Listen to Vince Staples’ New ‘Prima Donna’ EP
After debuting the entire thing on Beats 1 Radio, Vince Staples has dropped his new Prima Donna EP. You can listen on Apple Music right here.
The Long Beach MC sat down with Zane Lowe to talk about the new project, how he feels about media and interviews, and much more. It features production from James Blake, No I.D. and DJ Dahi and also includes a song called "War Ready" that samples a classic Andre 3000 verse from "ATLiens." He says he wrote that song about three years ago, and "Big Time," the last song on the EP, was the first thing he worked on with producer James Blake. You can hear the entire interview between Vince and Zane below.
In addition, Vince is dropping a short film to accompany the EP, directed by Nabil, who's worked closely with stars like Kanye West and Frank Ocean. He's also making a limited edition run of vinyl for the EP, and only 5,000 copies are being pressed.
"The way Jay Z looks at people is my favorite thing in the world," jokes Vince. He even admits the first time he listened to Jay Z was after watching the Fade to Black documentary.
