- Artist: Vince Staples
- Track: Fire
- Producer: Anthony Kilhoffer
Apologies for dipping into cliché, but it's true: sometimes the title says it all. The latest single off Vince Staples's freshly-released Def Jam debut is called “Fire” and, sure enough, lyrical flames are exactly what you'll find on the record. In addition to that obvious interpretation, though, there's a darker double-meaning at play; over Anthony Kilhoffer's grimy production, the Long Beach repper mixes block talk with brimstone-scented religious imagery, concluding on the hook, “I'm prolly finna go to hell anyway.” The accompanying visuals, set in a church, drive the point home. For this moody banger and much more, cop the Hell Can Wait EP, available now in stores and online.
