Vince Staples is featured as the cover star of the latest issues of Complex magazine. The Long Beach rapper sat down with journalist Touré to discuss a plethora of subjects, including rap beefs (and how they are corny), his forthcoming album Big Fish Theory, as well as the roles his parents and grandfather played in his life. He also enclosed how he would raise his future children and how he had bought his mom a house. Watch the interview above and head over to Complex for the full story

“I don’t wanna see people demean one another for no reason when they can have a phone conversation. Especially when they’re actually successful musicians, not like a thing. There is battle rap. I am a fan of that, but as far as the spitefulness of it, ’cause battle rappers are actually like all friends, for the most part, and they write about it, and have fun, and talk about it on Facebook later. It’s real f*cking cute, but all that other sh*t they can get the f*ck out of here. That sh*t is corny as f*ck. It’s like, ‘I’m gonna say really hurtful things about you for the sake of hip-hop. Oh.’”
