Albums We Love: Vince Staples-Hell Can Wait

Hell can wait

The progression of Long Beach rapper Vince Staples from Shyne Coldchain Vol. 1 to now has been staggering. His songs are sounding more complete, his lyricism more refined and his imagery more distinct than ever. Nowhere is this more apparent than in Staples’s debut EP, Hell Can Wait. From the sounds of screen doors creaking to helicopters buzzing, as well as vivid stories of Vince’s father doing anything to make ends meet, Staples has crafted grim imagery depicting the streets of California almost perfectly. This EP feels like a musical rendition of Menace II¬†Society, something definitely worth a rotation.
