Vince Staples: "The next project will be Shyne Coldchain Vol. 2. I haven't done a solo mixtape since the first one. I'm just trying to go back to crafting a full project, trying to keep it cohesive. There's not really any features on it, just a couple of people on hooks and that's about it. Even with the hooks I wrote most of them, it's just that I got people to help me do parts that I couldn't do myself.

"The production comes from a lot of the same people I've been working with. Michael Uzowuru has some beats on it. Earl and Childish Major have a beat on it. And then I got some production from some new people. No I.D. gave me a beat. Evidence from Dilated Peoples worked on a lot of beats and helped me get the project together.

"I want to do the same thing I've been doing on a higher level. If it ain't broke don't fix it. But as I get older, I'm going to mature. The music is going to change over time regardless. I want to put it out before the end of the year. When it's done, we'll put it out."
