Being even remotely famous or talented would be a fuckload of fun, however, having to deal with internet haters and people who just always seem to have an opinion would undoubtedly suck ass.
Rapper Vince Staples is aiming to combat the hate by presenting an alternative: pay him $2 million to fund his lifestyle and he’ll shut up forever or “get the fuck off his dick”.
It seems to be in response to people saying his recent nationwide tour with Tyler, The Creator was a bit lacking, however, I’ve seen the bloke live before and can definitely confirm that he knows how to get a crowd slappin’ their knees.
He says in the video:
“Hey everybody, my name is Vince.
First and foremost I hope you’re having a great day, I really do. Second, we’ve got a lot of complaints about our recent show performances, energy on stage, production choice; I think one person said ‘it sounds like we’re rapping on robot video game beats.’ We would like to apologize for that.
Secondary, well this is tertiary I guess, we would like to give you an alternative. On GoFundMe.com you can decide to donate to the cause of $2 million dollars, which will allow me to shut the fuck up forever and you will never hear from me again. No songs, no interviews, no anything. If not, you can choose to let me do what the fuck I want to do, when I want to do it. Get off of my dick, or fund my lifestyle. The choice is yours. Either way we appreciate you.”
He says for $2M he will:
– Move to Palmdale
– Buy a Honda
– Year supply of soups for the homies locked down
– Buy a puppy
Seems like some pretty normal goals for a freshly retired rap superstar, but at the time of writing it looks like Vince has only just crossed the $1000 threshold so I guess people love Staples a bit more than they like to admit.
If you feel like shutting Vince up forever, have a gander at the link here.
Why everybody playing broke right now? I knew yall loved me.
