Two days after the confirmation of rap star Mac Miller’s untimely death was from an apparent drug overdose, Vince Staples has paid tribute to Mac Miller, saying, “The good ones always die.”
Miller was found dead at his San Fernando Valley home on September 7. Earlier this week, his cause of death was confirmed to be from “mixed drug toxicity”, with fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol present in his system.
In an interview on Real 92.3’s Big Boy’s Neighborhood, Staples was asked whether there had been any signs that Miller might suffer an overdose. “He was trying,” he replied.
“All you can ask for is for somebody to try. You can’t always win, you know? Nah, I never seen him dying. He was too happy. But to be honest, the good ones always die. So it makes sense in retrospect, but I was never worried about him.”
Earlier this week Vince Staples came out of left field to announce he had a new untitled project dropping today (Nov. 2) in a series of tweets that also included the album’s subject matter and legendary guest appearances.
WOW! This new Vince Staples will feature the likes of California legends such as Vince Staples, Lil Fade, Kamaiyah, Jay Rock, T Raw, Vince from Poppy AND MANY MORE !!!

Remember when Vince Staples started a gofundme page for anyone that wanted to give him money to stop rapping? Looks like he had good reason to shut that page down as he’s taken to Twitter to announce that he’s got some new material on the way.
After months of radio silence from the Prima Donna rapper he suddenly announced that we’d get some new Vince Staples this week.
GOOD MORNING CITCH WE GOT NEW VINCE STAPLES THIS FRIDAY
Needless to say, it sounds like Vince Staples got some sh*t to say on his upcoming project. While we don’t know what the upcoming album will be called, Vince did take to IG to announce that it would be dropping this Thursday at 9pm while sharing a throwback photo of himself in a D-boy pose.
Vince Staples just landed his first-ever lead role in the indie feature, Punk. It’s lit.
Back in 2015, we saw Staples flex his acting chops in a minor role for Dope, but now he’s taking the lead. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Long Beach rapper is all set to play Peter, “who, after receiving a disheartening rejection letter, takes off on a road trip with a group of free spirits.”
Unfortunately for Peter, his new acquaintances are actually a band of bank robbers, “headed by a modern-day Robin Hood who is also on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list.”Punk was written by Richard Hughes, who will also direct. Brian Kavanaugh-Jones will produce, along with Braden Aftergood, THR reports.
Aside from his new role, Staples will perform live at ComplexCon next month. Future, Rae Sremmurd, Lil Baby, Action Bronson, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, and more are also scheduled to hit the stage. Stay tuned.
