    Vince Staples had a little fun last week when he called out the “robot video game beats” who criticize him to “get off of my dick, or fund my lifestyle” via a GoFundMe campaign. Staples sought to raise $2 million, but revealed a few days later that it was all a publicity stunt in advance of a new song, aptly titled “Get the Fuck Off My Dick”.

    Last night, Staples took to Twitter to announce that he’d not only be refunding all the donations, but personally matching and donating the full amount to the Michelle Obama Neighborhood Library in the rapper’s home city of Long Beach, California.

    “I expect to hear no further slander,” he writes cheekily, because lord knows the kinds of people who would donate money for a rapper to “shut the fuck up forever” probably won’t be thrilled by his choice of charity. Naturally, Staples takes a little dig at his critics at the end of the tweet. Read the full tweets below.
