Anderson .Paak slams GoldLink for being ‘disrespectful, narcissistic, jealous’ after he penned an open letter accusing late star Mac Miller of copying his record

Anderson .Paak is coming to the defense of late rapper Mac Miller after he was accused of copying another musician’s album.

GoldLink, whose real name is D’Anthony Carlos, shared a supposed ‘tribute’ to Mac Miller on social media on Tuesday but fans were quick to notice the passive aggressive tone toward the deceased star.

In response, singer and rapper Anderson .Paak (Brandon Paak Anderson) slammed GoldLink for the post which he called ‘disrespectful, narcissistic, jealous grossly unnecessary.’  

In defense: Anderson .Paak is coming to the defense of late rapper Mac Miller after another rapper, GoldLink, accused Mac of copying his record for 2016's The Divine Feminine

Anderson .Paak echoed many fans of Mac Miller when he expressed his fury about the accusations and the fact that Link had the audacity to ‘disrespect my friend who is no longer here for absolutely no reason.’  

GoldLink, who toured with Mac on the GO:OD AM tour began his lengthy post with an odd assessment of Miller’s untimely passing: ‘I’d be lying if I said I was surprised to hear that you died on us. 

‘Not because you were necessarily troubled, but because you were special and because of that, you were troubled.’ 

After complimenting the Self Care singer by calling him ‘the archetypal rapper all of us wanted to be’ and ‘a kid with really bright eyes about life,’ the post took a darker turn.

'Divine Feminine was an actual blueprint of 'and after that we didn't talk,'' he claimed. 'Your single was called 'Dang!' Ft. Anderson Paak…you had Souelction support you on the Divine Feminine tour and when I tried to contact you, about anything at all…you never hit me.' (Pictured: GoldLink in November)

‘I think what made you and I special is that we weren’t always on the best terms. So I didn’t always have great things to say about you,’ GoldLink wrote. 

He claimed that he played his record for Miller, titled ‘and after that we didn’t talk’, when they were on tour together and Mac thought ‘it was absolutely incredible.’

‘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,’ GoldLink claimed. ‘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.’

'I think what made you and I special is that we weren't always on the best terms. So I didn't always have great things to say about you,' GoldLink wrote.

Furious: Fans of Mac Miller were upset about the accusations and the fact that Link went after the late star knowing he couldn't defend himself

GoldLink accused Miller of copying his album down to a single featuring Anderson .Paak for Mac’s The Divine Feminine.

‘Divine Feminine was an actual blueprint of ‘and after that we didn’t talk,’ he claimed. ‘Your single was called ‘Dang!’ Ft. Anderson Paak…you had Souelction support you on the Divine Feminine tour and when I tried to contact you, about anything at all…you never hit me.’

The post went on vacillate between complimentary and accusatory towards Miller, who obviously couldn’t defend himself.

Miller died September 7, 2018 at his Studio City, California home of an accidental overdose from a lethal mixture of fentanyl, alcohol and cocaine.

‘Why you would do it I can’t even understand It . maybe your belt was wrapped around your Gotdamn waist too tight or maybe it was the choker cutting the circulation off to the brain but 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.

''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?' (Paak pictured in November)

Addressing some of Link’s accusations and comments point by point Paak said he was in ‘disbelief.’

He retorted that GoldLink should have been ‘grateful’ for the opportunity that Mac gave him by bringing him on tour and introducing him to his fan base. 

‘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.’

He ended his response by saying that Link had a ‘God Comlex’ and sending love to Mac and his family. 

Since Miller’s death last year, three men have been arrested in connection with allegedly providing him the tainted drugs that took his life.
