"The Vince Staples Show" Fictional Series Coming To Netflix, Rapper Will Star & Executive Produce
Fresh off the tails of joining Jack Harlow to film the White Men Can’t Jump reboot, Vince Staples has shared the exciting news that he’ll be collaborating with Netflix on a forthcoming fictional series, inspired loosely by the 29-year-old recording artist’s real life.
As Deadline reports, the project takes place in Long Beach, California and has been titled The Vince Staples Show. It will find the rapper himself not only starring, but also executive producing alongside the critically acclaimed creative Kenya Barris in conjunction with his Khalabo Ink Society.

Co-showrunners are Entergalactic creator Ian Edelman and executive producer Maurice Williams. This isn’t the first time that the duo has worked with Barris and Netflix, as they’ve spent the past year or so assisting Kid Cudi with his own original series on the streamer.
“I am excited to partner with Netflix and Kenya Barris on The Vince Staples Show,” the “Norf Norf” hitmaker shared in a statement. “This has been something I have been developing for some time, and I am happy it’s coming to fruition.”
