Compton rapper Problem recently dropped his latest DJ Drama-hosted mixtape, The Separation, so he stops by ThisIs50.com for a chat with Jack Thriller.

During the interview, he offers up a freestyle, explains what it was like growing up in Compton, how he has created his buzz in recent years… because he’s driving in the Diamond Lane; and getting great advice from Snoop Dogg.

Problem’s The Separation is out now. It features Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg, T.I., The Game, Tyga, Glasses Malone, and Chris Brown, among others.
