Vince Staples – “Shame On The Devil”

Vince Staples Shame On The DevilVince Staples has returned with a brand new single, titled “Shame On The Devil”. The rapper has also revealed the name, release and tracklist for his next album.

“Shame On The Devil” will appear on Staples’ upcoming album Dark Times, which will be released on May 24th. It will contain 13 solo tracks.

A new era in the prolific artist’s canon, the album is a muscular and revelatory work refining elements that have been present in his catalog for the last decade: dense lyricism over lush, layered beats; wry, melancholic observations about life; finding pockets of light in an endless dark.

In conjunction with the album announcement, Staples released the first single from the project, “Shame on the Devil,” which features him rapping over a warm, spectral beat, ruminating on how anointed his life is now, in spite of bouts of loneliness and fallouts with friends. Calling the song “a personal achievement,” Staples said, “it’s me mastering some things I’ve tried before that I wasn’t great at in the beginning. It’s a testament to musical growth, song structure—all the good stuff.”
