Last year, the young Long Beach rapper Vince Staples released Summertime ’06, one of the best albums that 2016 had to offer. And just now, out of the blue, he’s announced plans to follow it up with a new EP called Prima Donna, which will be out in a mere 11 days. The new EP will feature production from past Staples collaborators No I.D. and DJ Dahi, as well as from James Blake, which is exciting. A$AP Rocky and Kilo Kish will both guest. And the great music-video director Nabil has directed an accompanying short film. In short, pretty much everything about this news absolutely fucking rules. Below, check out the new EP’s tracklist.
01 “War Ready”
03 “Loco” (Feat. Kilo Kish)
04 “Prima Donna” (Feat. A$AP Rocky)
05 “Pimp Hand”
06 “Big Time”
