New Vince Staples album Streaming…and it’s pretty fucking good.

Vince Staples is a lot of peoples favorite rapper right now and that makes all the sense in the world. The L.A. born and bred Odd Future affiliate has been on a tear the last few years. Putting out quality mix tapes and an EP.
His new album “Summertime 06” is dropping soon and the good people at NPR (where hip hop lives) are streaming the album in it’s entirety. I’m not gonna lie and say I’ve been listening to it all day (it’s streaming, therefor kinda annoying to listen to casually) but I went through it and it’s sounding really great. Can’t wait to get my hands on a real copy.
Anyway, peep it…good rap music does still exist, you pricks.

  1. NPR actually has some solid hip hop employees or something. They also had Heems album streaming before it came out. They also occasional play some songs from Music By Cavelight between segments.

  2. I just saw Vince Staples live recently, because he was opening for someone else. I never gave his stuff a chance before that. To be honest, I got bored. Then some kids started clowning me for standing in back messing with my phone. They were wearing weird hats and knee-high socks. I realized I might be old. Good times. To be fair, I can’t stand Tyler, so am quick to write off Odd Future stuff. I checked out some of this Vince Staples album stream though, and he sounds good on record.

      • Yeah, I’ve probably overlooked some good stuff. I’ll listen to this whole Staples album once I can find a copy. Your blog put me on to that EARL song a few years back, which I like, and I usually check for his solo stuff. His newest album is really good. I’ve heard some songs by The Internet, and want to check them out more. I don’t know anything about Domo though, so I’ll put that on the list.
