Busting out on his own, Cutthroat Boyz member Vince Staples makes it official with Hell Can Wait, his Def Jam debut. Coming in at 24 minutes and with seven cuts on the track list, this is EP-sized and not long enough for the full artist picture, but that said, there's no filler, either. "Blue Suede" is the hallucinatory highlight, giving the impression its a drug trip curated by Dr. Luke, but "65 Hunnid" is a close second, opening with muted trumpet straight of the '40s before evolving into a lurching street cut of which T.I. would approve. ~ David Jeffries
