And we back…. with some new heat from Vince Staples leading up to his sophomore album, Big Fish Theory, dropping in two weeks. Featuring Ty Dolla $ign on the hook, “Rain Come Down” is showing Vince’s ability to parlay with some unsuspecting collaborators – just like this Tyga track he skills as well.
Sounds like Clams Casino‘s debut album 32 Levels will be another great addition to 2016’s solid hip hop album releases. Out on July 25, the project will hold features from A$AP Rocky, Lil B, alt-J, as well as Vince Staples who spits on the official new single “All Nite”. The song is available for stream below and you can pre-order the album now.
