Vince Staples logged on to the r/hiphopheads subreddit to let his fans quiz him on anything and everything to promote his album Big Fish Theory, which is set to drop on June 23.
Fans wasted no time getting to the more savage questions, getting right to the point with: “Be honest with me, how little do you want to be here doing this.” Vince didn’t mess around either, writing back “Lol you feel me.”
Vince kept his answers short, but that doesn’t mean we didn’t learn anything from the AMA. For example, we learned that the fish on the cover of Big Fish Theory is called Karl.
His Favorite Song
He also revealed that his favorite song is Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” and when asked about working with Damon Albarn (the lead singer of Blur and Gorillaz) he said, “That’s my crip.”
Fans didn’t seem all that interested in asking about Vince’s new music, but the questions they did ask turned up some amazing answers. Asked about his favorite romantic comedy, Vince came back with: “500 Days of Summer, I like watching white people struggle through life.”
His Favorite Rappers
He also offered a Kanye-ism when he was asked which Hip Hop legend he’d most like collab with. His answer? “Me.” He did reveal who his favorite rappers were though, calling it a tie between Kanye West and Andre 3000.
Asked if he’d do a song with Joey Bada$$, Vince simply said “I did that already,” and let that statement hang in the air.
As for artists he’d like to collab with, Vince kept the list short and left it at “Daft Punk.”
Where Earl Sweatshirt Is
When asked about Earl Sweatshirt, he answered that there was no chance of a collab album, but provided an update about his elusive friend on Twitter.
