For five years, Compton’s Problem has been just that. With critical cosigns and early career work from DJ Quik and Snoop Dogg, the patient rapper has steadily fed his Heads with nine, largely-acclaimed mixtapes. A year removed from The Separation, the Diamond Lane Music Group standout dropped 354: The Liftoff today (August 28).

Hosted by the L.A. Leakers, this street album/tape available for stream includes appearances from Childish Gambino and label-mate Bad Lucc, with beats by Zaytoven and Mars of 1500 Or Nothin’.
