Watch Vince Staples Perform '3230' At SXSW The bounciest Staples beat imaginable had the Stubb's crowd hyped.

SXSW Music Festival

Vince Staples, '3230' (Live At SXSW 2016)

A gimlet-eyed take on bracing for the worst and hoping for better (the song title is a reference to an address where Staples lived) over the bounciest Vince Staples beat imaginable, courtesy of No I.D. This is Staples, though, so on stage at Stubb's, chants of "hands up" and the funereal horn that slides through the back end of each verse added an unshakable weight to the song.
