Vince Staples – American singer, songwriter, actor
Vincent Jamal Staples was born on 2nd July 1993 in Compton, California. When he was a child, the family moved to North Long Beach. The reason for moving was a high crime rate. Vince’s mother believed that he would be safer in North Long Beach. While safety may have been better, the boy still grew up in poverty. From 4th to 8th grade Staples attended Optimal Christian Academy. Then he moved to Atlanta for 6 months to study with his sister. After coming back to California, the young man switched several high schools and even tried homeschooling.
Vincent was interested in music since childhood. In 2009, when he was almost 18 years old, the young man went to LA, where he met the members of the band Odd Future, Syd tha Kyd, Mike G, and Earl Sweatshirt. The young rapper was invited to help Earl Sweatshirt with the single “epaR”.
In 2011, the singer released his first mixtape, which he called Shyne Coldchain Vol. 1. A year later, he presented the second mixtape, Winter In Prague. It was produced by Michael Uzowuru.
In 2012, the artist continued working with Earl Sweatshirt. Later, he was invited to The Space Migration Tour by Mac Miller.
