Problem pays homage to the late Nipsey Hussle with his latest, “Janet Freestyle (Remix).”

Produced by frequent Nipsey collaborators Mike & Keys, the track was inspired by the legendary Janet Jackson. “I originally recorded the song alone on my balcony to the beat from Janet’s ‘Got ‘Till It’s Gone’,” Problem said to Complex. “After I played Mike & Keys that version it immediately struck a nerve in them. So when the time came [to] lay down the version you hear now, it was no-brainer to have them add their magic to it. E. Dan came with the keys, then my brother Terrace Martin blessed it with saxophone and vocoder and it all just started coming together.”

Problem recently released his comedic short film, A Compton Story, as a TIDAL-only exclusive initially, but has since released it for everyone to enjoy. That can be seen below, too.
