Gold link took a hiatus from Twitter, but he’s back on the social media platform and unloaded a lot from his chest.
“Fukk u Sheck Wes,” the “Crew” rapper launches in a single tweet.
He continues: “I’m going to drink it Cactus and spit on your dirty nigga white t-shirt. Hahahahhahhahaha he is so ugly. And Sheck it’s not my fault that your men jumped up, got spanked and then you got shot. “
the Cactus The reference is likely linked to the fact that Sheck Wes is a subsidiary of Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack Records label and the drink launched by La Flame.
In a concluding tweet, Gold link announces his new album, which will arrive later this month. “Bloody White Walls B,” he adds. “Harlem World. I’ll see you tomorrow. The album will be released on June 18. Shoutout Bloody O.”
In addition to the fiery tweets, GoldLink is also speaking out against Sheck directly on his new joint, “White Walls,” which arrived today alongside the announcement of Link’s album.
In the middle of the song’s first verse, GoldLink says bluntly, “Fuck Sheck Wes.”
While the details surrounding the shooting that GoldLink alluded to in its tweets regarding a friend of Sheck Wes are unclear, the rhyming story’s tense history dates back to the artist “Mo Bamba” accused by R&B singer Justine Skye of ‘abuse. After dated Skye Sheck Wes, she was then in a relationship with GoldLink.
In October 2018, Skye released a song called “Build” during Domestic Violence Awareness Month, in which she spoke about her experience of domestic violence at the hands of a former partner. At the time, the singer did not reveal who she was referring to on the record, although fans tried to do the math and started accusing Sheck Wes via social media.
Months later, in February 2019, Skye confirmed Sheck was her attacker and accused the Harlem, NY native and his friends of stalking Skye and her new boyfriend. She even provided evidence that she was attacked by Sheck via text conversations between her and Travis Scott’s DJ and Sheck’s associate, Chase B, whom she contacted at a time when she feared for her life because of of Sheck’s actions. In the messages, Chase informs Skye that he is sending her help.
Sheck vehemently denied the allegations against him and in March 2019 it was reported that charges would not be filed against rapper due to lack of evidence.
That same year, GoldLink appeared to respond to Skye’s abuse allegations against Sheck Wes in a track he released titled “Justine’s Interlude-A Colors Show”. On the track, apparently named after the former Roc Nation artist, GoldLink rhymes: “So many stories about you and such a Harlem.” Later he says, “I’m sick of hearing if that nigga get your hands on you / I’m sick of trying to smile through the shit that affects us / And I’m overthinking if I’m here doing silly things. “
Sheck Wes does not appear to have publicly responded to GoldLink’s recent tweets.
XXL has contacted representatives for Sheck Wes and GoldLink for comment.
