Problem serves up “Life Lessons” in new video
The single is taken from September’s ‘Coffee & Kush, Vol. 2.’
It’s been a few months since Problem graced the world with the second installment of his Coffee & Kush series, which sees 11 tracks and additional features from Tyrese, Jack Harlow, Jay Rock, Terrace Martin, Freddie Gibbs, Snoop Dogg, and more. Following visuals for “Don’t Be Mad At Me (Remix),” “Nothin,” “Florence,” and “Keep Ya Head,” the Compton emcee reveals a new clip for the Keith Boyd and Lyle Leduff-produced “Life Lessons.” The video mainly shows Problem walking around the neighborhood with a dancing youth named Prince while he dishes out pertinent advice:
“Compton, never forget where I come from, where you’re taught not to act like where babies come from, wild child, young nut, like where babies come from, I can’t think of two things I done ran from/
‘Sides the police, or the police, no justice, no peace, keep your dog on your leash, money on my mind, don’t hustle, don’t eat, back-to-back-to-back business, park them all on my street…/”
Viewers can also see scenes in the clip from Problem’s short film A Compton Story, which was released earlier this year and centered around everyday situations that take place in his hometown. Popular comedians and actors like Mike Epps and Jackie Long made appearances throughout.
Coffee & Kush, Vol. 1 was released back in May, and began the aforementioned series with 10 thought-provoking cuts, including “Janet (Freestyle)” and the original version of “Don’t Be Mad At Me.” As stated via press release, the music also acts as promo for Problem’s Green Hour Coffee brand — those interested in picking up some can head over to the product’s official website.
