Vince Staples and Juicy J perform "Big Fish."
Back in June, Ramona Park rapper Vince Staples released his experimental album Big Fish. The electro-house tinged production may have alienated certain segments of the hip-hop audience, but Staples enjoyed a solid batch of critical acclaim nonetheless. Yesterday, Vince and Juicy J teamed up for an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, which found the duo performing on the big stage.
Vince performed the album's first single "Big Fish," dressed in a flashy red-zipper down. The crowd seemed to be feeling it, but you can honestly never tell with these Jimmy Kimmel Live audiences. Either way, they kicked it up a notch when Juicy J whipped out a fat stack of cash and began making it rain. There's no words how much the bills he tossed into the crowd were worth, but either way, it's a badass move.
Ultimately, Juicy J largely plays the role of hype-man, throwing up the money phone and sharing the wealth. Still, could anyone ask for a more hype hype-man? Doubtful. Despite Big Fish Theory having some slightly disappointing sales figures, Staples remains on the promotional circuit, continuing to impress with his strong live performance.
