"To me, everything is about life. I’m just always
trying to figure out life in the most natural way
possible. The things that I learnt yesterday, if I’m
recording today, I’ll put it in a song. I might change
my mind after and think I don’t feel this way
anymore, and that might be the next song. Just
letting it be fluid with the overall experience, that
way the listener can always know who I’m
aspiring to be. They’ll know the interest. They’ll
know the ups, the downs. "
Vince Staples speaks the truth. His answers are
short, sincere, and straight-to-the-point. He’s
observant, that much is clear, a true documentarian
of life’s jittering rollercoaster. And it’s his
avant-garde artistry that makes his house our
home, leaving the front door ajar, so we can soak
up the view.
With a Netflix show pending and a new album
release imminent, the rapper covers our Spring
2022 issue, and talks making great television,
the inspiration behind his new album, and how
he’s already reached his goals.
