Vince Staples headlining NPR Music's 2016 SXSW showcase at Stubb's BBQ.

Ahead of a long string of dates with Kilo Kish — dubbed The Life Aquatic Tour — the Long Beach rapper Vince Staples has released a new track. "BagBak" is punchy piece of Detroit club music with gritty beats that sound like DJ Assault mining Kraftwerk for dirt. It's a stylistic about-face from the wooze of "Norf Norf," highlighting the hard-hitting noise undercurrent in Staples' delivery.
