5 Times Vince Staples Showed His Comedic Chops

Staples has a knack for humor.

Vince Staples’ ​​self-titled album, Vince Staples, has been a recipient of high praise since its release on July 9th. 

Compared to his last three albums, which all offered a diverse array of sounds ranging from trap to UK garage, this release was much more concise with Kenny Beats as its lone producer. As a result, the Long Beach native has an Album of the Year contender.
