After partnering with longtime collaborator Michael Uzowuru for the acclaimed Winter In Prague mixtape in 2012 and Mac Miller (under the alias Larry Fisherman) for the revered Stolen Youth mixtape in 2013, Vince Staples returns to his musical roots. With the release of Shyne Coldchain II, the gifted Long Beach, California rapper delivers the type of introspective reality- based street lyricism that has made him one of rap’s rising stars.
“It’s been a minute since I’ve really been 100 percent hands-on me, myself really going all the way in, deciding everything,” explains Vince Staples, one of the latest signees to the legendary Def Jam Recordings. “So it’s more personal this time than it has been with the last two I dropped. It’s more of a complete vision for me. I feel like it’s always going to turn out better that way.” WSG: Kilo Kish
