“Issues” is a creative collaboration between two artists that share a similar artistry & background. The pair previously collaborated together on “Expressive“, which was included on Slum Village’s ‘YES‘ album and the duo link up again as RJ delivers thought provoking lyrics with BJ The Chicago Kid finessing the track with his soulful vocals and paint a picture of our current political climate, inner cities, & of course… personal inner demons.
Young RJ commented to Okayplayer:
“This collaboration could have not come at a better time. Given the economic struggles in cities like Detroit and Chicago, current police violence and our current political climate.”
“Issues” is the third single from RJ’s forthcoming, ‘Blaq RoyalT’, which is slated to be released on 10.10.2017!!! It follows “Huh?” & “Wait” featuring Pete Rock & Boldy James and the video for “Wait” which featured a rare appearance from both of J Dilla’s daughters.
As always, Young RJ is setting the bar high for himself and the artists which will appear on ‘Blaq RoyalT’ (BJ The Chicago Kid, Pete Rock, Boldy James, De La Soul, Joyner Lucas, etc.) and creating his own undeniable wave.
