Vince Staples is one of hip hop’s most talked about up and coming lyricists. The Long Beach native recently chopped it up with HotNewHipHop and had some interesting things to say about Noisey’s Welcome To Atlanta documentary.

“I love Noisey, I love VICE. I just don’t think we need to highlight people making crack in 2015. There’s no need to show people with crack and guns. Where I come from, you’ll go to jail for that immediately. They will come to your house, and you will go to jail. Why are we showing that to kids? That’s Atlanta to you? That’s a thriving city with a lot of great shit, and you’re showing people selling crack and rappers with guns. That shit is stupid.”
