Album Review

The second EP from Long Beach rapper Vince Staples, Prima Donna is a concise and intense ride that follows his 2015 breakout album, Summertime '06. Featuring appearances from A$AP Rocky and Kilo Kish, Prima Donna combines Staples' uncomfortably honest inner ruminations with wider social issues relevant to being a black man in America. As he declares on the second track, reality is so dire, one has to be "War Ready." Immediately following on "Smile," he repeats "sometimes I feel like giving up," the psychological toll of life pushing him to the point of "sometimes I wanna kill myself." It's a sobering slice of vulnerability from the young rapper. He jumps from helpless to hopeful — often within the same song — but remains hungry throughout. With production by DJ Dahi, John Hill, No I.D., and James Blake (on the OutKast-sampling "War Ready"), Prima Donna is an essential snapshot of 2016 that bears witness to the evolution of an artist coming into his own with an unflinching, socially conscious perspective. ~ Neil Z.

Customer Reviews

Sold

Vince bars still nice and he still has the flow that makes him different from other rappers but beats are not all that great. Solid album, but he can do better.

Vince is incredibly talented.

Vince brought gangsta rap back like schoolboy q did, & it's something not many rappers can do. This guy is amazing & I have no doubt that he'll go down as one of the best ever by the end of his career.

What happened

Vince you're my favorite rapper around but what is this the beats are all off war ready plays a constant annoying high note over your lyrics so I can't even hear you, the girl in loco ruins the song even a$ap can't save prima donna, and pimp hand strong is this the 90's? Vince get it together ur amazing go back to your old beats.
