CURRENT: Vince Staples – “Get Paid” [ft. Desi Mo]

Vince Staples returns this summer with Summertime ’06, the follow-up to his Hell Can Wait EP released last year.  Today, he unveiled a teaser for his new disc, the Desi Mo-assisted cut “Get Paid.” The song works both as something to get faded to and as a clarifying remark. “Get paid, get paid, get paid,” repeats Staples on the chorus. While it initially sounds like a form of braggadocio, it is actually a forceful mantra, one driven by determination. As Desi Mo asserts at the end of “Get Paid,” “money is the means of control.” Get paid, indeed.
