    GoldLink dropped off his full-length debut, At What Cost, over two years ago. The RCA-released effort boasted collaborators like Kaytranada and Steve Lacy, as well as earned GoldLink a Grammy nomination. Now, the Washington, DC-bred rapper is prepping his follow-up in Diaspora. 

    The new album is due for arrival June 12th. A tracklist is still under wraps, however, its revealed artwork (seen below) features singer Jazmine Sullivan as photographed by Hailey Baldwin.

    GoldLink teased Diaspora with “Zulu Screams” earlier this month. The MC has now shared a second cut, “Joke Ting”, which features the R&B vocals of London’s Ari PenSmith.
