Vince Staples Recalls His Tumultuous Childhood in ‘Nate’ Video

Subscribe to TheBoombox on

Vince Staples released a video today (Mar. 20) for ‘Nate,’ one of the standout tracks from his new mixtape ‘Shyne Coldchain Vol. 2.’

The clip, directed by Alexi Papalexopoulos, gives us a P.O.V. look into the Staples’ life as a young kid. Among the things we witness in the video is his father, a former drug dealer, who gets arrested for a domestic dispute with his mother. We also see the corner boys on the block selling dope. Don’t blink or else you will miss a cameo by Staples himself.

‘Nate’ features the soulful vocals of James Fauntleroy and was produced by Scoop DeVille. The ‘Shyne Coldchain, Vol. 2′ mixtape, which features a cameo appearance from Jhene Aiko on ‘Oh You Scared,’ is available now. You can listen to the project here.
