Long Beach, CA native, Vince Staples, revealed in a cover story with GQ that he has two new albums on the way. Along with new music, he revealed that a new series with Netflix is coming soon as well. Staples season will soon be upon us.
One of the two albums is a self titled album and is set for a summer release. The other, as of now, is titled Ramona Park Broke My Heart, and is set to release later this year. No updates about the forthcoming Netflix series but it is definitely in the works.
Vince has been fairly quiet since the release of his 2018 album, FM! The album debuted at #37 on the Billboard 200 during the week of its release and was praised by many fans for its on air radio concept. Aside from releasing an occasional single or feature over the past three years, Vince has ironically been radio silent.
In his GQ interview with Showtime’s own, Desus Nice (from Desus & Mero), he reflected on living his life with less pressure these days and needing a break.
“I’ve grown up in a specific type of environment my whole life. And I was in that environment nonstop with no breaks for 20-something years.… Then I was constantly putting out music, constantly touring. But I hadn’t been able to have a mental gap or space to really live an actual life outside of that environment. So it’s getting out of that.”
Along with speaking on music and his current life during the pandemic, Vince also spoke on the late great Nipsey Hussle, XBox vs Playstation and Raccoons.
