Sprite Presents: Obey Your Thirst – Vince Staples (Ep. 3)

In episode #3 of Sprite and The Fader's docu-series, "Obey Your Thirst," Long Beach, Calif. rapper Vince Staples is the focus.

In the clip, the rapper offers up a perspective of life in his hometown and how it's inspired his life and music.

"I want to be an example for my homies and say you can do whatever you want to do. It's up to me to push them and push this community. You never know what could spark the next man, or spark the next idea so I just want to play my part. I'm lucky to be who I am. You're not supposed to be here right now, so the fact of the matter that I'm alive and have a voice - that means everything."
