Compton rapper Problem is hitting his 2017 hard with new material.
The California MC, who has worked with the rap legends like Snoop Dogg and E-40, released a double-visual for his self-produced track “Betta Watch Yo Self,” and “Light Work” featuring Tyrin “Caine” Turner (produced by Problem and JB Minor), off his upcoming Chachiville mixtape. The set drops Jan. 20 via Diamond Lane Music Group.
“Chachiville is the place I went musically to create this mixtape,” Problem told Billboard. “From production, song arrangement, vocal placement, concepts, mixing, song sequence; it all stemmed from the mind of Chachi.”
As for the set’s inspiration, Problem explains, “It was crafted while I was on my #litlifetour this summer, recorded mainly in different hotel rooms across the country. It serves as my break away from the nonsense that has been taking place in the world and within music. 13 great moments of me. Not a story, not a concept project, just 12 songs (and 1 skit) that can hold their own individually, yet still be cohesive enough to be all on one mixtape.”
