At this rate, California’s practically spitting out singers as quick as they are rappers. Smooth crooning, Oakland native Adrian Marcel keeps it in the bay, snagging Sage The Gemini and Problem for his remix of “2AM.” For a song that’s about getting with a girl after the bars have closed and booze has long been consumed, it’s surprisingly not creepy, and quite sincere. Whaaaat? Problem’s ad-lib always makes anything better, too.
