Just under two weeks after announcing that he’d follow up last year’s stellar debut LP Summertime ’06 with a new EP, Prima Donna, Vince Staples has released the project, appearing today on Beats 1 Radio with Zane Lowe to debut it, and releasing it to the public immediately after. The project wasn’t expected to be released until tomorrow.
Prima Donna on Spotify and Apple Music now.

Staples is well known for his witty personality, which shows up in his lyrics as well as in appearances in various entertaining video endeavors online. The EP, which, among its six tracks, has songs that feature ASAP Rocky and Kilo Kish, is available on Apple Music and Spotify right now.
After strong guest appearances earlier this year on major releases from ScHoolboy Q and Flume, Staples is stepping back into the lead role with Prima Donna. The EP has gained rave reviews early, being named Stereogum‘s Album of the Week, and receiving a positive review from Spin. You’ll want to hear this from one of the hottest rappers around.
