Rap Life

Is there anything Vince Staples can’t do? You might have found yourself wondering as much after watching the Long Beach MC act in the hilarious Netflix sitcom that bears his name, and before you get a chance to recover from yuks, Staples is back with a stellar collection of new music. The album is called Dark Times, and Staples is as agile as ever across it, painting pictures in rhyme like he does on the Michael Uzowuru- and RAHM ⚉-produced “Black&Blue”: “My people product of poverty/I don't know why they would play with us/Choppers in luxury vehicles/Living like Saudi Arabians.” The mind of Vince Staples, ladies and gentlemen. Listen to “Black&Blue” on Rap Life, the playlist at the forefront of hip-hop culture today, and if you hear something you like, add it to your library.
