While crafting his debut album, Vince Staples revisited one of the most pivotal periods in his life. The Long Beach, California rapper did so because it is the time that inspired the things he’s discussed throughout his music. For him, it was a line of demarcation for his evolution.
With Summertime ’06, Vince Staples delves into the crucial season of his life, one where he discovered what his life was about and what it was shaping up to be. It was a wild, a coming-of-age time depicted on Hell Can Wait, his acclaimed 2014 Def Jam Recordings EP. “That’s the prequel to what we’re speaking about on this album,” he says, “the point where we kind of had to grow up and fend for ourselves.”
Born and raised in Long Beach, California, Vince Staples has emerged as one of rap’s preeminent rising artists. He’s released two installments of his Shyne Coldchain mixtape series and paired in 2013 with Mac Miller (under the alias Larry Fisherman) for the revered Stolen Youth mixtape. Successful tours and collaborations with Earl Sweatshirt and ScHoolboy Q also dot his resume, as does 2014’s Hell Can Wait EP, his sterling debut Def Jam project. Now, with Summertime ’06, Vince Staples has crafted a full-length album on rap’s most important label. For Vince Staples, it’s about much more than just being a well-paid, high-profile artist. “I don’t care about money because I’ve always been broke,” he says. “I don’t care about attention because I’ve got a gap between my teeth and a speech problem. I don’t care about fame because it’s corny. I don’t care about being a rapper because those dudes embarrass themselves. What I care about is that when you die, were you full of crap. That’s what matters where I come from.” It’s a lesson Vince Staples learned during the Summertime ’06.
