As we reported on moments ago, Zane Lowe is currently giving fans their first listen of Vince Staples' Prima Donna EP, which officially drops tomorrow. The Beats 1 radio host is not only playing the EP in full (which includes features from A$AP Rocky and Kilo Kish), he's also interviewing the rapper in between cuts. You can check that out here.
Zane has gone ahead and released one of the EP cuts for the worldwideweb to enjoy, "Smile." It's heavy on the guitar, turning into a psychedelic rock ballad as it progresses-- mainly in the second half. The first half finds Vince's delivering a jumpy flow (his lyrics though) to pair with disconnected guitar licks. It's ambitious, but works well. Does this song have you excited for Prima Donna?
You can also peep the extended version of Vince's "06" cut here, which dropped yesterday.
I know they hoping that it's right back to the ghettos I go
I know my pigment is not that of a business man
I know they think I'm ignorant
I'm fucking up my privilege, I know
Money come and go, so money not my motive no more
I made enough to know I never make enough for my soul
I turn my back on my friends, I turn my back on my home
I left the streets where I grown
To chase the yellow brick road
