Vince Staples has the natural gift of conversation. Whether he's insulting the '90s, clowning someone from not recognizing Gucci Mane's greatness, or calling Ray J a top five West Coast MC, there's plenty of stories for the media to pick up on.
In a new interview with California Sunday Magazine, Vince makes it clear that he doesn't want to be one of those artists who continues to rap forever. In fact, he hopes to be done and move onto something else fairly quickly.
"You’re out of your goddamn mind if you think I’m going to be doing this music shit for more than two more years," he said. "And let me really get some money? If I get some in the next six months, you’ll never see me again."Vince goes on to say that he's only rapping because it's his best option without a high school diploma. He calls the rap game"corny" and doesn't like how it pits black people against each other and fosters a culture of negativity.
“[Rap] doesn’t progress with the times,” he said in the interview. “I think that’s unfortunate, because rap culture is an extension of black culture, no matter what anybody says. That shows we have to get better.”Do you agree with Vince?
