Earl Sweatshirt, Vince Staples, Remy Banks

Sun., March 29, 5:30 p.m.

Recently Long Beach rapper Vince Staples has been popping up on tracks from some of the Internet’s favorite new rappers, not to make mention of his contributions to Common’s Nobody’s Smiling. Many of those performances are reminiscent of the human decoys in the Where’s Waldo series who sport red-and-white-striped shirts—though generally on point, they simply aren’t what I’m looking for. But the 21-year-old Staples asserts himself in a big way on his debut EP, last year’s Hell Can Wait (Def Jam). With a touch of southern twang and a cool-in-the-heat swagger, he steers low-riding LA hip-hop towards the darkest shadows. The one-two punch of “Hands Up” and “Blue Suede” plays with the shrill sounds of police sirens in the context of a pair of LA’s iconic rap sounds: ratchet and G-funk. Staples juggles the bacchanalian aesthetic of both and lays down blunt observations of street life with expert flair. —Leor Galil $35, $28.50 in advance
