Vince Staples, who released one of our Honorable Album Mentions in Summertime '06, tells California Sunday Magazine that in two years he may stop rapping. The novice said: "You’re out of your goddamn mind if you think I’m going to be doing this music shit for more than two more years." He added: “It’s not that I don’t care about rap. I’m not a fan of rap culture... [rap] doesn’t progress with the times. I think that’s unfortunate, because rap culture is an extension of black culture, no matter what anybody says. That shows we have to get better. I don’t like being on the road. Health-wise it’s not good for me, and I have other things I’d rather do. But it’s not about you at this point; you’re doing it for the fans; you’re performing the songs.”
