Review of 'Hell Can Wait' by Vince Staples
What do you look for in hip hop? Catchy hooks? Tight flows? Head-bobbing well-produced beats? Realness? This EP from 21-year old Cali rapper Vince Staples has got it all. Just don’t expect any envelope pushing. Vince Staples is the perfect template of a good rapper, and nothing else. He’s the Ford Focus of the rap game. You wish there was something more wild about him, something more unique, but at the same time he does the job and you can’t help but admire that. Sing along to the choruses and watch the 808 bass shake the framed photos off your bedroom wall.
