Problem says, “This one feels different…musically, physically, mentally, sonically, financially. In every way possible. This is just the beginning. ️”
ABC News recently featured Problem in a special report about inspiring hope and just doing what’s right for his hometown of Compton. “We do a lot of focusing on what’s wrong in the city and I just want to stop that,” said Problem. “I want to just start giving the community hope. And I see so much room for growth.” Starting with Compton’s own frontline medical workers, Problem will be showing his appreciation with free coffee from his Green Hour Coffee delivery service.
Coffee & Kush Vol 1 features the poignant Nipsey Hussle tribute “Janet Freestyle (Remix)” produced by Nipsey’s in-house production team and Grammy-nominated Mike & Keys that premiered earlier this month on Complex. “I originally recorded the song alone on my balcony to the beat from Janet Jackson’s ‘Got ‘till It’s Gone’, explains Problem. “Then I played it for Mike & Keys and it immediately struck a nerve in them. So they added their magic to flip it for this tribute.” Problem released his original J Dilla version of the track as an Instagram exclusive and received a nod and approval from the legendary Ms. Janet Jackson herself.
