"'12 Problems' boasts production from Don Cannon and Cubeatz, who pair concrete drums and rumbling bass with a loop of disconcertingly heavenly choral vocals. On the track, Rapsody spits a pair of visceral verses that tackle police brutality, the prison industrial complex, the War on Drugs and more, pulling it all together with a chorus that puts a new spin on a classic Jay-Z hook: 'I got 99 problems and 12 still the biggest/I got 99 problems/Baton, bullets, triggers.'" - Rolling Stone
