Vince Staples first came to the attention of the hiphop world in 2010 via his association with the various threads of the Odd Future gang, nabbing guest verses on Earl Sweatshirt and Mike G's solo efforts. The young Californian has since catapulted beyond his peers, particularly this year with the release of his mixtape, Shyne Coldchain Vol. 2. With the help of producers No ID and Scoop DeVille, Staples is by turns sinister (the scrabbling, challenging "Shots"), ruminative ("Nate," where he explores his fractious relationship with his father), and boastful (the chest-pounding, Wu-Tang-inspired "Trunk Rattle"). He's joined by Audio Push, a duo of Golden Staters who are deeply tied in with the limber-limbed dance movement known as jerkin'. ROBERT HAM
