A "Big Fish" in Hip-Hop
Vincent Jamal Staples was born in Compton on July 2, 1993. He attended a Christian school in Long Beach from fourth to eighth grade, which Staples says had a good influence on him. However, his high school years involved a long string of school changes, likely due to the negative influences of Staples' gang affiliations. He now speaks to youth in his community about the dangers of gang life. He donated an undisclosed amount of money toward a program that teaches graphic design, product design, music production and filmmaking to middle school students at Hamilton Middle School in North Long Beach. Staples gives listeners the narrative of his coming-of-age period through his debut album Summertime '06, released on June 30, 2015. The album was critically acclaimed for its production and Staples' lyricism. It debuted at No. 39 on the US Billboard chart. About two years later, Staples released Big Fish Theory, which explored other genres such as electronic and house. The album was described as being clearly inspired by Detroit techno. It received widespread critical acclaim for its profound subject matter and its risky incorporation of an avant-garde style. Big Fish Theory debuted at No. 16 on the US Billboard 200 in 2017. On Nov. 3, 2018, Staples released FM!, which peaked at No. 37 on the US Billboard 200. It was praised for consistently excellent production quality, Vince's raw and biting flows and his celebration of the West Coast.
