Vince Staples continues the oceanic theme, following the conclusion of his Life Aquatic tour with Kilo Kish, the Long Beach rapper announced he will be dropping off an album in June titled Big Fish Theory. Staples has been dropping nothing but heat for a few years and Big Fish Theory doesn’t look like it will be changing that trend. In the video Staples dons a Stone Island track suit with a fresh pair of Chucks while a shark ominously circles his sinking ship. Check out the visuals for the song below.

After several months of silence Long Beach native Vince Staples is back with a timely new single. “BagBak” takes on a slightly political tone over a beat driven by bouncy bass.  Compared to past releases “BagBak” is relatively tame and maintains an upbeat feel throughout despite the subject matter. Check the song out below via Apple Music.

Vince Staples has been on a roll since he first touched a mic. After the release of one of the top album of last year, Summertime 06, and the EP Prima Donna last week, which was enjoyable but altogether too short, he drops off a short film to accompany the project. The short film, directed by Nabil, shows Vince leaving the set of a typical rap music video, getting into a cab and checking in at the Prima Donna hotel. Then things get crazy. The video seems to be a testament to the struggles of balancing celebrity and sanity. Check it out below.

After the release of his killer 2-part album Summertime ’06 in 2015, the hype around the name Vince Staples has grown exponentially. With an increased fan-base and higher expectations, the stakes for his newest EP Prima Donna were much higher. The anticipation ended today when Staples released the album to Apple Music and Spotify. Prima Donna has the same driving, up-beat, but dark production that we got from Summertime ’06. Staples proves his consistency while offering new quality music. Stream Prima Donna below.
