Vince Staples is hitting the road this October with his new Black In America tour, taking his latest album, Dark Times, across the nation. He’ll kick things off in Atlanta and wrap up in his hometown of Los Angeles in November.

The tour spans 13 dates and includes major stops like New York City, Washington, D.C., and Seattle. Fans can expect soulful performances as Baby Rose opens for the Long Beach-raised rapper on select dates.

Dark Times, released on May 24, holds special significance for Vince. It’s his last album with Def Jam, a label he’s been with for over a decade. Speaking with Rolling Stone, Vince shared his mixed feelings about the future: ‘I haven’t really got to that part of the bridge yet. Music is music, and we’re in a new time as far as how these things are approached. I’m not rushing to go into any new contracts or anything like that. But, I was given an opportunity as a teenager by Def Jam and Universal, so I’m very appreciative of that. But as far as now, I’m not sure how that’ll end up happening.’

Besides his music career, Vince is also making waves on screen. He’s confirmed a second season for his Netflix show, The Vince Staples Show. The announcement came via Variety and was quickly followed by Netflix on Instagram. Vince himself expressed his excitement: ‘The Vince Staples Show is back! The people have spoken and the most riveting, captivating, and polarizing show on Netflix is returning for season 2. Get ready for hijinks that only a mother can love. Thank you, Netflix!’

The series, which premiered in February with just five episodes, was well-received despite Vince joking about its minimal marketing budget. Initially announced in September 2022, the show is loosely based on Vince’s life and is set in Long Beach. Alongside starring, Vince is also an executive producer, collaborating with Kenya Barris and his Khalabo Ink Society.

This isn’t Vince’s first foray into acting. He had a role in the 2023 film White Men Can’t Jump and a recurring spot on Abbott Elementary. It’s clear that Vince Staples is not just a rapper but a multi-talented entertainer making his mark both on stage and screen.

With a promising tour ahead and the return of his hit Netflix show, Vince Staples is set for a busy and exciting end to 2024.
