Vince Staples proves he can peddle summer vibes with the best of ’em.
The main conceit behind Vince Staplesincorporating running commentary from Big Boy’s Neighbourhood was to give the FM! a distinct LA radio feel. The album’s opening number begins with Big Boy talking up the summer tingle Californians feel 6 months out of the year.As Vince Staples contends, “cold weather won’t stop no gunner.” After being pigeon-holed a thinking man’s rapper, Vince Staples proved he could make the prototypical summer record better than anybody. What better way to put such an effort forward, than on duet with Ty Dolla $ign, a singer/rapper who’s made the sensation of summer his main selling point.
