Vince Staples unleashed a new snippet of his upcoming track, "War Ready," on Sunday night during the latest episode of the popular HBO show Ballers. The track is produced by James Blake and features a tingling verse from Vince and a classic sample of André 3000's verse from "ATLiens."

Vince Staples has his Prima Donna EP on the way soon, so it's possible "War Ready" will be part of that, but as of now, we don't have any information on the track. Staples has previously praised 3000 in interviews, citing him as a major influence on his career. Fans have been waiting for new music from 3000 for a while now. Earlier this year, he expressed interest in releasing "some kind of project," but so far we haven't seen anything. Considering the snippet of "War Ready" only contains a sample of an old OutKast song, the song in its current form doesn't even indicate that 3000 has been back in the studio. We'll have to wait and see if there's original material on the full version.
