According to a report from, Vince Staples is the kind of guy who has always had great cultural commentary. In a new conversation with reporters from GQ Magazine, Vince spoke on fashion, the current presidency, as well as the gossip industry.

For one, Vince thinks that Jussie Smollett shouldn't be held accountable to the full extent of the law because the Chicago Police Department hasn't been held to the same standard in recent years. He suggested for the police to free Jussie, because "he's just running a little scam."

He added that the Chicago Police Department gets to kill citizens, lie in their police reports," and then go home, so Smollett may as well get the right to do the same.

Moreover, Staples claims Smollett's choice to fake a hate crime was more about the entertainment industry in general rather than a reflection of Smollett's character. In other words, according to Staples, the fact he feels the need to do that in this world says more about the world than it does him.

As it was previously reported, Jussie Smollett allegedly faked a hate crime against himself in Chicago near the ending of January due to unhappiness with his Empire salary of $60,000.

Reports claim Jussie paid two Nigerian-American brothers to attack him, however, it has also been alleged in new reports that the money toward the two men was for personal training lessons. Rumor has it that Jussie now throwing the two Nigerian-Americans under the bus to save himself.

Moreover, Vince was also given the chance to talk about Khloe Kardashian's failed relationship, however, he managed to keep it relatively mum for the most part. He said it was simply not his business, before going on to say that anyone who even cares about that in the first place is a loser.

According to Staples, everyone involved is a giant loser, including the outlets themselves, the journalists, the reporters, and the people who actually take the time to read about it.

This comes after Tristan Thompson was busted cheating on Khloe Kardashian with Kylie Jenner's best friend, Jordyn Woods. The host of Revenge Body has apparently called off her romance with Tristan for good, and she's serious this time.
