Big Fish Theory

Vince Staples releases his eagerly anticipated second album Big Fish Theory. Big Fish Theory is one of the most ambitious, dazzling hip-hop albums of 2017 so far – neck-and-neck with Kendrick’s Damn. Right from fiery opener Crabs In A Bucket, Staples’ propulsive, hypnotic flow has never sounded stronger. His lyrics, meanwhile, are emotionally calibrated for 2017: antsy, alienated and occasionally overcome with nihilistic despair at the state of the world. And his bleak lyrical brilliance is perfectly matched by Big Fish Theory’s experimental production. He’s always had a taste for harsh electronic funk, and he embraces that creative urge more eagerly than ever. There’s slo-mo techno, dystopian G-funk, field recordings, growling industrialism; abstract, icy grooves more indebted to Berlin than Atlanta. (Nme)
