D.C. rapper GoldLink is known for being as enigmatic IRL as he is on the mic. His most recent album And After That We Didn’t Talk granted us a peek behind the curtain, but left us with more questions than answers (and a whole lot of grooves).
Perhaps as a way to elaborate the themes of the project more clearly, Link has dropped three short videos, each a collaboration with director Rubberband and British poet Kojey Radical that attempt to fill in the blanks of an elaborately heart-rending story. Akin to the album’s varied feelings on love, check out the videos below and the themes elaborated in each one.
Pink: the memory of someone you didn’t deserve. Someone too good for you that you wronged just by being with them.
Blue: the remembering of an obsession. A relationship you will inevitably, always carry a piece of. A relationship that fragments and damages you and leaves its indelible mark.
Orange: Equilibrium. The moment where all the noise fades away and you feel absolutely connected to that other person.
