“Prblms” is a single by American singer 6lack. It was released on September 23, 2016, by LoveRenaissance and Interscope Records. The track was produced by Nova. The song was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The song contains a sample from Forest Swords’ original composition “Irby Tremor”.
He knows he played a part in her being the way she is now, but can’t help the fact that he might want love one week, and they want to be alone the next week. He’s asking himself “Why you do that?” because he’s aware of his actions, but honestly, doesn’t know why he is the way he is.
I remember it like it was yesterday. I used to pride myself on not dealing with nobody crazy, as far as relationships go. So I would always be like, “I’ve never dealt with nobody crazy.” Because I just don’t attract that. For once, I got into a situation where everybody was like, “Don’t do it.” And I was like, “Nah, I got this. This is what I do.” And I did it, and it just spun out of control. “PRBLMS” was born. Everything in the song was verbatim what I was dealing with at the time. These were direct lines, literally from text messages to actual arguments and conversations.
The “PRBLMS” beat was given to me by my in-house producer, who is not Nova. This dude Sengod. And Sengod is kind of like me, just searching on the Internet. He finds a dope beat and just shoots me ideas. He shot me the beat first, and obviously, I went to Nova with the song, like “I know I don’t know you, but we might have something here.”
The video for “PRBLMS” premiered October 14th, 2016. In an email sent to Complex, 6LACK said that the visuals mirror his current life.
I wanted to let people know exactly where I am. It’s a huge transitional period for me right now. I’m free, and am getting ready to release the first body of work that best reflects who I am and where I am in my life. The ‘PRBLMS’ video represents a fresh start in every realm.
