Rapper Vince Staples on His New Netflix Show

Rapper Vince Staples is taking a break from music to make his first excursion into filmmaking with a new series called the Vince Staples Show.

Netflix developed The Vince Staples Show, an autobiographical genre-bending series.

According to the California rapper, the shift into cinema and television will allow him to grow and develop his talent.

“Lack of resources or lack of kind of understanding yourself does things to you when you’re younger. So as you get older and you have this opportunity, I have a why not approach to the way that I view things,” Staples says. “So anything I’m willing to lend myself to, if it helps me process life differently or better, or just kind of lend itself to creativity.”

The 30-year-old explains that his first introductions to cinema were through films that often seemed surreal and played with understandings of “perceived reality”.

” I’ve always liked the idea of, you know, the unknown or just a perceived reality down to something as simple as “Toy Story” or “A Bug’s Life,” dealing with perception, especially as a child,” he says. “As you get older, you learn about David Lynch, you learn about the Coen brothers, you learn about Roy Anderson. You watch “Donnie Darko” and you’re like, okay, ‘What’s happening? What’s not happening?’ Those kind of things always were interesting to me.”

The Vince Staples Show is out on Netflix on February 15.
