Marcus Manchild f/ Bun B – ‘Problems’ | Music Video


New South and Old South butt heads when Houston native Marcus Manchild enlisted UGK vet Bun B for his “Problems” track, off his recently released Space Jams 2 mixtape. Today, that melancholy number gets the visual treatment.

While Bun and his Texas counterparts are more familiar with projecting the image of a self-assured character (see: pimp), Marcus – who is hotly tipped to stand at the forefront of the South’s new wave of hip-hop – addresses life’s issues, confessing the reason he pops pills, smokes weed and drinks liquor is to escape these very problems.

Director Michael Artist provides the equally as hard-hitting visuals to enunciate Marcus’ words. Bun B’s presence is both warming yet ironic; he legitimises the young rapper’s music while helping to banish his claims of self-doubt. This is the type of Southern soul that only a handful of current artists are helping to replenish.
