Young RJ drops the visuals for "Issues."
Slum Village's Young RJ has already established himself as a great producer in the rap game. The changing line-up to Slum Village has found him as well as T3 as the two lasting members, currently. However, Young RJ has been applying his skills on a microphone for his own solo career. While he has his long-awaited solo album Blaq RoyalT coming this October, he's been releasing solid single after solid single. The last one being the project "Issues" featuring BJ the Chicago Kid. Today, he drops the incredible visuals for the third single off of his upcoming debut album.
The song gets a great visual to accompany it. While the point of the song is how everybody has their own problems to deal with that may not be shown on the outside looking in, the video becomes his platform to really visualize the concept. The video follows a couple that are going through financial issues and shows how they cope with their own problems as well as attempting to fix them as well. The male lead in the video has issues with alcoholism which leads to domestic disputes between his wife and himself. It later shows how she attempts to get money.
The video overall showcases a reality that many face but never discuss. While he does a great song expressing that within his song, the video finds a focal point within his theme and narrows in on it.
As the release date for his Blaq RoyalT album inches closer and closer, the anticipation to hear what he has up his sleeves is high. As he has proved himself as a great producer in his past, he also shows that he is an exceptional rapper as well. As "Issues" is his third single off the project, it'll be interesting to see what else he has in store on the rest of the project.
