A collaboration everyone will be talking about. Vince Staples teams up with Ty Dolla $ign for new single, "Rain Come Down." The track is produced by Zack Sekoff and is the third track off Vince Staple's upcoming album, Big Fish Theory, which will release on June 23. Previously he released tracks such as "BagBak" and "Big Fish."
On the track, Staples discusses what it means to be behind close doors with a girl. XXL Magazine reports that Staples will be leaving his record company. They reported, "The album comes as No I.D., who signed Vince to Def Jam and has produced for the Cali rapper for years now, is leaving the label to become the Executive Vice President at Capitol Music Group."
Staples' previous album, Summertime '06, received a lot of praise. Hot New Hip Hop reported, "The album is jarring and not just because it's produced by No I.D. The project masters the sinister sounds of what could be a horror story but instead is Vince's life. It's the suspense and the pauses between piano keys, that keeps us waiting, nervous for the kill - or in this case, Vince's raps."
The California native is always working hard despite his hardship background. He opened up to The Guardian about always being subjected to violence. He admitted, "I come from gang culture. Birds of a feather flock together.. If you live in Long Beach, gang members are going to be your friends regardless. You don't get 'sucked into' being an American, for example, you live there! Gangs are just part of southern Californian culture, they've been there since the late-1800s."
Ty Dolla $ign has been keeping busy with his collaborations as well. Last month, he released five singles as per Hot New Hip Hop. His list includes "Is It Mine," "Whatever You Need," "Can't Believe," "Swalla," and "Like You." He's teamed up with Jason Derulo, Nicki Minaj, MistaRogers, Kranium, Wizkid, RJ, Chris Brown, and Meek Mill.
