A$AP Rocky Reflects On Violence In Hip-Hop On New Track ‘Same Problems?’

A$AP Rocky recently shared a new track called “Same Problems?” that reflects on violence in hip-hop.

“N*** dyin’ every other night/N*** cryin’, that’s a part of life/Lyin’ to my face, tryna say that it’s all good/No, I’m not alright,” he raps.

“How many problems get solved?/ Am I a product of things that I saw?/ How many problems get solved?/ Am I proud of the things in my songs?” he further asks in the single’s chorus.

During an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, Rocky explained that he wrote the track because he “was feeling remorse.”

“I think I was feeling plight. I think I was also feeling a sense of guilt, because every time we lose somebody in our community, we all – especially me – have a habit of just saying things like, ‘It’s messed up. It’s wrong. Why do these kind of things happen?'” he said.
