GoldLink’s issues with Cactus Jack rapper Sheck Wes date back several years, but they’re once again coming to the forefront thanks to new music and a series of tweets. GoldLink hopped on Twitter late Wednesday to take some shots at his rival while announcing his new album, HARAM. He also dropped the project’s lead single, ‘White Walls," where he disses Sheck.
He first name-checked Sheck on Twitter, writing:
He also disses Sheck on “White Walls,” rapping:
F-ck Sheck Wes, yeah, yeah
I don’t press, yeah, yeah
The two rappers first clashed in 2019 when GoldLink released the song “Justine’s Interlude” addressing rumors that Sheck Was had committed domestic violence against singer Justine Skye, GoldLink’s girlfriend at the time. Skye publicly accused Sheck of domestic violence soon afterwards and filed a restraining order against the Harlem rapper, although the Los Angeles District Attorney later declined to purse charges citing a lack of evidence.
Sheck Wes has maintained his innocence against domestic violence accusations, but hasn’t commented directly on GoldLink’s latest shots. Sheck’s career is no longer what it once was, with the rapper failing to find a significant follow-up hit to his breakout single, “Mo Bamba,” despite the continued backing of Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack label.
