Vince Staples Calls Out Pitchfork On Twitter
Vincent Staples is notorious for being a Twitter troll–probably because he’s really, really good at it. Pitchfork posted a story about Staples on Friday detailing the Long Beach rapper’s comment’s about Eminem’s BET freestyle at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art for Pitchfork’s In Sight Out series.
The article about his comments reads: “Vince Staples shared his thoughts on the viral hit. “It was trash,” he said. “He can do better.” Staples went on to assert that if he were to rap those lines, it would be taken less seriously: “If I said, ‘This is for Colin/Ball up a fist/And keep it balled up/Like Donald the bitch,’ they would be like, ‘Get this n***a out of here.’”
For anyone who’s ever seen an Interview of Vince’s before, though his humor is indeed very dry, it’s not hard to come to the conclusion that probably almost everything he’s saying is in jest. After seeing Pitchfork plaster “Vince Staples Calls Eminem’s Trump Freestyle ‘Trash'” headlines everywhere, he responded to the publication on Twitter.
In the middle of his twitter fingers saga, Pitchfork issued a correction and told their readers what Staples said was, “all in good fun.”
Word to Vince for always providing the comedic relief day in and day out and for not being afraid to call out publications for their improper portrayal of him. We think the best part of Em’s freestyle was the darkskin dudes standing behind him, too.
