Compton artist Problem releases the music video for “Just Outside,” from his album Coffee & Kush Vol 2 available now. In the lush cinematic visual, Problem reflects on life during the pandemic as a bird’s eye view sweeps over the Hollywood hills. The video ends with the camera zooming in for a jarring surprise.
Problem explains, “We didn’t know what we had until it was gone. Stay Alert. Stay Ready. Stay ALIVE.”
Coffee & Kush Vol 2 released last year and includes features from Jack Harlow, Jay Rock, Snoop Dogg, Freddie Gibbs, Tyrese, Spoon, and Daphne Wayans with production from Problem, Don Cannon, Mike & Keys and Terrace Martin. VIBE recently declared “PROBLEM IS A HIP-HOP GREAT!”, while Inked said, “Compton, California has raised some of hip-hop’s greatest stars, and lyricist Problem is ensuring his name will be remembered among them.” Moreover, Ambrosia For Heads named the album in their Top 20 Best Rap Albums Of 2020.
In addition to his music, Problem has been hard at work releasing episodes of his Morning Walks interview series, produced by his own film company 50million Media and sponsored by his coffee line Green Hour Coffee. Guests have included NBA all-star DeMar DeRozen, media mogul Nick Cannon, NFL all-star Marcellus Wiley, and rapper Xzibit.
Problem also wrote, directed, and starred in his short film A Compton Story for 50million Media. The film premiered on TIDAL this April and is currently available on his IGTV here. A Compton Story 2 is currently in production and will be out in 2021.
