For those who’ve been fiending for new Vince Staples raps like the junkies his pops used to serve from behind the screen door, here’s your fix. The Long Beach lyricist just popped up on “Smoke & Retribution,” the new single from Australian producer Flume. You’ll immediately realize this isn’t Vince’s usual type of record, but he does the business nonetheless. “You ain’t got no money, I ain’t got no time/All these faces looking funny when I’m driving by,” might even by a sly nod to these unfamiliar surroundings.
Listen to the Beats 1 premiere of “Smoke & Retribution” below. Flume’s Skin album is out later this year.
