Vince Staples wants haters to pay for his retirement from rap.
The Compton rapper set up a GoFundMe.com campaign after some backlash over his shows with Tyler, the Creator. On Wenesday, he posted a video for his Go Fund Me titled #GTFOMD, or Get The Fuck Off My Dick. In his GoFundMe video, Staples inspires his biggest critics to put their money where their mouth is: He will shut up forever for $2 million. He says in the video:
“Hey everybody, my name is Vince.
First and foremost I hope you’re having a great day, I really do. Second, we’ve got a lot of complaints about our recent show performances, energy on stage, production choice; I think one person said ‘it sounds like we’re rapping on robot video game beats.’ We would like to apologize for that.
Secondary, well this is tertiary I guess, we would like to give you an alternative. Onyou can decide to donate to the cause of $2 million dollars, which will allow me to shut the fuck up forever and you will never hear from me again. No songs, no interviews, no anything. If not, you can choose to let me do what the fuck I want to do, when I want to do it. Get off of my dick, or fund my lifestyle. The choice is yours. Either way we appreciate you.”
Staples posted the video with the caption, “Every penny counts.”
