Vince Staples: Summertime '06
Buy! - (Def Jam)
This Long Beach, CA rapper’s official debut full-length is a powerful double album of dark, brooding hip hop. Produced by No I.D. along with DJ Dahi and Clams Casino, the album combines a spare, ominous sound with Staples’ matter-of-fact delivery and incisive rhymes of growing up hard in the bleak streets of Long Beach. 7/10/2015 - Don Yates
