Following his weekend one Coachella performance, Vince Staples met up with Nadeska Alexis for an interview on the event’s live stream. The conversation took a rather weird turn, however, when Vince decided to change the topic to that of R. Kelly.
“I’ve got one more year on probation. When my last year of probation is over, I’m breaking speed limits—I’m doing wild shit,” Staples said. Despite a noticeably uncomfortable Alexis, the Long Beach rapper went on to add, “You don’t go to prison if you’re a black entertainer. Only if you’re a black gangster rapper. I’m changing my whole path.”
“Think about it: R. Kelly never went to jail, and he’s a fucking child molester. He’s a child molester and he pees on people and he can’t read and write, and he didn’t go to jail. I’m a good person—R. Kelly’s a piece of fucking shit. So, if piece of fucking shit R. Kelly didn’t go to jail for being a child molester and peeing on people and having a human trafficking ring in Atlanta, then I’ll be alright.”
Nadeska seemed bothered by Vince’s candid comments on R. Kelly, frantically trying to redirect the conversation. Staples kept at it, though, concluding, “Because R. Kelly a piece of shit? He don’t work here. They should have booked R. Kelly if they like R. Kelly so much. He would have pissed on somebody in the crowd. Because he pees on people.”
