about

FIRST THINGS FIRST: the clean edit and unedited vocal versions of the song are free to download! to get the full digital single with INSTRUMENTAL and A CAPELLA mixes, you can order a t-shirt or pay five tiny canadian dollars!

THE STORY: In 2013, when I was on tour with mc chris, Tribe One, and Dr Awkward, I started performing what became the hook of this song at every show, as grudging tribute to the famous A$AP Rocky posse cut, and also to bring the audiences of those 52 shows together in celebration of how we all have problems. BIG ONES.

It quickly became the most popular moment of my set - people seemed to love shouting BLEMS and PRO and I felt like I was really connecting and opening them up to all my other songs that are also about having problems, but in more detail. So midway through the tour I printed 100 t-shirts and tank tops of the whole chorus, as typeset by Toronto graphic designer JJ Pare who used to live in Buck 65's old semi-detached home. Sales of that shirt kept me alive then, and kind of ever since?

I planned to make a posse cut featuring my tourmates and other friends as SOON AS I GOT HOME from that tour, but I didn't! MMAC made me a beat and I still didn't manage to get a posse cut together. THAT IN ITSELF WAS A PROBLEM.

Then like two years later, Drake dropped his IF U READ THIS THEN UR TWO LATE SORY mixtape, and it was so grouchy and petulant and anti-internet and FUN that it snapped me out of my reverie and before I knew it, the problems had all spilled out of me.

Now they are yours provblems.

Track Name: fml lol smdh (clean edit)
I love big problems, that's my fucking problem
Good thing I love problems, got a lot of problems
Like 99 Problems, yo you want some problems?
My problem's got a problem, that's a problem problem.

I love big problems, that's my fucking problem
Good thing I love problems, got a lot of problems
I gotta love my problems, all I got is problems
What's a problem to a problem? What's your fucking problem?

Probably problem number one is being fat
Not really that, but the people that'll treat you bad
Like, "are you eating that?" Yeah, it's fucking lunch time!
Don't treat my body like a motherfucking punchline!
My second problem is a bad temper I've had
since a kid, and an attitude I have to censor
and after that? Gender! you should go
buy the single for the song i wrote about it cause I'm so
Broke, with no education and a whole lot of pride - y'know what I'm saying?
No? That's 'cause of problem number six
Where you can't understand when I'm talking 'cause the lisp
And the disorders that punched giant holes
In my emotions as a kid went undiagnosed
I suppose that half my friends have been abused
In a sense that sensitized us to the news
How are you?

I love big problems, that's my fucking problem
Good thing I love problems, got a lot of problems
Like 99 Problems, yo you want some problems?
My problem's got a problem, it's a problem problem.

I love big problems, that's my fucking problem
Good thing I love problems, got a lot of problems
I got all of my problems, all I got is problems
What's a problem to a problem? What's your fucking problem?

Can't finish a record for procrastinating
No drive at all, I ain't even masturbating
Go to bed when I throw them tunes on
No new friends and my old friends moved on
My promise has proved wrong, my crew's on the tube sans
Me - this shit is three years old, it's my new song!
School stopped letting me cruise on a handout
Nothing panned out, I got canned from two jobs
Can't drive at all, how'm I supposed to hit the road, then?
Came out as queer but I still hate most men!
Closed in, frozen, my goals made my life worsen
Half my heroes let me down, the other half: vice versa
Try to be a nice person, but I'm a dick or get walked on
I'm addicted to conflict and face book dot com
I wanted this to be a posse cut, but I'm disorganized
and suck at prioritizing - fuck it, i guess that's sort of my problem

I love big problems, that's my fucking problem
Good thing I love problems, got a lot of problems
Like 99 Problems, yo you want some problems?
My problem's got a problem, that's a problem problem.

I love big problems, that's my fucking problem
Good thing I love problems, got a lot of problems
I love all of my problems, all I got is problems
What's a problem to a-- fuck it.

Somebody say problems, everybody
PROBLEMS "All together now!"
Somebody say problems, let me hear you
PROBLEMS
And alright, now, when I say "PRO," you say "BLEMS"
Pro! BLEMS! Pro! BLEMS!
And when I say "BLEMS," you say "PRO"
Blems! PRO! Blems! PRO!

I got, you got, he got, she got PROBLEMS
I got, you got, we got, they got PROBLEMS
"We got problems" Big ones... WOW
We packin problems the size of Little Bow Wow

"We got problems"
"You got problems, man?"
"That's right, I got problems and personal issues"
"We got problems"
"Nobody helps me when I got problems, when I got problems?"
"That's right, I got problems and personal issues"​
