Get off Vince Staples’ dick. Per the request of the 25-year-old Compton rapper, who has a penchant for speaking the truth, no matter how uncomfortable it might make his publicist. In a recent interview, Staples calls making music a “scam,” sympathizes with Empire actor Jussie Smollett’s alleged self-inflicted predicament, and refers to pizza as “disgusting.” But where Staples is at his best is behind the mic and more specifically on last year’s FM! — a love letter to the West Coast on which Staples packs each bar with enviable dexterity. JPEGMAFIA and Katori Walker are also on the bill.

Vince Staples will perform at 7 p.m. on Sunday, March 10 at the Royal Oak; 318 W. Fourth St., Royal Oak; 248-399-2980; royaloakmusictheatre.com; Tickets are $29.50+.
