As we get closer to the release date of Vince Staples new album, Big Fish Theory, more tantalizing details are being shared. Coming at the end of this week, the new album will feature a wide-ranging guest list of collaborators.
We've already heard "Rain Come Down" featuring Ty Dolla $ign, along with a couple of other tracks, "BagBak" and "Big Fish", but now the album's full credits and tracklist have appeared on iTunes.
Appearing on the follow-up to 2015's Summertime '06 is a star-studded range of players that's as far-reaching as it is impressive in terms of a-list talent. Kendrick Lamar, Damon Albarn, A$AP Rocky, Rick Ross join the already mentioned Ty Dolla $ign dropping verses and beats. In the production booth is SOPHIE and Flume. Full tracklist and credits are below.
Aside from working on the new album, Staples is also sharing his verses in a new campaign with Sprite soda. About two years ago the rapper joined the Obey Your Thirst campaign for the soda manufacturer — an event that he's since joked about, tweeting about the world of corporate sponsorship in art — his tone, as usual, has been sarcastic — but it doesn't seem to have altered his sponsor's opinions of his stock.
This summer Sprite will be including verses from the rapper on a new line of cans that will feature quotes from a range of up-and-coming rappers, including D.R.A.M., Kamaiyah, Lil Yachty and Kap G.
Featured on Staples' can will be an extract from his track "Norf Norf" which featured the lyrics: "B***, you thirsty, please grab a Sprite / My Crips lurking, don't die tonight." It's confirmed that the B-word is removed, and that this new collaboration between rapper and sponsors have made everyone involved very happy.
New album, new bunch of friends, and a new deal with his favorite fizzy drink — seems like the summer of 2017 is going to shine on Staples.
