Vince Staples 'Prima Donna' (EP stream)
Published Aug 25, 2016Vince Staples has been rifling off all sorts of songs for his fans this week. After serving up a spit-shined version of his "'06" through Adult Swim, the California rapper has now offered up his entire Prima Donna.
After premiering the new tune "Smile" hrough Zane Lowe's Beats 1 program, the entire EP showed up on Apple Music. Right now, you can give it an early listen below.
As for "Smile," it finds Staples describing his dangerous life above a freakily fuzzed-out guitar hook that sounds like it could have come from a Black Keys album. The track baps into action with hard smacked snares and staccato string hits, while Staples waxes on turning his back on family and friends, and looking for a brighter day.
You can check out the mood-inspecting anthem below and the reset of Prima Donna below before it officially drops tomorrow (August 26).
