What Life is Like in South Los Angeles | “Problems” by Nana

You don’t ever want problems with the king.

Formerly known as Blaison Maven, Nana rebrands himself to his birth name (which means “King” in his parents’ native Ghanaian tribe of Ashanti), to provide authenticity with every track he releases.
