Published Jan 29, 2016West Coast rhymer Vince Staples is just about to start another round of tour dates supporting last year's Summertime '06, and to stoke our interest, he's raising the stakes with a video for the collection's "Lift Me Up."
Directed by David Helman and Dustin Lane, it finds Staples spitting bars about Crip walkin', the effects of fashion commerce, race relations, sketchy Uber drivers and more, either from his bed or against chain link fence. By song's end, it's fair to say that the rapper's got an elevated flow.
You'll see what we mean down below.
Staples' concert schedule resumes next month, with the upcoming trip stopping by Vancouver's Vogue Theatre on March 1. You'll find the rest of the dates over here.
