In Vince Staples' Long Beach, the only colors that matter are blue, red, and brown. His latest video "Blue Suede" is all grey save for these choice shades spread across a spectrum of extremes: bloods, crips, pubs, dems, fire, ice, with only the color of earth and skin and malt liquor offered as a middle ground. Vince rattles off shouts to local prison yards and is still pining over those Jordans--turns out he was eyeing the Powder Blue IIIs along. His album Hell Can Wait is on the way.
