VINCE STAPLES is a multi-hyphenate musician, actor, writer, and creative known for integrating his witty personality and sharp sense of humor into his writing. 

Most recently, Vince’s scripted series, The Vince Staples Showin which he wrote, produced, and starred in released on Netflix to rave reviews on February 15. Set in Long Beach and loosely based on his own life, the show is a fresh new series of subversive, satirical tales full of comedic tension filtered through his irrefutable point of view. It is executive produced by Staples, Kenya Barris, Ian Edelman, Maurice Williams, Corey Smyth and Calmatic, director of “White Men Can’t Jump.” 

On the small screen, Vince was a recurring guest star “Maurice” in Season 2 of Quinta Brunson’s Abbott Elementary. His surprise appearance as Gregory’s best friend and Janine’s new love interest quickly made him the fan-favorite. Vince also starred alongside Sinqua Walls and Jack Harlow in Disney’s highly anticipated reboot of White Men Can't Jump released on May 19, 2023 on Hulu. Staples’ additional film credits include “Black Panther,” “Creed” (2015) and “6 Underground” (2019). 

In July 2021, Staples dropped an intimate self-titled album, that welcomed fans to his Long Beach hometown. Entirely produced by Kenny Beats, the LP earned critical acclaim, with NPR Music calling it “powerful” and Rolling Stone praising Vince for his “brilliantly concise song writing” and “knack for combining brevity and sly wordplay.” 

The momentum from those creative Staples sessions produced his most recent album: Ramona Park Broke My Heart, which debuted worldwide at #1 on Spotify and #5 on Apple Music. Long Beach’s Ramona Park neighbourhood is dear to Vince’s heart, which is why he uses it in many of his lyrics and even his album title. After touring with Tyler the Creator across North America Spring 2022, Staples partnered with Amazon to host a live-streamed special event on August 23, 2022, in LA titled A Walk Through Ramona Park which gave fans across the globe a window into his creative process behind his iconic discography. 

In July 2021, Vince released his first graphic novel, Limbo Beach with Z2 Comics, which follows the newest member of the Wunderlosts -- a band of misfit teenage raiders -- on a journey to discover the truth about the park—and himself—in a tale that is equal parts Lord of the Flies and The Warriors. 

His music credits include the Black Reel Awards-nominated “Waiting for My Moment,” written for “Creed,” which he shared with Donald Glover, Jhené Aiko, Ryan Coogler and Ludwig Göransson, and a nomination for the International Online Cinema Awards (INOCA) Halfway Award for Best Original Song, “Opps” for “Black Panther,” which he shared with Kendrick Lamar, Sounwave and Ludwig Göransson. 

Staples’ previous acting credits include voicing the title character in Adult Swim’s “Lazor Wulf” and playing himself in an episode of “Insecure.”
