“Bagbak” – Vince Staples

Right off the bat, there is an unbridled and uncontainable sense of energy in this song. The beat very much sounds like a garage beat with electronica elements to it. The breaks in the pace are janky in nature, which sounds so good. In addition to the beats and flow of the song, the lyrics round out the brilliance of it. Vince isn’t a quintessential conscious rapper, but he raps with so much creativity and purposeful intent, and he speaks very substantially in this song about social issues. Vince is king!
