Impressive debut, has a particularly trepid, impressionistic quality that makes it stand out even if he still has(had) a way to go as a performer and mc.

Yeah, this is really good, but it'd be better if it were 60 minutes of "Norf Norf."

I'm really really digging the lyricism, flows, and one of the best productions on any hip hop album I've heard recently.

A solid album but feels a little too long as it feels like it drags in some parts. Great lyrics and some original production in sections. Recommended to any hip-hop fan.

From Seab
One of the best hip hop albums of 2015. Although there aren't too many stand out tracks, I feel that it does flow fairly well, and the delivery from Staples is good enough, and the album does capture that summertime feel.

It took me a few listens to get into this one, but I've come to really like it. His flow is a little hard to love at first, because it's so plain, but it's impressive how he's able to say so much in one breath and just endlessly string off lines. The production sounds simple at first too but reveals itself to be pretty menacing and powerful. Not saying this is an acquired taste or that it requires multiple listens, but I can see it being difficult at first if you're expecting something else. I don't think this is the best thing Staples could make though, and I look forward to seeing him expand and maybe add more variety to his music.

The lyrics and production are what make this album. The delivery is a bit meh.

I aint even bullshitting when I say this record has the best hip-hop production of the year so far (that's right even better than TPAB). Thes trings, the synths, the samples all cater to the hopelessly drab atmosphere that this provocative record employs throughout its noticeable running time. As for Vince, his songwriting is unique and thought-provoking, but still gets caught up in a slurry of hip-hop cliches ("lets have a track about gangbanging and the next one be about fucking bitches. repeat"). Not that the rapping's not on point, I just think Vince can address many broader categories and veer-off in different directions than his contemporaries.
However, production still wins the day here.

good kid, m.A.A.d. city + Yeezus = Summertime '06
I love it. Standout after standout after standout and a very cohesive sound and great lyricism all the way through make this my 2nd favorite rap album of 2015, right after TPAB
