Vince Staples gave a post-Coachella interview to Everyday Struggles' Nadeska Alexis, and revealed some opinions about R. Kelly.
The Long Beach rapper performed at the huge desert festival then sat down to do a livestreamed interview with the web host.
Things immediately took a turn for the unexpected: Vince Staples read from her tele-prompter, and began discussing Teslas.
Suddenly, the conversation switched to R. Kelly, who the rapper labelled "a piece of fucking shit" and "a child molester".
Vince Staples opened with Teslas: "I’ve got one more year on probation. When my last year of probation is over, I’m breaking speed limits — I’m doing wild shit..."
He added: "You don’t go to prison if you’re a black entertainer. Only if you’re a black gangster rapper. I’m changing my whole path."
Need an example?
"Think about it: R. Kelly never went to jail, and he’s a f*cking child molester. He’s a child molester and he pees on people and he can’t read and write, and he didn’t go to jail. I’m a good person — R. Kelly’s a piece of f*cking sh*t. So, if piece of f*cking shit R. Kelly didn’t go to jail for being a child molester and peeing on people and having a human trafficking ring in Atlanta, then I’ll be alright."
Visibly uncomfortable, Nadeska commented that the interview could "get her fired". Vince shot back: "Because R. Kelly a piece of sh*t? He don’t work here. They should have booked R. Kelly if they like R. Kelly so much. He would have pissed on somebody in the crowd. Because he pees on people."

Vince Staples kept the conversation flowing on Twitter:
