As we reported on moments ago, Zane Lowe is currently giving fans their first listen of Vince Staples' Prima Donna EP, which officially drops tomorrow. The Beats 1 radio host is not only playing the EP in full (which includes features from A$AP Rocky and Kilo Kish), he's also interviewing the rapper in between cuts. You can check that out here.
Vince Staples' EP Prima Donna drops this Friday, but before then he and Adult Swim Singles Program have a treat for us. They linked up to drop the full version of “06,” the final track on Staples’ break out album Summertime ’06 that abruptly cuts out right when it’s hitting its stride.
War Ready (Snippet)
Vince Staples has an EP called Prima Donna due out later this summer. A new Staples song, possibly from the EP, debuted on last night's episode of the HBO show "Ballers." It's called "War Ready" and it's produced by British wunderkind James Blake.
Clams Casino Feat. Vince Staples
Yup, it's really happening. After a three-year hiatus and little-to-no new music, Clams Casino is gearing up to release his new album 32 Levels. Last night we received the tracklisting, which contains appearances from past collaborators (who achieved no small fame thanks to Clammy Clam's beats) ASAP Rocky and Lil B, as well as a few lesser-known artists like Kelela, Sam Dew, Mikky Ekko and more.
Kali Uchis Feat. Vince Staples & Steve Lacy
With winter refusing to go away, Colombian-born singer Kali Uchis debuts a track called "Only Girl" that has the power to accelerate the thaw and usher us into spring time.
Joey Fatts Feat. Vince Staples
Joey Fatts is known as much for his production as his rapping, but on his brand new project, Ill Call YoU Tomorrow, he's shifted beatmaking duties to an impressive array of collaborators, as he focuses on his vocal performance.
Charlie Puth Feat. Vince Staples
Charlie Puth is still riding the wave from his debut Nine Track Mind, and he gives it another push by enlisting Vince Staples for a verse and AndreaLo for a brand new beat. Unlike a lot of remixes that end up being extended versions of the original track, “Suffer (Remix)” is a remix in the true sense of the word.
Smoke & Retribution
Flume Feat. Vince Staples & Kučka
Australian electronic producer Flume is no stranger to teaming up with members of the hip hop community. The deluxe version of his debut record featured remixes of his songs with Freddie Gibbs, Stalley, Ghostface Killah and Killer Mike.
Waiting For My Moment
Childish Gambino, Jhene Aiko & Vince Staples
We were already expecting a Childish Gambino x Vince Staples collaboration to appear on the forthcoming soundtrack for the film "Creed," however we were not aware that Ms. Jhene Aiko would also be in the mix. And it's very much a movie.
With You. Feat. Vince Staples
British DJ Switch was one of the founding members of Major Lazer, and now he's launching a new project called With You. After posting a slew of remixes on his Soundcloud in the last month, including Meek Mill & Drake's "R.I.C.O." & OG Maco's "Bitch U Guessed It," With You. drops an original in "Ghost" feat. Vince Staples. "Ghost" utilizes a hypnotic bass line and four-on-the-floor kick, not Vince's usual style, but his flow is so in the pocket here one wonders if he should use these sort of beats more often.
Get The Money
Ghostface Killah & Adrian Younge Feat. Vince Staples
After teaming up with BadBadNotGood for Sour Soul, Ghostface Killah is collabing with producer Adrian Younge on new album Twelve Reasons to Die II. Today they share one of the album's lead singles, "Get The Money" feat. Vince Staples. The song "Get The Money" is a high-powered car chase music with Ghost & Vince's verses in tow over a vintage Adrian Younge beat.
Vince Staples Feat. Desi Mo
Vince Staples is getting ready to release his highly anticipated Def Jam debut on June 30th called Summertime '06. Recently announced as a double disc album, Summertime '06 will contain 20 tracks in total and feature guest contributions from No I.D., Future, Jhené Aiko, DJ Dahi, Daley and more.
Vince Staples Feat. Future
When we were out at Action Bronson's "South By South Wonderful" event, Vince Staples left us in shock and awe when he dropped an unreleased Future collaboration. Beyond the fact that we never expected to see those two on the same track, it also went ridiculously hard. Today, he's dropped the track, titled "Señorita" and also featuring Snoh Aalegra.
Audio Push Feat. Vince Staples & Casey Veggies
Audio Push debuted their new mixtape, The Good Vibe Tribe, which should hold fans over until the duo are ready to drop their debut album on Hit-Boy's imprint. The project, which is basically like a 4/20 playlist you didn't need to curate, contains 14 new cuts with appearances from Fat Trel, OG Maco, Isaiah Rashad and more. On "Mind Trap" Audio Push nab two fellow Left Coasters for features, with smooth production from Hit-Boy and Preach.
Christian Rich Feat. Vince Staples & Bia
Vince Staples is at the point in his career now where he's killing every track he touches, even if it's an out-of-character EDM banger. That's what "High," a new track helmed by production duo Christian Rich (who've worked with Earl Sweatshirt, Childish Gambino, J. Cole and others), is, and Staples slays it all the same.
Earl Sweatshirt Feat. Vince Staples
On previous tracks such as "epaR," "Burgundy" and "Hive," L.A.'s Earl Sweatshirt and Vince Staples have proven time and time again that they're one of the most formidable young duos in rap. As Earl's new album I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside: An Album By Earl Sweatshirt just popped up on iTunes, we're now privy to their latest, a typically creeping jam called "Wool."
Common Feat. Vince Staples & Jay Electronica
A few days ago, we reported that Jay Electronica was slated to appear on an upcoming remix of Common and Vince Staples' "Kingdom," and now it's arrived. Common just posted the remix on his SoundCloud with that relatively low budget artwork you see to the left.
After being featured on Common’s latest album, Nobody's Smiling, fellow Def Jam recording artist, Vince Staples, is finally ready to do his own thing here soon and release his debut project Hell Can Wait later this month. Tonight, the Long Beach rapper comes through and shares the project’s newest offering “Hands Up”.

The track serves as the first single off his upcoming album, Hell Can Wait, which is due out in September. It follows up Vince's latest release, "Made" featuring Bad Rabbits.
Million $ Dreams
Joey Fatts Feat. Vince Staples
Joey Fatts may be the least visible member of his Cutthoat Boyz crew, though he's an integral part of the groups menacing west coast sound. Outside of rapping, Fatts is also the in-house producer for the group rounded out by Aston Matthews and Vince Staples, supplying the instrumentals for a good chunk of Matthews' latest mixtape, Aston 3:16.
