First, Goldlink took some time to address recent allegations of domestic abuse made against Sheck Wes. During a 2018 interview on The Breakfast Club, Justine Skye discussed a recent emotionally abusive relationship she had with a rising rapper. While she did not name the artist, most fans believe the artist to be Sheck Wes. During “Justine’s Interlude”, Goldlink addressed the matter by rapping, “I think it’s funny how blogs talk/Funny how many shows I had went to where models walk/So many stories ‘bout you and so-and-so who from Harlem/It ain’t too many from Harlem, so take a guess.” He later came to the situation by saying, “Tired of fancy dinners, I’m tired of diamond ballin’/I’m tired of hearin’ ‘bout if this n*gga put hands on you/Tired of tryna smile through sh*t that’s affectin’ us/And I get to overthinkin’ if I’m here messin’ up.”
Later in the song, Goldlink made reference to his last conversation with Mac Miller. Goldlink rapped, “Mac died and I couldn’t talk, couldn’t bear the thought/Two days before it, we was talkin’ ‘bout love and loss/Then he mentioned Ariana’s mom and newer songs/Never told a soul, but I knew he was dead all along/You do somethin’ to me.”
