Long Beach-native Vince Staples is not only one of rap's brightest stars, he is also one of its most natural comedians. On Twitter, the 22-year-old lets his real self shine, tweeting as if he's texting his followers his random thoughts, stream-of-consciousness style. Between pop culture references and a straightforward approach to race and race relations, some of Staples' funniest moments come from his deep love for Sprite, a brand he not only enjoys but is also the face of and has represented with a gung-ho fervor.
