Vince Staples

Album Review: FM! by Vince Staples (8/10)

A new breed of West Coast rappers has emerged in the last decade and Vince Staples is someone who has proven sustainability from this renaissance. FM! is Staples’ third major release and is his best work thus far. It is creative, fun and nostalgic. “Feels like Summer” is reminiscent of his life and times living in Long Beach, CA, while “Run the Bands” is an ode his hustle acquiring wealth in the rap game. For the most part, Vince’s delivery makes him stand out, but he is clever and honest about himself, and he is someone to watch for years to come.

Rating: 8/10
