Over the course of hip-hop history, Compton has been one of the most celebrated cities, with N.W.A.'s era-definingÂ Straight Outta ComptonÂ setting off an ongoing wave of tribute to the impoverished, violent section of South Central L.A. Following more recent tributes by Kendrick LamarÂ and YG, another one of the city's prominent rappers, Problem, has offered up a track titled "Compton."
Accompanied by Salva, who seems to have formed an excellent working relationship with him, Problem spits gritty bars over metallic, heavy-as-fuck production. This is certainly primed to join the ranks of the all-time best hip-hop tributes to the city.Â
All black on the stainless, black, rich and dangerous
Me and y'all team don't speak the same language
Famous and faded, I'll fade with famous
Pussy eatin' P, this is me, it ain't changin'
Never, 'cause the city I'm from
I pop that shit that make Diddy go dumb
