You can do anything that you wanna do, but don’t you dare step on Vince Staples‘s Blue Suede shoes. While the West Coast buzzmaker takes a page from Elvis Presley’s book on single numero uno off his Def Jam debut, the message is a little more forceful this time ‘round. Unlike the King, Staples, fresh off a collaboration with Common, is more than willing to ventilate the skulls of those who scuff his kicks or otherwise f**k with him. Hagler Tyrant crafts an appropriately gritty backdrop for the emcee’s bars, layering a wailing synth over crunchy, heavily-syncopated percussion. Hell Can Wait has yet to receive a drop date from the Def Jam brass but, rest assured, we’ll keep you supplied with the latest news and tunes.
