[HIP-HOP RISING] Probably best known for collaborations with those rascals in Odd Future, Long Beach’s Vince Staples is finally poised to step into the spotlight. The rapper’s latest mixtape, Shyne Coldchain Vol. 2, was released earlier this year to rave reviews. Coldchain confirms that the impressive lyricism Staples displayed as a frequent album guest was not a fluke, and that his knack for gritty subject matter stretches beyond his years. Staples is definitely an artist with the potential to blow up in the near future. This is a chance to scope him out before he does.
