Vince Staples, 'Blue Suede' (Live At SXSW 2016)

Vince Staples closed his set at NPR Music's SXSW showcase with this standout track from his 2014 EP Hell Can Wait, which he told NPR's Microphone Check last year was the song that helped him figure out his creative vision. The evening at Stubb's in Austin ended with Staples balancing on the barricade at the edge of the stage, held upright by fans.
