We haven’t received an album from Vince Staples since his 2018 offering FM!, but the Los Angeles rapper has officially announced that he has another project on the way. Staples’s self-titled album is slated to arrive on July 9 and to kick off the rollout, the acclaimed emcee shares the record’s first single, “Law of Averages.” Along with the single’s arrival comes a poignant visual where Staples collects his crew and gathers in his familiar Long Beach neighborhood.
Vince’s forthcoming album was reportedly produced by Kenny Beats and he recently explained the concept behind the record. He reportedly said “it really gives much more information about me that wasn’t out there before. That’s why I went with that title. I feel like I’ve been trying to tell the same story. As you go on in life, your point of view changes. This is another take on myself that I might not have had before.”
“I’m a mind more than I am an entertainer to a lot of people,” he added. “I appreciate that my fanbase is willing to go on this ride with me. I’m ready to diversify what we’re doing and see how we affect the world.”
