watch the music video for vince staples’ “señorita”

last week vince staples shared “señorita,” the first single off of his highly-anticipated debut album summertime ’06, which is due out june 30th.  the track features a future sample as its hook and staples, ever the diligent rhythmic chameleon, mimics the rapid-fire triplet delivery in his verses.  now staples has shared a visceral music video for “señorita,” helmed by director ian pons jewell.  the black and white footage appears to be a commentary on how outsiders may perceive staples’ neighborhood; a prophetic tattooed man gathers followers behind a bible emblazoned with staples’ initials, only to have them gunned down one by one.  staples weaves in and out of the carnage and disparity, symbolically escaping the circumstances when he jumps on the back of a truck to finish rapping under armed police protection.  watch the video below.
