BIG FISH THEORY includes the unanimously hailed track “BagBak” and the newly released single “Big Fish,” both of which are offered as instant grat tracks with album pre-orders. The “Big Fish” video has amassed over 1.5 million views since premiere last week on Vince’s website. The song was named Best New Track by Pitchfork, while Billboard states that “Its bouncy beat…pulls from old school Long Beach G-Funk but somehow keeps an edge to it, and Staples' flow bumps and bends along with it as he juxtaposes his former life with one of success.”

BIG FISH THEORY is the long-awaited follow-up to Summertime ’06, Vince’s universally praised debut album of 2015.  The monster 20-track long-player was called “a modern gangster rap classic” (New York Times) and cemented Vince’s status as one of music's most creative young MCs. In August 2016, he released Prima Donna, the celebrated seven-track EP that was accompanied by a ten-minute short film directed by Nabil Elderkin. Vince has worked with dozens of today’s hottest artists.  Most recently; he has been featured on tracks with Gorillaz  ("Ascension"), Flume ("Smoke & Retribution"), Schoolboy Q (“Ride Out”), and GTA (“Little Bit Of This”).

Vince will begin a North American summer tour opening for UK band Gorillaz on July 10 at ACC in Toronto, two weeks after the release of BIG FISH THEORY
