Vince Staples Reshapes Charlie Puth’s ‘Suffer’ and Makes It Worth Hearing
'Nine Track Mind' came out last month
“See You Again” songsmith Charlie Puth released his critically reviled debut album Nine Track Mind last month, a collection of mostly insipid, sonically disinterested tunes and jingles. Today, though, Long Beach rapper Vince Staples has hopped on a remix of Puth’s “Suffer” and the resulting rework is actually a pretty palatable song.
Sure, we could do without the 24-year-old New Jersey singer howling “Wanna make love” over and over, but the gristly, hazy production and Staples’ lolling, stream of consciousness rhymes make “Suffer” worth suffering through.
