Vince Staples a mass of seeming contradictions

Hip-hop star Vince Staples' new single, "BagBak," has sharp electronic production, clearly influenced by dance music and contemporary DJs, which he hasn't shown much of in breakthrough albums such as 2015's "Summertime '06" and last year's "Prima Donna" EP. But Staples says the sound is of a piece with his earlier work, including "Blue Suede" and "Like It Is."

Burning of the Socks

Georgetown residents burn their socks, an annual tradition that symbolizes the start of boating season. Bob Turner, now a Pawley's Island resident, claims to have started the Burning of the Socks festival in 1978 in Annapolis, Md. Five years ago, Johnny Weaver started the tradition in Georgetown to help raise funds for the South Carolina Maritime Museum.
