After several savory samples, and with no prior announcement, Californian natives Vince Staples and Michael Uzowuru finally bless the world with their full-length collaboration, Winter In Prague. Over the course of 10 tracks, producer Uzowuru crafts cold, cruel yet incredibly compelling instrumentals (all inspired by Kanye West’s “Diamonds From Sierra Leone”), providing the perfect compliment to Staples’ lackadaisical and often detached rhymes.
The two may have been best known for their ties with Odd Future (Uzowuru producing Domo Genesis’ “Cashmere,” Staples guesting on Earl Sweatshirt’s EARL cut, “epaR“) prior, but Winter In Prague should provide both West Coast hopefuls with their own reference points.
