Problem’s been working heavily throughout the course of the year. He’s already dropped two projects and is now gearing up to drop a third one. Back in August, he recruited Bad Lucc for the first single off of the Selfish project, “Get On It”. While at the time, he announced that he’d be releasing a new project, today he officially kicks the campaign off. The release of “Mission Statement” is just an introduction. Along with “Mission Statement”, he’s unveiled the release date for his upcoming project Selfish. The project is slated to release on November 3rd, so mark your calendars.
“Mission Statement” features Problem on much darker production. The song opens up with a haunting piano progression as he goes into retrospect. Problem taps into his old self as he details his old ways of life, his old way of thinking and his old perception of the world. Problem explores the idea of ridding the former mentality he once had in order to rebuild. In comparison to “Get On It”, it’s a much more personal piece of work from Problem. The track was produced by Problem as well as JB Minor. The two of them have worked side by side on many occasions.
The song also got a video to accompany it. In a black and white video directed by George Jeff, the video finds Chachi kidnapping and destroying Problem’s former ways of life. The visual matches up well to the song, from the way to video cuts to it’s coloring, it all helps portray Problem’s idea on a grander scale.
