Vince Staples – Summertime ’06

I once read that the cover was inspired by Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures. I can say, this album has a similar vibes. Couldn’t get too deep into the lyrics, but the flows were nice for sure. The beats are simply otherworldly, so eerie and atmospheric, and in 58 minutes, the album never gets boring sonically. Loved the Kanye influence in here, lots of distorted harmonic autotune background vocals. Overall, I really regret not checking this when it came out. 8/10.
