Slum Village’s Young RJ has already established himself as a great producer. Now, he applies his emcee skills alongside BJ The Chicago Kid for the “Issues” visual –
While the point of the song is how everybody has their own problems to deal with that may not be visibly seen, the video becomes his platform to really visualize the concept. “Issues” follows a couple that are going through financial issues and visualizes how they cope as well as attempting to fix them. The male lead in the video has problems with alcoholism which leads to domestic disputes between his wife and himself. It later shows how she attempts to get money. Overall, Young RJ showcases a reality that many face but never discuss. While he does a great job of expressing that within the lyrics and the cinematic finds a focal point within his theme.
