    Long Beach rises again, and Vince Staples is carrying it.

    His new single "Blue Suede" stands emblematic of the city's hip-hop legacy, but it also blazes down a new lane at light speed. His easy flow practically burns through the eerie sirens and ominous beats behind him. Each word hits succinctly as he ponders, "Hope I outlive the red roses". The hook itself proves equally powerful and punchy, and he never lets up on the verses, evincing pummeling mic skills.

    As far as hip-hop goes, you're listening to the future right now. The LBC should be very proud. "Blue Suede" is only the beginning of its new king's reign. Hell Can Wait will undoubtedly be a monster when it drops...
