Problem- The Separation (Mixtape)
I've been following Problem since about '07 or '08 and he has consistently been putting out hype L.A. party music since, although I've only truly dabbled in his work, never dove in head first. Well errbody, take that dive, cause his new Gangsta Grillz mixtape with DJ Drama, The Separation, is absolutely phenomenal. No he doesn't speak on deep, intellectual matter; Problem loves twisting fingers and banging his gang. But if you need a ride-out soundtrack to the summer, here it is. This project is absolutely filled to the brim with bangers, but none stand out as distinctly dope as "Roll Up" with T.I. and Snoop Dogg, er, Lion, a track with a beat that just gets better and better, making you want to drop whatever you're doing and blaze the day away. But the whole thang has cuts on cuts, so cop it on Datpiff; here's the selects.
