Tune in and turn up

Viewed by many as one of hip-hop’s most refreshing rappers, Vince Staples has proven himself to be every bit as entertaining when he’s not performing as when he is. He’s served up his acerbic and hilarious wit and insight on NBA players’ styleGQ’s “Man of the Year” award, and now, the Olympics.

“Fuck these grown ass people trying to ride these horses,” he says, looking at a horse from the equestrian event. “Well this is crazy, this looks like an FKA twigs video,” he says, watching the men’s diving, before comparing ping-pong players to Forrest Gump (“one the greatest Olympian we’ve ever had”) and revealing how and why he isn’t a fan of male gymnastics.

The Olympics are more often than not only as fun to watch as the people you’re watching with. We only wish we could invite Vince around. Check out the clip, courtesy of GQ, above.
