27-year-old rapper Vince Staples is hilarious without trying.

This is the same kid that launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise $2 Million to shut up and stop rapping forever when people complained about his performances.

He has a natural way with words that’s just all-around engaging.

I, like many, was familiar with Vince as a rapper, but when he digitally made his rounds on a few podcasts, I gravitated toward his personality.

I’ve said many times that he needs his own podcast. I imagine it will be funny, sarcastic, and thought-provoking.

“I’m just trying to make sure that I’m becoming the person I’m supposed to be.”

Staples seems wise beyond his years, sometimes the exact opposite from his peers.

I did notice that Vince was quiet, but didn’t realize it was an intentional break.

So I was extremely excited when I saw Desus Nice tweet the GQ article this morning, clearly, the Brand remains strong.

Below are 9 things we learned from GQ’s Vince Staples interview:

  1. Vince has a self-titled EP dropping this summer (Can’t Wait)!
  2. He has a Netflix show on the way (This might be better than a podcast)
  3. His full-length album (Ramona Park Broke My Heart) is in the works
  4. He brushes his teeth like a psychopath (read the article)
  5. Long Beach raccoons are famous (read the article)
