Vince Staples, California’s sensational hip hop artist is bringing his signature sounds to the Paradise Rock Club!
Vincent "Vince" Staples was born in Long Beach in 1993 and is a rapper, actor, and songwriter. He’s had a stellar career with 1 studio album, 2 extended plays, 10 singles, and 4 mix tapes. His album (titled Summertime ’06) was produced by many high profile producers in the industry (No I.D., DJ Dahi, Clams Casino, Brian Kidd, Christian Rich and Mikky Ekko) and was met with widespread critical acclaim. It hit #39 on the US Billboard 200 chart, # 3 and #2 on Billboard’s Top R&B and Hip Hop Albums and Top Rap Albums charts respectively. Vince often talks about not getting into rap music to live the glamorous life often flaunted by rappers and he doesn’t consider himself a part of mainstream rap culture. He said in an interview, “I don't even know what mainstream rap culture is. Do we look at Taylor Swift like she's U2? Do we look at Justin Bieber like he's Justin Timberlake? Do we look at Frank Ocean like he's Usher? No. I understand it, though. Being honest, a lot of it is because more artists should put more into their work and more into their craft and care more about it. At this point, it seems like people are just doing it for the most part to get money.”
Don’t miss your chance to see this artist add a unique touch to hip hop music!
