Top 101 Songs of 2017 & Playlist

GOLDLINK CREW FEAT BRENT FAIYAZ & SHY GLIZZY
At What Cost by GoldLink was one of my most anticipated albums coming into 2017 after GoldLink’s 2016 effort And After That We Didn’t Talk. GoldLink met and exceeded my expectations with At What Cost, dropping song of the year “Crew” with DMV-family Brent Faiyaz and Shy Glizzy and another top 20 song in “Summatime” featuring Wale and Radiant Children.
