Vince Staples delivered on his promise.
Several days ago, the West Coast rapper announced he would drop a “special project dedicated to my biggest fan and supporter.”
“He said he needed something that represented him and where he comes from, so here it is,” Staples wrote on Instagram. “Thank you for years of loyalty, I do this for people like you.”

As artists we are nothing without the fans. I took time off from recording my next album to make a very special project dedicated to my biggest fan and supporter since day one. He said he needed something that represented him and where he comes from so here it is. Thank you for years of loyalty, I do this for people like you. See you all Thursday @ 9pm Poppy Street Time!
Shortly after the announcement, it was revealed that the project—titled FM!—would include guest appearances by Jay Rock, Kamaiyah, E-40, Earl Sweatshirt, and Tyga, as well as production by Kenny Beats, Cubeatz, and Hagler.
