In the rap industry, the west coast has held a major stranglehold for quite some time. There is no doubt that OG’s like Ice Cube, Ice-T, Snoop Dogg, Eazy E, E-40 and many others paved the way for those who followed them in the game. Vincent Staples is certainly descended from all of them in one way or another. Beginning in 2011, the Long Beach, CA artist have been putting some serious pressure on himself, and now the 28-year-old is on full throttle with his self-titled fourth studio album. 

Vincent Staples decided to visit the LA Leakers in order to spit some infectious bars to promote his upcoming album. The singer takes on Dr. Dre’s classic instrumental “Xxplosive”, which he uses to unapologetically spit words about growing up in LA, nodding 50 Cent, and even discussing street politics and social justice. 

Vince has been in rap for what feels like forever, and his contributions continue to remind us why he’s garnered such a following. While he hasn’t reached the top of the charts like his peers (Tyler, The Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, and a few more of his Odd Future colleagues), his authenticity really shines through his songs. It is for this reason that his fans will forever ride for him. 

According to the rapper, in an Interview Magazine interview he spoke about how he had to grow into being comfortable with his music and performing: “I hadn’t been used to feeling comfortable at all. Making music wasn’t my thing. Because I was in a strange position, I was uninspired. It wasn’t easy when I first started doing shows. It would be impossible for me to look at the crowd mid-performance as I would be checking my phone.”
