Vince Staples left folks with a philosophical tackle gift-giving that’s now resurfacing and making people assume … yeah, the man has a degree — it’s kinda the other of selfless.
The Lengthy Seashore rapper sat down with Complicated’s Speedy Morman again in April to plug his new album, ‘Ramona Park Broke My Coronary heart,’ and throughout the dialogue … they landed with regards to presents, one thing VS apparently does NOT prefer to partake in.
Watch … he tells the host that he doesn’t like presents — giving or receiving them, apparently. He explains that, in his thoughts, the act itself is often extra so in regards to the individual really giving the present than it’s in regards to the one getting it … counterintuitive to the idea itself.
Vince’s reply is illuminating when requested why he’s not a gift-giver … “As a result of presents aren’t selfless. Like, if someone offers you a present, proper, they need you to love it as a result of it’s actually about them — it’s not about you. They wish to really feel like they did one thing best for you.”
He provides … “If someone gave you a present and also you had been like, ‘Alright, fasho, thanks,’ they gonna be mad.” Vince says the gift-giver is usually looking for reassurance they’re an excellent individual.
As this clip will get picked up anew this weekend, the jokes are flying … some at Vince’s expense, and a few simply on the basic situation of reacting negatively to presents — which is fairly humorous. Vince himself caught wind of all of the chatter, and thinks it’s not that deep.
Necessary issues throughout, certainly.
