“I’m just a n*gga…until I fill my pockets…& then I’m Mr. N*gga…they follow me while shoppin…I feel like makin riches, they feel like Muddy Waters…so tell me what’s the difference…so tell me what’s the difference…(Lift Me Up)”
Vince Staples has just dropped his much anticipated debut album, SummerTime ’06. He’s definitely making a splash with this one.
Summertime ’06 is very West Coast with a lot of base & feeling. Vince talks about all aspects of life from the streets to his rise in the Rap game. For a young guy he is very in command of himself & his sound. He’s speaking for the hood, giving something to dance to as well as making a firm statement about who he is as a real contender as a MC.
The album is produced largely by the legendary No I.D. It features appearances by Daley, Jhené Aiko, DJ Dahi, Joey Fatts, Kilo Kish, Snoh Aalegra, Haneef Talib, Desi Mo, Aston Mathews, Future, Earl Sweatshirt & James Fauntleroy. Definitely a great record to ride to.
