What makes Vince Staples so appealing is his capacity to really not give a fuck what you think. And not even in a way that’s overtly showboating. No, Vince is here to rap some raps, collect a check, and bounce. That’s the kind of forthrightness I appreciate, and I think it’s also what makes him such a great rapper. Often, he doesn’t focus on the flex, but on the music. His latest effort, FM!, sounds more like an experience than an album, like driving down the highway in the hot summer with one of those raucous radio stations turned on full blast. You can see the heat rising off the blacktop over the sounds of Long Beach–inflected hiphop. Exactly the way Vince should be appreciated.
