Vince Staples has just dropped a new single, and it’s one of the best we’ve ever heard from him. The track is called “Are You With That?” and it’s the second track we’ve heard so far from his upcoming self-titled album.
While this track listens like a cool summer slow-jam, the lyrics depict an entirely different story. Vince, with impeccable smoothness, raps about growing up wanting to be a thug. The juxtaposition of the laidback production and performance alongside some pretty heavy lyrics is an impressive artistic feat from Vince. That artistic prowess is something that he’s displayed for the majority of his career. Vince Staples really has become one of the most compelling rappers in the game.
Vince Staples is set for release at the end of this week, July 9.
