Back in May, Problem revealed his latest project Coffee & Kush Vol. 1, which saw ten new tracks from the west coast rapper. One of the standouts from the release is “Don’t Be Mad At Me,” which sees Problem trying to win his girl back over wax. The song was also included in his well-received short film A Compton Story, which centered around a “typical” day for the California star.

Last month, Problem upgraded “Don’t Be Mad At Me” by recruiting Freddie Gibbs and Snoop Dogg for the remix, and all three continue the “break-up to make-up” subject matter from the original:

“Damn, I see that lil’ look you givin’ me, oh yeah, light the sage, let’s exchange energy, nah, I get stupid, you know your man, do you forgive me, baby? I know you can, know you can/

Don’t be actin’ like you don’t want to, you may not want me, but I sure want you, and lettin’ you stay mad is what I sure won’t do, ’cause I’m your n***a and you my boo.../”

Now, Problem unveils a Mike Marasco-directed visual that features the trio at their most hilarious. The clip contains beautiful women, a game of basketball, and some old school whips to match.

In a recent interview with VIBE, Problem spoke on how A Compton Story brings to light the daily difficulties for a successful Black man:

“It’s just hectic for any black man, let alone a successful one. Just the randomness of s*** that can happen. ... Like, ‘Do I use my Compton s*** here? Or do I use my about to be 40 (years old) vibes?’ That’s the toughest part, knowing when to hit the gas and when to hit the brake.”
