While it is not limited solely to those in the third world, "Third World Problems" is indicative of a mindset - of one who was given nothing (or very little), but somehow manages to make the most out of what they have through sheer ingenuity. Music and musicians seek to celebrate diversity (and at the same time, unity of the common human experience) by showing that although we come from different cultures and may speak with different slang, at the end of the day we are all extremely similar people dealing with the same circumstances throughout the globe. Through music (and hiphop in particular, the music of the urban streets), we can try to understand and pass on our life experiences in dealing with the trials and tribulations 21st century living presents us with. Whether doing this through partying, through deep meditation, attempting to improve one's life through monetary acquisition, or through violent outbursts, we all simply want to better our existence while attempting to communicate our state with our peers.
