Coming straight out of Long Beach, Cali, Vince Staples has been featured with prominent artists such as Mac Miller and the Odd Future gang. Vince is a young buck, no question about that. With only one LP, Staples is only at the beginning of his career, and Vince has a very promising future ahead of him. What sets Vince appart from other rappers is his music is heavily founded in reality; instead of glamorizing the life of a gang member like most of these cats do, he seeks to strip away the glamour around being in a gang and leave a positive influence on his listeners. Personally, I tend to like an artist's music more when I like them as a person and because of Vince's commitment to leaving a positive impact, he is no exception.
Because of his career being as young as it is, getting more attention is all part of the plan and the best and most efficent way of gaining a stronger following is having dope live shows. Vince Staples has a habit of giving dope live shows. Speaking of dope live shows, I am giving tickets to Vince Staples tonight on my show, ApexHour. It runs for an hour from 5-6 PM on weekdays but specifically tonight I will be giving away tickets to Vince Staples to a concert of his on the 27th. So what is better than a Vince Staples concert? A free Vince Staples concert.
