GOLDLINK

Few rappers in recent memory have accomplished what GoldLink has. Like Chance The Rapper, he's cultivated a robust fanbase as an independent artist untethered to record labels or rap styles. Bolstered by a Rick Rubin cosign, he came on the scene in 2014 with the outlier "Sober Thoughts," which skewed closer to Aquemini-period OutKast than anything on the radio. The track connected in a tremendous way, as did his eclectic tape The God Complex and the countless shows he delivered in support of it and last year's And After That, We Didn't Talk. Where does GoldLink go from here? Too conventional for weird rap circles but too unconventional for J. Cole's mainstream, he's an emcee without a country. Suffering from success, he has said this tour will be his last for some time. Catch him while you still can. With Elhae. —Gary Suarez
