On Wednesday, Vince Staples launched a GoFundMe page. The rapper said in a video message that if he raised $2 million in 30 days, he would retire. “No songs, no interviews, no anything,” he said, “Get off of my dick or fund my lifestyle. The choice is yours.” Later it emerged that the page was part of a promotional campaign for a new song, called "Get The Fuck Off My Dick."

GoFundMe took down the page on Thursday afternoon, and Vince Staples responded on Twitter with some wry outrage:

"Get The Fuck Off My Dick" will be available to stream Thursday night at midnight.
