Vince staples is a constant. He consistently releases music that appeals to critics and fans alike. You can constantly count on him to paint a vivid picture with his albums. He released a self-titled Album and it like the rest of his catalogue, doesn’t disappoint. It’s a ten-song album running at about 20 minutes. It opens up with what was my favorite song on the album on my first playthrough “Are You With That”,a song that touches on his childhood and how he just wanted to move weight and get money so he doesn’t remain poor. While “Law of Averages” is more about almost everyone he knows asking him for a handout and how he’d much rather just be left alone. Both songs have videos out, and both of which are shot incredibly well. The last two songs I want to talk about off the album are personally my favorite two songs off the album. The first being “Sundown Town”, it talks about a harsh reality in which his family was evicted, and they had to stay with his relatives. Soon after that they were forced out of there as well. The last being “Take Me Home”, it features Fousheé. Again touching on going back to the hood after he’s made it out. My favorite line from the song is “You know these trips come with baggage, been all cross this atlas but keep coming back to this place cause it trapped us. I preach what I practice, these streets is all that I’ve known. And it’s no place like home.” This album is one of my favorites of the year by far. It is available now on Spotify, apple music, and other major streaming services. It was released on July 9th, 2021.
