The rapper is due to release new album “Big Fish Theory” this summer, following a stunning EP in 2016. Staples announced the record will arrive June 23. Now, he’s dropped the new track Big Fish, featuring Juicy J, with an accompanying visual on YouTube. It also appears that Kendrick Lamar, the Gorillaz, A$AP Rocky, Bon Iver and more will make cameos on the project. Vince Staples is going to drop a lot of great raps soon, and all of these little boats are going to get sunk if they don’t steer clear. “How rappers are perceived and perceive themselves”. He revealed the news on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show, and followed up with a striking video for the new single “Big Fish“. “I just think it was a culmination of things I had been learning over the past few years, and coming to an understanding”.

Big Fish” has sly rhymes for days – with its “eatin'”, “squeezin'”, “Artesian” triptych and dense “Quarterbackin’ like I’m 40 Water” call back.
