‘This is another take on myself’
According to Pitchfork, the California native shed light on his latest single via a press release where he stated that this new project is another take on himself. “It really gives much more information about me that wasn’t out there before. That’s why I went with that title.” He continued, “I feel like I’ve been trying to tell the same story. As you go on in life, your point of view changes. This is another take on myself that I might not have had before.”
The song ‘Law of Averages’ was produced by Staples’ frequent collaborator Kenny Beats and was released via Blacksmith Recordings/Motown Records. Talking about lyrics, Staples opens the track with a verse and then later goes into the chorus. He first raps, “F**k a bitch, I don't trust no b***h with my government/ F**k a friend, I don't want no friends with no open hands/ Count my bands, all alone at home, don't you call my phone/ Everyone that I've ever known asked me for a loan/ Leave me 'lone, .44 Stallone, get a [expletive] a gone.” In the chorus, he spits, “Cherry Ave, Downey Ave, ho, you average/ Louis bag, Gucci bag, you got baggage/ I will never give my money to a bad b***h/ I will never give my money to a bad b***h.” Speaking of video, the 2-minute-26-second video features Vince Staples chilling out with his buddies in the neighborhood. The video has been shot in a very different style giving a dark aesthetic vibe to the song.
