“We making future music,” announced Vince Staples in the run-up to ‘Big Fish Theory’’s release. “This is my Afro-futurism.”  Such claims, as well as a debut [‘Summertime ’06‘] that fused accute political commentary with vivid story-telling that extrapolated from the situation in his native Long Beach, left him with a lot to live up to.  Thankfully, ‘Big Fish Theory’ surpasses expectation, hopefully cementing Staples as very bit the contemporary of the likes of Kendrick Lamar & J. Cole despite his status as something of an underdog.  Stream below via Spotify, click here to download via iTunes or here for SoundCloud.
