On Friday (Nov. 3), JasonMartin — who many previously knew as Problem — unveiled the first part of a new project titled A Compton Story, which boasts A-list contributions from Diddy, Hit-Boy, Childish Gambino, KAYTRANADA, Harry Fraud, Tank, DJ Quik, and more. The project is a loose continuation of A Compton Story, a short film that brought viewers into the rapper’s rollercoaster life within the Los Angeles suburb. Come Nov. 17, fans will get to check out the second part of A Compton Story, which will boast additional features from ScHoolboy Q, Valee, Xzibit, LaRussell, Wiz Khalifa, Terrace Martin, and more.

Earlier this month, Martin confirmed his name change with the well-received single “I Can’t Believe (They’re Smoking Weed In Brooklyn).” “Can’t believe they smoking weed in Brooklyn, reminiscing ’bout the boys I hit jooks wit’, modern day crook s**t, reform, far from the normal, he rapped on the Grandz Muzik and Buda Da Future-produced offering.

“I think at this stage in my life, my career, just personally, physically, mentally, spiritually, I just think it’s really doing an injustice calling myself Problem,” the rapper explained in an interview on “Big Boy‘s Neighborhood.” “I’m really more solution-based anyway. I’m just at a new phase and I’m taking it back to the future. Jason created Problem, if you really wanna think about it.”

He continued, “I’ve actually been thinking about doing this since 2017. I had a talk with 2 Chainz about it, and he kinda, ‘You should go for it.’ Then I got talked out of it by the homies or whatever. I just think it’s time, bro. Sometimes you just gotta hit the button. You can’t be afraid… It’s no time like the present. I got my daughters graduating from college. I got another one in the second year of college.”
