Vince Staples' explosive debut, Summertime '06, might allude to a pivotal season in his life but by any measure, Summertime '15 is shaping up to be a damn good couple of months for the buzzy rapper. On the heels of his well-received record release, Staples gives us the video for album track, "Norf Norf," which sees him staring into the camera and rapping from the back of a squad car, central booking, a table (where a cop has him pinned down) and, ultimately, behind bars. Set to psychedelic beats and languid drum snares, Staples raps lines like "I ain't never ran from nothin' but the police" while maintaining a sense of confidence and dignity while he journeys through the U.S. correctional system. Give the clip a watch, above.
