We take a look at the mindset of Vince Staples.
Summertime '06 is widely considered to be one of hip hop's many interesting albums of the year. Vince Staples' take on gang-infested California culture was unique and refreshing, and the record is tinder for plenty of socio-political conversations. "More black kids killed from a pill than the FEDs in the projects / In the planned parenthood playin' God with ya mom's check, you ain't even been to prom yet," comes to mind...
Staples has been making headlines recently over some comments he had about 90s-era hip hop. While this may be one of Vince's first quotes to go viral, it's hardly the first time he displayed some interesting opinions during an interview.
The Cali-born MC makes thought-provoking music, but he's also dropping lines in his interview that are deeper than your average rap record. We've compiled these brainy quotes to highlight some of Vince's thoughts and theories.
