Vince Staples says “tell the president to suck a dick” on new single “BagBak”

Vince Staples remains unstoppable. He released one of the best albums of 2015 with Summertime ’06, followed it last year with the great Prima Donna EP, and now he’s got a new single out. It’s called “BagBak” and it takes shots at gentrification, racial profiling, and the president:

Clap your hands if the police ever profile
You don’t gotta worry, don’t be scared because we own ya
Ain’t no gentrifying us, we finna buy the whole town
Tell the one percent to suck a dick, because we on now
We on now, we on now
Tell the one percent to suck a dick, because we on now
Tell the government to suck a dick, because we on now
Tell the president to suck a dick, because we on now

Vince has an upcoming tour with Kilo Kish, which hits NYC on March 30 at Terminal 5 (tickets), and he’ll be back in NYC for day two (7/29) of the Panorama festival, the same day as Tame Impala, Alt-J, Nicolas Jaar, Belle & Sebastian, Pinegrove, Noname, and more.
