- Artist: Raz Simone
- Track: Same Problems
- Producer: Jake Crocker
- Album: Macklemore Privilege & Chief on Keef Violence EP
I never thought I’d say this, but I’m starting to feel a little bit sorry for Macklemore. Sure, he’s got enough cash to clean out every thrift store in the country, but no amount of wealth can protect you from being taken to task by a master wordsmith like Raz Simone. Unlike other recent singles by the Seattle repper, Same Problems doesn’t mention the GRAMMY-winning emcee by name, but it’s not hard to figure out who (among others) Raz is referencing when he complains about white artists getting airplay on stations that would never spin a black rapper. Gifted Gab and Fatal Lucciauno guest on this record, which is produced by Jake Crocker and features visuals directed by Raz Simone and Jacob Hill.
