Fun Staples rapping over house? Ok, "Big Fish Theory" is definitely a departure from his previous projects, and that's not a bad thing - though his strongest moments are when Vince is more on the traditional tip on "745", the call-and-response "Yeah Right" & "Homage" (perfect Rozay interpolation), "BagBak", and the title cut "Big Fish". The only problem with that particular track annd "Samo" (which holds the best verse on the album in where Staples emulates Rocky's flow pattern on the first verse dropping cold bars comparing himself to ODB in one) is that yeah there is more than enough room for a verse from the featured MC's. Alas, it appears that Vince had let alot of baggage go since his last record (even though he still raps about the pressures of society and the effects of the world in his own mind like on "Party People" & "BagBak", but that's just the job of the artist that Vince more than rises to the occasion for) for this album to even exist, his voice sounds lighter on the intro "Crabs In A Bucket" which carries cadenecally throughout the rest of the album mostly, definitely something to get adjusted to, but eventually just like the weight disperesed after letting go - you get used to it.
Kilo Kish is super peaceful throughout this album by the way, that "Alyssa Interlude" too?! "The Big Fish Theory" - a light album in runtime, features, and vibrations but definitely not on content.
