Vince Staples Flashes Back In New Video "Nate" Ft. James Fauntleroy


This week’s reigning Mixtape Of The Week is Shyne Coldchain Vol. 2, the short but stunning effort from the young Long Beach rapper Vince Staples. And the tape’s best song is probably “Nate,” a collaboration with the R&B singer James Fauntleroy about the way Staples, as a kid, would idolize his criminal father even though he came to understand that his father was nobody to idolize. The song’s slow, sharp, devastating new video, from director Alexi Papalexopulos, shows a very young Staples, or a kid with similar experiences, experiencing some things at home that he should not have to experience.
