Vince Staples is featured in Sprite’s “Obey Your Thirst” documentary series with Fader. The Long Beach, California rapper talks about being his own leader.

“It gets kinda cluttered when everybody’s trying to follow the leader,” Staples says, “and the leader doesn’t even know where they’re going. None of us know where we’re going. All you can do is follow that gut feeling.”

Staples also discusses his upbringing.

“Nothing’s harder than what I had to do growing up,” he says. “It’s important to have a voice speaking for where I come from because I never had one. Without that voice, all of this is for nothing.”
