Vince Staples is one of our favorite rising artists from the West Coast and we have been awaiting his latest project ever since we heard his standout Stolen Youth EP. Well that moment has arrived with the release of mixtape Shyne Coldchain II and we now have visuals for arguably its best song “Nate”, featuring some exceptional vocals from James Fauntleroy. “Nate” is a personal record from Vince Staples that gets into his early childhood and how he idolized his father for all of the wrong reasons. The music video portrays a sad day in the life for a young Vince Staples who has to experience some troubling events at home. “Nate” shows the artistic growth Staples has already developed so young in his promising career and the visuals for the song further enhance its quality.
