Vince Staples has announced that he'll be following up 2015's fantastic Summertime '06 later this month with the PRIMA DONNA EP, which will be arriving on August 26. As he previously stated earlier this year, the EP will follow the story of a rising rapper who turns to suicide and will be told in reverse chronology. The EP will feature Kilo Kish and A$AP Rocky, and will feature six brand new songs.

The forthcoming EP will feature production from No I.D., DJ Dahi, and James Blake. Vince previously teased a song with James Blake earlier this year, and it promises to be another exciting collaboration for Vince, who has already appeared on tracks with the likes of Schoolboy Q and Flume so far this year. The release of PRIMA DONNA will be accompanied by a self-titled short film written by Vince and directed by Nabil. Vince has an incredible track record when it comes to visuals, so a pairing with Nabil sounds perfect.
