Vince Staples is one of the most prolific emcees of this generation.

With a few studio release under his belt thus far, we're anxiously awaiting the forthcoming Big Fish Theory LP. Staples has kept his name in the conversation among hip hop fans through features, mixtapes and, perhaps most impressively, his freestyles. 

It seems every couple of months some of the most legendary names in the hip hop game put the Californian rapper up to the test, making him spit bars off the top.  Whether it's Sway, Snoop, or Dre delivering the challenge, Staples always delivers a freestyle worthy of viral attention among his personal fans and fans of the genre alike. 

With Big Fish Theory around the corner, we can't think of a better way to hold us over than to go through the LBC emcee's dopest off-the-dome displays.
