Vince Staples – Big Fish

Slaps Harder Than Your Mom


Vince Staples is by far one of the most underrated artists in hip hop. Big Fish is the new single from his upcoming album Big Fish Theory. The Long Beach Rapper will be releasing the album on June 23rd. Directed by David Helman, Vince finds himself on a slowly sinking sailboat in shark-infested waters. This song really slaps hard with the use of big drums, handclaps, and synths. Let us know what you think in the comments.

Big Fish Lyrics

[Hook]
I was up late night ballin’
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousands
I was up late night ballin’
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousands
I was up late night ballin’
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousands
I was up late night ballin’
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousands

[Verse 1]
I was up late night balling
So far from my past misfortune
No sleepin’, late nights no eatin’
Gun squeezing, I’m a real Artesian
Ramona, I was round that corner
Still down, I’m a Norf Norf soldier
G slide right down Sawyer
When we slide, you won’t see morning
Another story of a young black man
Tryna make it up out that jam god damn
Bag back, let me make my bands, got plans
If you hatin’ don’t shake my hand
Take it easy homie
Reminiscin’ sitting in that Benz
Of the 22 bus stop way back when
With the 22, 5 shot eyes on scan
For the click clack clap
Or the boop bop bam cuz

[Hook]
I was up late night ballin’
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousands
I was up late night ballin’
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousands
I was up late night ballin’
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousands
I was up late night ballin’
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousands

[Verse 2]
It’s funny I was going crazy not too long ago
Women problems every morning like the Maury show
Swimming upstream while I’m tryna keep my bread
From the sharks make me wanna put the hammer to my head
At the park politicin’ with the kids
Tryna get em on a straight path, got the lames mad
Know they hate to see me make cash, got the space dash
In the foreign with the GPS addressed to your mama house
Compensation conversations what I’m all about
Took the smart route, never been marked out
Shoulda been dead broke, shoulda been chalked out
But it didn’t happen, now it’s time to get it cracking
Quarterbackin’ like I’m 40 Water
Mix the holy water with the Voss
Wanna be the boss then you gotta pay the cost
Learned it from the Dogg I’m from Long Beach
That’s the city where the skinny carry strong heat

[Hook]
I was up late night ballin’
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousands
I was up late night ballin’
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousands
I was up late night ballin’
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousands
I was up late night ballin’
Countin’ up hundreds by the thousands
