So far Staples has displayed his knack for writing solid hip-hop tracks with groove, memorable impact and hard, but cool flow. However, with his newest album 'Big Fish Theory', Staples takes it up a notch with a real game-changer.

'Crabs In A Bucket' gets things off to an ethereal start, with warm, drawn out keys. However, there's also something of a party vibe to this song with garage-like beats and cut-up vocals.
