In an ingenious bit of marketing, Vince Staples recently launched a GoFundMe campaign that may have had fans confused or amused depending on how you looked at it. The rapper is asking for $2 million to fund his early retirement, that’s where some people were confused. Why would the 24-year-old rapper want to retire?

In the video for his GoFundMe campaign, Vince explains that he’s been getting a lot of negative criticism on his music and live shows. To his detractors, Vince had this to say: “Get off my d*ck, or fund my lifestyle.” Now, here’s where the amusement comes in.

The GoFundMe campaign, which people are actually donating to, was a brilliant and innovative marketing move to promote his new single called--you guessed it--“Get the F*ck Off My D*ck” where Vince really lets his critics have it. You can listen below. Enjoy.

A quick update on Vince’s GoFundMe campaign. At the time of this writing, Vince was up to $1,562 despite the campaign being briefly taken down, which spawned some hilarious Tweets from the Long Beach rapper. You can check them out by clicking here.
