Vince Staples - Big Fish Theory (2xLP - Picture Disc)
Vince Staples has announced his new album, Big Fish Theory. It features the new song “Big Fish” as well as the previously shared track “BagBak.”
Speaking about the follow up to 2015's Summertime '06, Staples told Complex: "It encompasses things: Being larger than life in a smaller world, so to say. How rappers are perceived and perceive themselves."
Asked what he learned while making the record, Staples suggested that wasn't the journey he took this time. "I don't think this album was a learning process itself as far as the creation of it," he said. "I just think it was a culmination of things I had been learning over the past few years, and coming to an understanding. Often times, music becomes a coping mechanism for people."
On the subject of what he's coping with, Staples offered the following: "I think everybody’s coping with the same shit. It’s just life. You live a long life, and then you die."
Earlier this year, Staples collaborated with Gorillaz on their track “Ascension” from their LP Humanz, and released the single “562” with Joey Fatts. Last year, he released an EP called Prima Donna.
