Watch Vince Staples' Hilarious 'Hot Ones' Interview While Eating Spicy Wings

Vince Staples Hot Ones

It’s no secret Vince Staples is one of the best personalities in music today. In addition to having one of our favorite albums so far this year, he also just delivers one of the best “Hot Ones” interviews where interviewees try different hot sauces while doing an interview.

Per usual, Vince is hilarious throughout the 20-minute episode. Vince knows his shit with hot sauce and discusses various topics including the best things to do in Long Beach, Videogames, doing Yelp reviews and more. He delivers a ton of quotable lines including some gems “Chipotle is gentrification and they killin people”, and “whale watching is lowkey sad though, you feel like you invading their personal space”. Watch the whole episode and enjoy!

Listen To Vince Staples New 'Big Fish Theory' Album Ft. Kendrick Lamar, Flume & More

Big Fish Theory

Vince Staples has just released his sophomore album Big Fish Theory and further demonstrates his consistency and versatility. The album includes previously released singles "BagBak," "Big Fish," and "Rain Come Down."

While the album is only 35 minutes long, he is able to fit in tons of hooks, verses, and collaborators to make a tight, concise project. Features on the album include Kendrick Lamar, Flume, Kučka, Damon Albarn (of Gorillaz), Ty Dolla $ign, and many more. The album is much more dance-heavy than his debut, and Vince really shows that he can rap over anything. The prominent basslines take the forefront of many of the beats, backed by heavy synths and production unlike any other hip-hop album this year.

Album standout "Yeah Right" features technical verses from Kendrick Lamar and Vince Staples over a wild beat made by Flume & SOPHIE, that sounds more like "Wall Fuck" than anything else Flume has done recently. Kučka brings the track together with a bridge about authenticity before Kendrick's dizzying verse that will immediately have you hitting repeat to hear all of his flow switches and rhyming patterns. We highly recommend the album from start to finish and will have this on repeat all summer. Enjoy!

Vince Staples Drops Impressive New Single "Rain Come Down" Off Upcoming Album

Vince Staples Rain Come Down

Vince Staples recently announced his sophomore album and he has just shared the third single from the project, which lives up to the high bar he set with the first two. "Rain Come Down" follows previous tracks "BagBak" and "Big Fish," and if these are an indicator of the quality for an album we are due for a very strong project.

Ty Dolla $ign's melodic crooning starts the song with a walking bassline behind him, and then Vince Staples comes in to spit hard verses behind vocal modulation. The Long Beach rapper shows off his lyricism and ability to paint a clear mental image with his words in both of his verses. Vince runs the first verse back again, creating a hypnotic, inescapable feeling while Ty Dolla $ign splits them up with a memorable hook.  

Vince Staples' album Big Fish Theory drops on June 23rd through Def Jam, and we can't wait to hear what else he has in store for us on the album he calls "my Afro-Futurism." Enjoy!
