Vince Staples Headline Shows AUS/NZ 2018
Already announced for Falls Festival and Field Days, the critically acclaimed rapper brings with him the momentum of his stellar sophomore album, Big Fish Theory, to theatres in Sydney and Melbourne.
After making his debut appearance on Earl Sweatshirt’s first record, Staples went to work on his own material eventually producing four acclaimed mixtapes. With his first album, Summer ’06 now firmly under his belt, the progressive hip-hop extraordinaire returned harder than ever with his eagerly anticipated 2017 album, Big Fish Theory. The album took no time in hitting #17 in the ARIA charts, reaching #1 on the Apple Hip-Hop charts and the #1 spot on triple j’s Hit list. A slew of top-tier artists feature on the record including Kendrick Lamar, Ty Dollar Sign and A$AP Rocky.
From start to finish, Staples pulls together the world of dance and electronic to produce a politically charged soundboard of angst, dystopian and passion. The production is experimental and hard-hitting, packed with energy that is only overshadowed by his versatility as an emcee. The seasoned artist is respected as one of the most captivating voices in modern day hip-hop and the love he receives in Australia testifies to his longevity as one of the greats.
This is an opportunity to catch a hip-hop virtuoso live and in person this summer.
