Hailing from Long Beach, Vince Staples exploded onto the scene as a real lyricist, putting on for West Coast Hip-Hop the best way he knew how. And while his music is inspired directly by his life experiences he’s lived through and continues to live through, he now shifts gears and dives head-first into the acting space.

On Monday, February 15th, Vince Staples graced the red carpet at the Netflix Tudum Theater in the heart of Hollywood, California, in celebration of the launch of his new show titled The Vince Staples Show. The comedic series was created by Staples himself, alongside executive producer Kenya Barris who’s best known for creating the sitcom black-ish


Described as a “a limited series of satirical tales,” the show is loosely based on Staples’ real life. The synopsis states: “Who’s Vince Staples? Well, that’s a tricky question. He’s kind of famous, but he’s not. He’s kind of rich, but he’s not. He’s also kind of a criminal. But he’s…not? Follow him on his daily adventures, where anything that can go wrong usually does.”

All five episodes of The Vince Staples Show hit Netflix this Friday on February 15th.

The Source had the pleasure of chatting with Vince Staples on the carpet.

What was the moment you fell in love w/ Hip-Hop?

Shit, I’m still waiting on that moment. But I like it a lot. I think it’s been around forever. I’m glad, you don’t gotta make that decision. It’s just how it happens, but I appreciate everything it’s done for me. I’ma make it for a very long time hopefully.

Do you prefer acting or rapping? 

It’s not really a competition. It’s pretty much all the same thing. It’s all a way to get your thoughts out.

How’s that Netflix bag?

It’s cool. It’s alright. 9 to 5, Home Depot. Regular shit. It’s regular.
