Vince Staples is as uncompromising as rappers come these days, and his debut project Summertime ’06 is a testament to the real world depths he’s willing to plunge through in order to hook and engage. He’s proven this before with the video for single “Señorita”, a shot at suburban complicity with urban struggles, and the video for “Norf Norf”, easily one of the most popular songs off the album, almost matches it in pure intensity, if not in message.

The three verses in the video are dedicated to the arresting, booking, and jailing of Vince and some of his boys from the block, with Vince rapping the mantra “I ain’t never ran from nothin’ but the police”. Between these and videos for “Blue Suede” and “Screen Door” from his Hell Can Wait EP from last year, Staples’ songs continually make for gripping watching.
