The Things I Carry: Problem

April 04, 2013

We always like to know what some of our favorite artists carry in their purses (and man-purses)—the essential items that they need for touring, subway rides, or any other thing that they might be doing these days, which is why we’ve made it a regular column on the site.

"Like Whaaat" rapper Problem made an impromptu stop at FADER offices yesterday (interview coming soon). He emptied his pockets, revealing a light load: big and mini lighters, large and small bills. Most notably, along with two phones, there was a pager, its calling number neatly affixed to the back on a label sticker. Problem heads out on a mostly West Coast tour with Iamsu! next week, culminating in a May 15th New York show. See dates and buy tickets here.
