Vince Staples - Hands Up

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: Vince Staples
  • Track: Hands Up
  • Producer: No I.D.
  • Album: Hell Can Wait EP

When you're told to put your Hands Up, it can mean one of three things: you're at a rap concert, you're being robbed or you're under arrest. It's in the last sense that listeners should take the title of Vince Staples's latest single, which finds him taking aim at racist, power-tripping cops and the corrupt justice system that supports them. Over an No I.D.'s murky street boardwork, the L.A. native “refuse[s] the right to be silent,” rhyming with righteous anger about the fates of Dengelo Lopez, Tyler Woods and other casualties of police brutality. For this record, the previously-featured Blue Suede and much more, purchase Vince's Hell Can Wait EP when it hits record stores and online retailers September 23.
