What's This?

The new Vince Staples EP premiered live today on Beats 1 Radio, one day prior to the scheduled release date. The seven-track recording, Prima Donna, moves fast and is marked by a feeling of controlled frenzy. A raw, crackling vocal singing “This Little Light of Mine,” serves as an eerily serene intro to the extended play, but before the one minute mark the calm is ripped by a gun shot and followed by total silence. The harshness of Staples’ voice spits onto “War Ready,” commands attention above “Smile,” and ends with Staples delivering a stark monologue. As summer fades out, Prima Donna will serve as a heavy soundtrack to the changing season.
