Vince is ready for his close-up, a week early
Off the strength of his lead single, the Future-sampling “Senorita,” and an elite run of mixtapes, Long Beach, Calfornia rep Vince Staples will be releasing his proper debut album, Summertime ’06, to the masses next Tuesday, but you can hear it a week early today. Staples is joined by Jhene Aiko, DJ Dahi, Joey Fatts and a few others on his 2-disc journey, and of course his mentor No I.D.
If this is your first introduction to Staples, you won’t be disappointed. Stream the LP below, or go through it track-by-track over at NPR.
