Hip-hop, Cuba, Miami and the creative process with Mario Obregón of Problem Kids

Mario Obregón is a founding member of the band Problem Kids. Their fusion of hip-hop with Caribbean rhythms is as patently Miami as their ability to swing from irreverent to introspective from one verse to the next.

Mario is also a high school friend of Mike's. In this sit-down, they talk about Mario's beginnings in music, the similarities and difference between their creative processes, and Mario's maturation as an artist. Mario also gets into the mission work he does in his mother's hometown in Cuba.
