Rapper Problem performed at The El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles on Wednesday evening. Needless to say, the concert was quite an event and Problem proved his place in the music industry.

"The Separation Tour" is a week-long opportunity for Problem and his friends to travel through California and Arizona. Before coming to Los Angeles, the tour travelled to Sacramento, Oakland, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, and Santa Cruz. After, Problem will be going to Phoenix and Pomona.

The El Rey is an intimate venue, less than 800 people are allowed. Like in Santa Cruz and Oakland, Los Angeles was a sold-out show for Problem. The stage was considerably plain, with only a small band and a DJ set onstage. Two banners promoting the tour are placed on other side of the stage.

Problem's lineup consists of Jinsu, Clyde Carson, TeeFLii, Bad Lucc, and Eric Bellinger. in a shocking turn of events, Problem brought out a few more familiar faces to prove himself as a force to be reckoned with.

Problem's new EP "Understand Me" drops December 10th for Diamond Lane Music Group. It can be preordered on iTunes now.
