Oh You Scared, ain’t you? That’s right; I see you there trembling with fear, mouse pointer hovering over the play button. And who wouldn’t be a little leery to listen to Vince Staples‘s latest feature, given the Los Angeles representative’s reputation for microphone murder? If you do manage to face down your fears, though, a dope listen awaits. Coming on the heels of mixtape lead single Nate, which found Staples reflecting on his traumatic relationship with his father, this freshly-released standout offers a broader perspective on the struggle’s effects on inner-city youth. Over Windy City mainstay No I.D.‘s swirling synths and languid percussion, he vividly describes the stress of living under the constant threat of catching a case—or a bullet. Def Jam labelmate Jhené Aiko contributes some understated hook vocals. For Oh You Scared and much more, check out Vince’s Shyne Coldchain Vol. 2 street album, released today for free streaming and download.
