Vince Staples Lights Up Flume’s New Banger “Smoke & Retribution”

Vince Staples, another young gun with a massive 2015, is already turning up in the new year with some flame. Australian beatsman Flume has recruited the Long Beach native for a pair of his hissing verses on the new track “Smoke & Retribution,” which premiered today on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 program. Here you’ll find Staples blazing through the relentless, synth-loaded suite with fellow Australian producer and vocalist Kucka stepping in for the hook (though if I didn’t know any better, I’d have said it were Nao.) Warm up with Flume, Vince Staples and Kucka’s new single below and catch your boy on the road throughout the next few months. Grab a copy of his critically-cherished Summertime ’06 LP on iTunes today.
