didn’t Talk.” .Paak appeared as a guest artist on the song “Unique.” That following year, Miller’s release, “The Divine Feminine,” also featured. Paak for the song “Dang!” in a collaboration that reportedly wasn’t in GoldLink’s favor.

But it remains unclear what prompted GoldLink’s post. However, in the letter, GoldLink alleged that Miller ripped off the style of his 2015 mixtape as source material for “The Divine Feminine.” He wrote: “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,” adding, “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.'”

Hours later, .Paak also took to social media and called the letter “unnecessary.” .Paak deleted his post, but not before the internet got ahold of it, making the two artists’ conversation go viral. .Paak also referred to GoldLink’s message as “disrespectful, narcissistic,” and “jealous.” He added, “since you felt it necessary to bring me up twice and my boy ain’t here to respond, ima say it like this. 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.”

GoldLink did share in his letter that the two weren’t on the best of terms but also mentioned that he told the artist three days prior to his death that he was proud of him. But .Paak mentioned that his issues should have been addressed while Miller was still alive.

“Whatever issues you had with Mac should have been addressed in person and ended there. What’s the point of bringing this up after his passing and disrespecting his name? You really woke up feeling like that was the move? That ain’t how you go about promoting whatever you got coming,” the 33-year-old musician continued.

He concluded: “Some things simply have nothing to do with you, but when you have a God Complex, I’m sure it’s easy to think everything comes from you or was inspired in some way. Whatever it is, I ain’t giving it no more energy. I pray you get back to the music and spreading good energy, ima do the same. Mac Miller forever, love to his family, and y’all have a blessed one.”
