Vince Staples has always been THE most comical rapper in the industry, never caring what anyone has to say about him or his politics.

Citing recent complaints about his shows, Staples urges people either pony up or "get the fuck off my dick".

A day after kicking off a crowdfunding campaign in search of $2 million United States dollars to "shut the fuck up forever", Vince Staples has delivered a new single.

Thank the haters, who seem to dog Vince wherever he goes in his music career, from his Hell Can Wait EP to the dark, confident debut album Summertime '06 to his most recent release, 2017's Big Fish Theory. He offered his detractors the option of "funding his lifestyle" so he won't have to make songs using "robot video game beats". We'd like to apologise for that.

Secondary, well this is tertiary I guess, we would like to give you an alternative.

"No songs, no interviews, no anything", he explains of his plans if the money is raised, "and you will never hear from me again".

Earlier this week, Vince Staples launched a GoFundMe campaign to challenge his detractors to either "get off my dick, or fund my lifestyle". Fans have been leaving messages of support for the artist in the comments section on the page, with one writing: "Fuck those haters man, I love your music, old and new, and just saw you live and it was awesome!"
