Problems is a new jam from Tampa based hip hop producer, “M.A.D. Smooth.” It also features the artists “L-Quote” & “Reason.” The song combines futuristic, synth style beats with minimalist vibes. The rappers’ confidence is apparent and justified as the song frequently breaks into freestyle-like, spoken word poetry bursts. In other words, Problems doesn’t rely on smoke and mirrors and flash, preferring to ride it out on substance. The mellow pacing allows the track to make creative use of timing, with strategic pauses evoking moments of suspense and unpredictability. The accompanying video helps illustrate the song’s story about a couple struggling with (as you might have guessed) relationship…well, “problems.” Both the video and the song are professionally produced and well done. Problems captures the dueling relationship states of confidence and vulerability.
